Blogger’s Quilt Festival
Posted October 31, 2010on:
Once again, Amy is hosting the quilt show in conjunction with Market and Festival in Houston.
I’m sharing a quilt that I showed on my blog just a couple weeks ago. This is my “Whole Lotta” quilt.
I started this quilt probably about 6 years ago. I had seen it in Kaffe Fasset’s Passionate Patchwork book. It is his “Suzani” pattern. Originally, this was to be a baby quilt for an acquaintance. I wasn’t very happy with the way the top was going together…the way the circles were set into the quilt is not the way I would do it today…now that I know more…and, they didn’t lay flat. In fact, most of the circles were about a “C” cup!
This year, I learned to machine quilt on my home machine. My guild has a UFO challenge and this was one of the UFOs on my list. When I sandwiched it, I had to pin the heck out of the circles. A number of hours later, as well as something like 8 or more spools of orange, gold, and blue thread, I have a quilt I just love. Here are a couple close-ups of the quilting:
Thanks for stopping by! If you are looking for more of the quilts in the Festival, head over to:
