My entry into the Blogger's Quilt Festival (see link at the right) isn't entirely unique, it's just a big accomplishment for me. I purchased a table model quilting machine in February and I've been learning a lot. This quilt represents quite an accomplishment for me as a home quilter. I chose a quilt pattern that would give me plenty of practice. With that said, here is my small quilt entry.
I also just played in some color with a fun pattern Found HERE
I used a recent purchase from Vicki Welch Found HERE I had some Redwood and some other solids from her in my stash. I love it! (It needs the final border, but I got the brainwork done!) The quilting will be sooo much fun!
Now that center looks like this:
I dyed the yellow border to match the yellow in the middle. It's a few shades lighter, but it worked. I had some sheeting from a couple of years ago and I was able to use it up. A 60" square quilt took more fabric than I figured. I tried other fabrics for the final border, but the dyed fabric just kept with the style better than what I had first planned. Just the yellow border took a couple of days to quilt. I'm glad it's finished and I love it! I needed the sunshine!
