Entering 'Sew Charming' Into the Blogger's Quilt Festival
My apologies for posting about this quilt again so quickly, but I just couldn't resist entering it into the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. Next time around I should work on being more prepared for the Festival. Maybe try the sneak approach instead of posting about every step of the process along the way?*wink
I'm entering this quilt into the Scrap Quilt category. This particular quilt came together very fast over the course of about a week. I saw a picture of a lovely, springy looking quilt that made me remember a little stack of 9-patch blocks leftover from a previous project.
Looking very scrappy
I've devised several different quilt ideas in my head for these little orphaned quilt blocks through the last several months, but nothing ever 'took' until I got started with this project. Not that I ever really tried very hard of course!
Playing with the 9-patches
My mom generously rescued me with my border fabric dilemma (I don't have a lot of big pieces of fabric or very much bright, young or fun fabrics either) and I was able to gift it to a young friend in plenty of time for her graduation party.
My crazy bright back.
It came out to about 55" square which is a little small for a lap quilt, but I absolutely love the cheerfulness it exudes and I'm pretty sure it has found a good home. Go ahead and click on over to the Spring 2013 Blogger's Quilt Festival for some wonderful eye candy. You know you want to!
