Many thanks to Amy for hosting this fabulous opportunity to check out quilts from all over the world, in the comfort of our own homes!
I hummed and hawed about what quilt to enter, and I decided on this one - my Summer Sunset in Vancouver.
This quilt was made as a Guild Challenge and included a couple of firsts for me -
my first New York Beauty blocks, my first attempt at trapunto and my first original quilt designed in EQ6 that I actually made! It was also my first real attempt at free motion quilting a quilt, doing more than just stippling the whole thing! I had a lot of fun playing with different stitches in different areas.
Hey it was a challenge, right?
I also pulled the fabrics from my stash, based more on the thought that these are not colours I normally use, so challenge that as well!
This quilt always makes me feel happy and warm when I look at it, and as we are heading into our wet grey winter a little warmth and sunshine is warranted.
I hope you enjoy the Blogger's Quilt Festival, and take the time to visit as many of the other entries as you can - there are some fabulous quilts out there!
