My First Blogger’s Quilt Festival

May 19, 2012

I’ve taken a bit of time off from my dolls to ooh and aah over some amazing quilts today. I’ve been heard to say things like holey moley, and wow, awesome, oh my word, unbelievable, look, even the back is amazing!  It’s the Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side. What a show! If you’re a quilter, artist, or lover of color, you have to check this out. I’ve chosen to share this quilt for my first ever festival entry.

I made it with some friends from the Quilts and Heirlooms team on etsy. They provided most of the blocks and I put it together. The tree house in the center is actually crocheted. The creator of it didn’t think it would work, but when I saw it I knew it had to be part of the quilt, so I got creative with  some hand dyed fabric to frame their beautiful work. I chose to hand quilt it with a garden of morning glories.

This quilt has some traditional blocks and some quite innovative house blocks, exactly what I was hoping for when I chose the house theme. It was like Christmas getting these beautiful blocks in the mail.
