Bloggers Quilt Festival

Welcome All Quilt Bloggers!


Amy at Park City Girl hosted a Quilt Festival in the Spring. Lots of prizes and lots and lots of beautiful quilts by bloggers to go and see. It took me quite some time last year to see them all. So many talented people here in blog land. Be sure and click on the link to go to her site and enter your quilt.


Here is my quilt for this Festival. I had designed this on my quilt on EQ5. I had a friend at the time that was having a baby and I wanted to make a quilt. She in turn had a very close friend that was having a baby about the same time. I was designing a quilt for my friend on the program and came up with two different quilts. I couldn't decide which quilt I wanted to make so I printed out both quilts and went to the quilt store. These fabrics had just come out. I realized that this fabric was perfect for the quilts. I ended up getting enough fabric for both quilts. I did paper piece the quilts and was really pleased with the way they turned out. I think all I did was stitch in the ditch because at the time I was not into Free Motion Quilting. I am sure that I made these in the spring of 2006.
Thanks for coming to my blog and seeing my Quilts. I hope you enjoy visiting all the other blogs. Come back soon!

Nice job !
Don't you just love using EQ5......I used to spend hours coloring in graph paper. Now I just color the quilts with my mouse ! (Truth told, I still spend hours, but I have lots more colorations to show for the time !)

Susan said...

Beautiful! I'm afraid to get EQ...I spend too much time on the computer now as it is!

Quiltluver said...

Beautiful quilts. I zoomed in on the picture and I love the blue accent color. It's pretty neat that you designed them yourself. I too would love to get EQ, but I'm afraid I wouldn't spend any time quilting if I did. Karen

Ivory Spring said...

Thank you for your kind words on my log cabin quilt. The magazine will be out in Jan 2010. In case you are interested in the fabrics, they are from the "Sweet Pea" collection by RJR - which is due out by the end of the year, I think.

I hope you had a good weekend! :)
