My Bloggers’ Quilt Festival Entry

I almost didn’t get a quilt in the festival this week!  But here I am blogging at the last minute – it just didn’t seem right to not have a post!

This is one of my favorite quilts, that I made and wrote a pattern for after turning in all my quilts for Modern Basics.  It was a simple, relaxed, meditative process, instead of the rush of book production.  I really enjoyed taking my time with it, even though it did go together pretty quick!

I used linen with Moda Crossweaves which I love.  They are so vibrant and yet have subtle variations to them.

The touch of color in the binding is one of my favorite details, and I love the heft that the linen gives to the entire quilt.  It is quite snuggly to sit with on the couch!

I hope you have enjoyed the festival – I know I have!

    I’m glad you posted a quilt.. I tried to get my daughter to post one today… She has only made a few in her whole life. Thanks for hosting a great Festival. I look forward to visiting more Blogs. Can’t see them all in a week.

    Your quilt is lovely – soothing colours, clear lines, very laid-back. Thanks for sharing and thank you again for hosting this awesome event – a twice-a-year milestone for me.

    Beautiful soft solid colours, reminds me of beach huts and pebble beaches- weatherworn tones- lovely!

    Your quilt looks great. Love the colours and the design. It is good that you have had the chance to sew for yourself and not a rush for deadline. Seems to make everything a lot easier.

    This is a great quilt! I love the simplicity of it. I’m finding I enjoy quilts like this one more and more in my quilting journey. It’s very peaceful to look at…if that makes sense. Thank you SO much for hosting such an awesome festival! This was my first time participating and I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s quilts, as well as meeting some great blogger’s.

    Would be wonderful to win. Would make something special.

    Looks exactly like something I made… Okay, my brown may have been darker and one version was more girly and one more boy-ee (LOL). Way too many babies this past year… But it’s super nice when you can make three at once……..
    Thanks for the idea!
