It’s that time again– twice a year, coinciding with the quilt market events taking place where designers and authors and everyone else involved in the quilt industry get together to introduce their new products, Amy hosts a virtual quilt festival, where anyone wanting to join in the fun can link up to share their work! Follow the link above over to Amy’s blog if you’d like to be seriously inspired.
I had trouble picking which quilt I wanted to share this time around, because I’ve really been branching out in my quilting style lately, and my projects have begun to look more like “me.” But, the one that takes the cake for me is still the first queen sized quilt I made, the one I sleep under every night– my flea market fancy quilt.
This quilt uses one of my favorite techniques of pairing prints with coordinating solids to highlight the colors in the fabric. I tend to make quilts for others and have given away many more than I’ve kept, so making this one for myself was meaningful.
And, using it every day makes me very happy, and makes Simon, my black lab/daschund mix happy too!
