Blogger's Quilt Festival 2012

I always just love looking at all the quilts that can be found on the Quilt Festival site. It has been awhile since I participated.

Here is my entry.
I had participated in a batik swap at the local guild. The larger squares are from that swap. The tiny squares were collected from a trip back in 2008 we took with my mom and step dad.  This Alaskan trip took us by bus, train and boat. It was the time frame when the weight restrictions were just starting on luggage. I brought back several fat quarters from different spots in Alaska, fabric can be heavy.  The dark border is really what makes this quilt sparkle for me.  The quilt was inspired from the Fiesta quilt that is on the website.  I didn't have measurements so this is my interpretation not the actual pattern.  Someday, I may make their version.   I used a Sharon Shamber hooped design to quilt it, then meandered between the patterns.

Happy Quilting. Get up and sew.......give it 10 minutes.  Ten minutes CAN change your life.

Just Another Quilter


  1. all those vibrant colours make this quilt stunning

  2. That is my kind of quilt. I love all the bright, happy colors. Muted colors in quilts are pretty to look at too, but leave me bored in the making process. Great job!

  3. Beautiful quilt, so bright and cheerful. How nice to pick up fabrics from along the way on a special trip and make a lasting memory like this one!

  4. So Beautiful! Sometime batiks can look muddy, but your quilt is bright, cheery and full of light. I love it!

  5. Wow! Gorgeous! Quite stunning for not having a pattern!

  7. Beautiful quilt. I love the batiks and the unusual color scheme.
