Spring Quilt Festival !!!

Amy's Creative Side


  It's time for the Spring Quilt Festival.  It's been a while since I participated --- but I found this project (and it's binding, ready to attach) last night while cleaning the project space!! (understatement of the year).  The room received a major purge - it needed it.  I'm not sure why -- but us quilters never throw out anything !



I made this quilt with two bali -pops -- whipped the strips together, chopped 'em up and re-sewed into blocks, I tried not to have matching blocks -- I shipped it up the road to a long arm quilter -- and she did a great job!  It is a gift for my favorite boy scout when he finishes his Eagle Scout Project -- which (should be) better be shortly!

You would think on this beautiful sunny morning I could pop out to the deck and drape it on the rail and take a picture -- I disrupted the turkeys at the bird feeders and they were not quiet about it -- and it's 40' and pretty stiff wind -- it is so good to be us.  

Enjoy the rest of the show -- it's always fabulous!

We quilters never throw anything out because one day we might need it...I have sewing tools stashed that I dont even know how to use ..but one day I might need them.

Love your quilt Diva. The batik look of it is special and very very pretty. I love the colour combos too! And I love you took the time to do a rail shot. I really need to find somewhere nice to take my photos....

that's what stashes are for, making a beautiful quilt in a breeze and then let it hatch for a moment or two :) high time for a binding, it's too beautiful to rest in the corner.
