Blogger's Quilt Festival

Rona's post has inspired me to link up to Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival :-)

The quilt I am most proud of lately is my Quadruple Disappearing Nine Patch:
I had started out as a play with a Double Disappearing Nine Patch as seen on A Few Scraps, and challenged by my oldest DS I developed it into a Triple and then a Quadruple D9.
In addition I learnt how to quilt Diane Gaudinsky's Echo Feathers and experimented with the scale of background stippling as see on the Free Motion Quilting Project.



For the first time I quilted a Super King Size Quilt as QAYG - this made dealing with such a beast WAY easier! The method I used came from Mari at The Quilting Edge!

Not only did I end up with a quilt I truly love, to me it also symbolises all the teaching and learning out there in the blogosphere! I truly believe that in our modern, connected world, learning can happen anywhere, anytime and by anyone.

Now I'm off to check out all those awesome quilts at the festival...

  2. Fantastic. I love how you used the joining stripes to add to the overall design. the design would make it easy to change the accent colors in the room.
