It’s time once again for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, sponsored as always, by Amy from Amy’s Creative Side. I am so so so glad I happened to see Prairie Moon Quilts Tweet about this! I might have missed it and that would have been TERRIBLE! I love this festival – so many great quilts to look and and such talent all over! Please keep in my Quilt 138 when you nominate your favorites!
I knew right away that I wanted to show of my ‘Amazing Technicolor Dream Quilt’.
I made this quilt because of a scrap challenge and it’s one of those pieces that you make because of dream you have in your mind. I have those dreams often but they don’t always turn out the way I hope they will. This is one of those dreams that really did turn out! It was way more work than I thought it was going to be but it was so so so worth it!
Approximate Dimensions: 62″ x 76″
I really love how that the quilt looks totally different depending on which angle you look at it.
Every piece of this quilt came from my scrap bin. I used the ‘free form quilting method’ and it was machine quilted by Barb Raisbeck of Quilts by Barb. You can read more about how this quilt came to be HERE.
The festival starts today, and runs through November 9. It’s open to anyone who wants to enter, and there will be lots of great prizes. Be sure to check it out NOW! Get your post written and show off your quilt!
Nominations will be made November 1st through the 4th. My Amazing Technicolor Dream Quilt (Quilt 138) would be a wonderful fit Best in the following categories:
Favorite Throw Quilt
Favorite ROYGBIV Quilt
Favorite Scrap Quilt
Thanks for all your support! I’m so excited that in just 3 days I’ll be back to the quilting and creating world! It’s bittersweet that our apple crop was terrible this year but the sweet part means I’ll be at my machine a month earlier than normal!
