Blogger's Quilt Festival

17 May 2012

I am super excited about my first link up with Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival!  I have followed her festivals in the past, but now I have finally decided to participate!  I'm not gonna lie, I am a little intimidated of all the talent that will be showing up, nevertheless, I will link up anyway!

Julie of, Jolie Maxtin, and I started a new swap last month.  The Modern She Made Swap has been a great success for our first round and I have finally finished my project for my partner.  My partner loves color, hand quilting, and flea market fancy.  So I tried to combine all three elements into her mini quilt.  



This was the first time that I really dove into english paper piecing.  Don't get me wrong I have done a little here and there, but never as the bulk of a project.  I also added some hand quilting.  Hopefully my partner will love it as much as I do.  It will be making it's way to it's new destination in the next week or so.


So here it is, my submission to Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Here goes nothin'!

  6. This is so beautiful Lori! I love everything about it - especially the handstitching. The only paper piecing I have ever tried was hexagons but this is inspiring me to try some more.
