Blogger’s Quilt Festival

Have you heard of Amy‘s Blogger’s Quilt Festival? It’s an online festival for bloggers to feature a quilt they made. It takes place during the semi-annual Quilt Festival, a trade show where wholesale fabric companies and designers gather to sell their wares to quilting industry businesses.

This is the fourth festival, and my fourth time playing along. This time, I wouldΒ like to feature my Halloween quilt.
About six years ago, I made this quilt at the request/demand of my husband Dave. He makes me a better person, pushes me to challenge myself, and cheers for my successes. When he asked me to make a quilt for his favorite holiday, I seized the moment!

He really designed this quilt himself, starting with picking out all the fabrics – black cats on orange, spiderwebs on green for the binding, purple night scene for the backing.
He even picked out the pattern he wanted me to use, chosen from this book.
I know it’s not the most “modern” quilt by some people’s standards, but I love this quilt because it was fun to make, and especially because I made it for my amazing husband.Β He is my rock!
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my quilt!

I also wanted to mention that my shop is a sponsor for the quilt festival!

If you enter your quilt, you will be entered to win something from a selection of prizes. I donated this project bag for a lucky person. I made it to be theΒ perfect size to hold your needle case, scissors, hand sewing (or knitting) supplies, rotary cutter or whatever you travel with. It also has a pocket inside to store your small, loose items like a box of pins or stitch markers.

Now go check out all the other great quilts being featured in blogland!
