Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013 - Scrappy Quilts Entry

Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013

Scrappy Quilts Entry

I have entered this quilt into Amy's Creative Side Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013:


I had some leftover Amy Butler 'Lark' strips just hanging out in my closet that were begging to be used!  I came up with this quilt in my head and decided that these strips would be perfect for this quilt.  Or did I come up with this quilt to use the strips?  Not sure, but either way, I love the results!  (That doesn't always happen, BTW.)  I didn't write anything down and didn't take pictures while making it.  : (  Since it is in my head, I am certain I could make it again, though.  Really need to write it down!  I practiced my free motion quilting on my domestic sewing machine and tried doing a few things I hadn't really tried before.  Two blocks that didn't turn out quite right were put in with the backing.

I haven't entered this before and thought I'd jump in!  Here is the link:  Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013  Looking forward to seeing all the inspiring and creative quilts!


  1. Welcome to the fest! It's a great way to meet new blog friends and catch all the inspiration,,,

    Beautiful job on this one - it feels very modern French Country to me.

  2. Thank you! I could get lost looking at all the gorgeous quilts!

  3. Pretty quilt. I love how it works out from a thought to a quilt!

  4. I like the texture the quilting produced. Looks very striking.

  5. What a great quilt, It's wonderful to see those beautuful Amy Butler fabrics. The criss cross white lines are so effective. I always think I should write down details as I make quilts too, but I never do, too busy sewing I guess :)
