Blogger's Quilt Festival


I am so excited that Amy has once again hosted the Blogger's Quilt Festival. In fact it was Amy that got me into blogging! Participation in the BQF required a blog, so I took a deep breath and took the plunge. It was an amazing experience, one I know everyone will enjoy.

This little quilt was an original creation for Doll Quilt Swap 7 over on Flickr. This was a secret swap, so I only had hints and pictures of what my partner would like to receive. She really likes bold colors and art quilting.

I really worked outside my comfort zone on this one, and to my surprise I really enjoyed the process. My biggest stretch was to try trapunto using a technique I read about in a quilting magazine. It involved soluble thread and cutting backing... <<<<STRESS>>>>>! I am happy with the way it turned out. Happy Stitching!
