It's time to celebrate quilts! This is my first time participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival and I would like to thank Amy. Sew.... "Thank you for hosting, Amy!" And thank you to all her wonderful sponsors who have made this year's festival possible!
I sure have enjoyed reading through many of the posts of past entries, from the last three years, and am sew excited to be a part of this year's festival!
Flowers in the Sun
After seeing Julie Pickles - Mod Pop quilt, I wanted to design something using curved piecing, too. I had been wanting to make a full size quilt and this is the second project I came up with using curved piecing.
I used Amanda Jean's method of Honeycomb quilting as seen on her Crazy Mom Quilts blog. It took two full days at the kitchen table - and a Doris Day marathon on Turner Classic Movies... But I LOVE how it turned out!
I chose my favorite machine sewn binding method, which I found on Aunt Marti's 52 quilts blog. I am addicted to it! The little pop of color is such a nice touch.
Sew as you can see, I did not make this quilt without any help.... I found my inspiration all over the web. Thank you all, fellow quilting bloggers! The online quilting community has given me the inspiration to do what I love - and love what I do. Thanks to all quilting bloggers for sharing their projects, their ideas, and that love of quilting with others.
