Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2015

Could not resist...another entry to the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted over at Amy's Creative Side

I am entering one of my pillows (stitched for the 2015 FMQ challenge over at Quiltshopgal) into the Home Machine Quilted Category.

Absolutely love this pillow. The design was inspired by Christina Cameli.

This is stitched with a variegated 50/2 Aurifil thread, the colour changing from a light beige through to a deep rusty-yellow tone. This looks super effective on the olive green background and  as one reader commented looks very Australian...this was unintended, however looking at it again, I agree...there is something very Australian about it. Must be the colours of the thread on the background... reminds me of eucalyptus leaves, even though they do not look anything like it.

You can find the main Festival post HERE.

The Linky is open now, going through to the 21 May. From 22-29 May you can vote for your favourite categories and on May 30 the winners will be announced. Lots and lots of quilty goodness!

  3. Love the quilting you did on this and love that you did a different design on each side! The variegated thread was a very good choice and adds a very special touch to the stitched design.
