I've been entering the Blogger's Quilt Festival for two or three years now - I love that it brings together bloggers from all over who share a passion for making quilts.
For the Spring Festival I am entering my second version of my Modern Sampler - I stitched along with my classes on this one and it actually was quite a departure in colour for me. I have been keen to try out a darker background and chose a small b & w spot. My other fabrics started off from a fat 1/8 bundle of Kate Spain Cuzco and I went from there, using my stash if I could.
The quilt was constructed in four panels and then joined with wide strips, using QAYG techniques, this was the basis of the course for 2014/15 and if you are interested in seeing some of the others you can view a slideshow of my end of term show HERE
But today is all about me, ha!
The quilt measures 72" x 84" and I quilted it at home using black Aurifil #50 which, stitching black on black nearly did for my eyesight! Wadding/batting was Hobbs 80/20 in black and the backing was Ikea cheapo black & white alphabet fabric. (actually a duvet cover)
It's always nice to have your work appreciated.
I think I shall enter this into the Large Quilts category.
If you have popped over to have a look, thank you, and for those of you who are regular readers, why don't you visit the main site for a wonderful array of quilts, with more being added all the time.
