Blogger's Quilt Festival: Fall 2016 Edition

Can't believe it...it's that time of year again. Amy's Creative Side is again hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival. I missed the Spring edition for some reason so was not going to miss this event. The Bloggers Quilt Festival is always great fun and looking through the entries is very inspiring. So much talent out there, it's actually quite amazing.

I am entering a favourite of mine, loosely called the Baby Quilt, into the Mini Quilt Category



Absolutely loved the fabric and just had to do the Tumbling Block design for this. You can read a bit about the Y-Seams construction HERE, and HERE . Not the easiest to construct but so worth it in the end.


Details of the quilt:

Size: 41in x 53in
Fabric: Main fabric is an Ann Kelle design (Urban Zoologie) for Robert Kaufmann fabrics
Threads used: Gutermann for construction and straight line quilting; Clear Monofilament thread for SID; Aurifil 50/2 for other FMQ designs
Finish: straight line quilting across the cubes with loop design in the feature fabric; continuous heart design in the inner border and more loops in the outer border.
Binding: Left over strips of fabric used which gives the whole quilt a bit of a lift

Head over to Amy's Creative Side to have a bit of a look. There are 11 categories, so plenty to look at.  The linky is open for another 3 days after which voting will start.
