blogger's quilt festival




This is my entry into the quilt festival. I love this quilt because it's the first I've ever completed from start to finish. It was also one of the only quilts I didn't use any precuts on! I also stippled this quilt, which wasn't as horrible as everyone makes it out to be, it's now my go to style for quilting.

It's a small quilt, a bit larger than a crib size and it's backed in one of my favorite fabrics ever, apples & pears by alexander henry. It may not match but it's certainly fun!

  4. I love your fabric selection. I am kind of into monochromatic fabric collections these days. I have one very similar to yours sitting at my machine waiting for me to decide how to cut it up. Your quilt is very pretty. Good job.

  5. Pretty cute orange and pink. And the back DOES match - quite an interesting contrast.

  8. It's beautiful! I love that AH fruit fabric too--I have a yard-plus that I am hoarding until I can decide what to use it for.
