Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry 1 - Spring 2014

I have decided to enter the blogger's quilt festival.  I loved getting to see all of the beautiful quilts.  So...I'm gonna give it a shot. 

I have chosen to enter my "Blue Discovery" quilt in the large quilt category

 This quilt was such a labor of love.  It was my first large sized quilt.  I used a lattice quilt pattern I had found online, but it was for a baby quilt and I didn't know how to resize correctly or do quilt math.  So needless to say, I went back to the store several times for more of the avocado background fabric. 
But the squares - I saw those fabrics and knew that I had to make something from them.
Blue is my favorite color and I couldn't pass up those combinations. 

I purchased all of the fabrics from JoAnn's.  I machine pieced the quilt and the quilt back.  I had the it quilted by a local long-armer, but I hand stitched the binding (and I love the way it brings the quilt together).

 The quilt measures 87x87.
I love using it, and even made a few pillows to match.

  1. Beautiful colors - it looks perfect with the pillows too.

  2. What beautiful fabrics. Congratulations on making the pattern work. Modifying patterns can be tricky, but the possibilities are endless.

  3. I never would have thought to use the avocado with the blue but it works so well!!

  4. The color combination you used is fabulous! What a wonderful quilt!

  5. Gorgeous! The green really makes those blues pop! And the back is as pretty as the front....and pillows too? It is just all so goood :)
