Bloggers' Quilt Festival

I had serious doubts of joining in Amy's Bloggers' Quilt Festival this year...I wanted to show my postage stamp quilt, but I just haven't had the oomph to get it finished...well, I did it!! 

Just finished the binding 10 minutes ago, so it needs washed and dried yet, but no time like the present to blog about it!


This quilt marks the first time I have used a jelly roll!  I used 1974 designed by Urban Chiks for Moda.  I was lucky enough to find the textured teal solid that was released with the line at my local quilt shop!!



Here is a detal shot of the quilting design.  Simple, but really fun I think.  I debated adding a border...and still think it might have been a good idea...but I was ready to have this one done.  I do like the dotty fabric for binding though...

Ok, Happy Halloween, we are off to a birthday/costume party for my nephews.

Don't forget to stop by Amy's blog for many many more wonderful quilts, their makers and their stories!  Thanks Amy for organizing this festival and giving me the extra incentive to finish this quilt!

  2. Jenny, I love your quilt. The teal as the background fabric is outstanding.. I don't think it needs a border, perfect the way it is.

  8. I love the solid color you used with this. And that quilting is really cool. I don't know if I would be ready to tie that many loose threads, but what a great effect!
