Last year I entered my quilt, The Courting Quilt in the Blogger's Quilter's Festival at Amy's Creative Side.
I hadn't planned to add a quilt this year since I didn't have one finished that I felt fit any of the categories, but this morning I had a light bulb moment--Simply Red in Blue! I just finished this quilt a couple days ago and it will be going to it's new (temporary) home at the quilt shop soon.
|I am entering Simply Red in Blue in the Applique category.The pattern is from the book Simply Red by Kathy Schmitz.|
The quilt measures 54" x 65"
|I used lots of shades of blues from various designers including Primitive Gatherings, Kansas Troubles, etc., and a 2 yard pack of Cherrywood.|
|All of the backgrounds are from Primitive Gatherings by Moda.|
The quilting was done using Aurifil thread in neutral 2310 and navy 2745.
My brain doesn't allow my to do feathers, so I opted for figure 8's instead.
|The finished appliques remind me of the Yorktowne pattern of Pfaltzgraff pottery.|
|I think this is going to be one of my favorite quilts.|
The voting and such starts next week--it's fun to see what everyone else is up to.
