There is a Bloggers Quilt Festival on where you post about a quilt that has recently been finished, and link up to the site. I thought I would enter this quilt, which I called ‘Springtime.’
This quilt is one that I made up completely on my own, and it is made in bright clear colours which make it oh-so-up-to-date with the modern quilting trend!
It has a special place in my heart because it started out an ugly duckling
got chopped up into a new variation but was still not liked
until I hit on the idea of (chopping once again) and adding white strips to it.
It was originally a layer cake of Woodland Bloom by Moda, but also has other bright spring-like fabrics thrown in.
The finishing touch was the quilting I did on my long-arm- each strip of the quilt-top had writing on it and included names of family members and place names of special meaning.
I gave this quilt to my aunt and uncle and they and their family all enjoyed hunting for their name!
