Blogger’s Quilt Festival :: Fall 2014 Edition!

Here is my second entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  This time I am entering a small quilt that I made last spring.  This little one was made to hang at the Creative Stitches show last spring in Abbotsford, BC.  We had a display of quilts including Modern Mini Quilts.  I had a lot of fun with this and used a paper piecing block from Amy's blog.   And if you follow that link, you can make it too.  

Have you noticed how bright it is?  I used some very vivid prints and the background is from the Comma line for Moda.  Some people actually thought I had done some awesome free motion quilting in black but that is actually a print.  I thought it was a lot of fun to use the different coloured setting triangle and then I matched the binding to the triangles.  I felt extremely clever when that worked out almost perfectly! And I did a combination of straight line quilting and free motion quilting in several colours of lovely Aurifil all in 40 wt for texture.  This Way and That.  It now lives on a wall in our house and it makes me quite delighted when I see it hanging.  


  1. This is a beautiful quilt, I love the colours you used especially!

  2. Oh, I love this! The colors are fabulous, and I can't believe how perfectly you matched up the binding!

  3. Very nice! I like the colors you used.

  4. Yes I noticed how bright it was, ha's why it catches the eye! :) VERY nice pattern, quilt, and colors :)

  5. This quilt is full of energy. Love the way that you were able to line those binding edges up. I would have gone nuts with the ruler and calculator trying to figure it out!

  6. Neat design. I can see why you love this quilt. I really like how you lined up the binding!

  7. The colours are fantastic! And I love the energy the quilting brings to it as well, the whole quilt feels like it's zinging!
