My Entry into the Fall Quilt Festival
Have you seen all the gorgeous quilts at the Blogger’s Quilt Festival? Amazing work being displayed out there!
I was torn between two of my recent favorite quilt projects, but ultimately I decided to enter this one into the festival. I made it as part of the coin quilt piece-along earlier this year. I was a little intimidated to machine quilt it myself, so it took me until July to finally finish it.
I planned to use a pattern, but as is typical for me, I cut the coins the wrong size. So I ended up making my own pattern to finish this one, and it turned out just fine. Sometimes I just not good at following directions or staying within the lines! The finished quilt measures 48-inches x 67-inches.
I love Jennifer Paganelli‘s fabrics, you know her, of the Sis Boom fame. I love the colors in the Bell Bottoms collection, which make me feel like lounging on the beach with a book and a cocktail. I haven’t machine quilted very many of my own quilts, so for this one, I wanted to keep it simple with lines in the white sashing. I added a patchwork binding with the scraps.
I was so humbled when Jennifer actually noticed my quilt and gave it a shout out.
