Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2013

It's that time of year again. Time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival sponsored by Amy's Creative Side. For those of us who don't get to attend Quilt Market, this is such a wonderful way to see all the amazing quilting going on out there. Be sure to hop over to Amy's site and browse through all the linkys.

I had the hardest time deciding what to enter. Lots of things are in the works but not many finished projects. Looking back over this past year I realized one of my favorites was the quilt I made from a layer cake of Moda's Tradewinds fabric line. A very summery quilt that I'm looking forward to using again this summer.

I had never used a precut bundle of fabric before but this line just spoke to me. Fresh, eclectic, a touch of the exotic. I just love the little tea cups. Makes the perfect print for a backyard garden tea party. I bought more tea cup fabric to make napkins. Just need to sew them up.

I used my Cascade pattern for the quilt and made a table runner with the leftovers. The pattern tells you how to use your scraps as you piece the top so the extra blocks are done at the same time. Love the runner just as much as the quilt itself. Very scrappy, yet coordinates well with the quilt. And it looks perfect with my strawberry dishes don't you think?

Designed, made and quilted by me.
