Blogger’s Quilt Festival

So, you can add me to the list of ladies wishing to be at Quilt Market right now. What I wouldn’t do to get my hands on some Sweetwater Sunkissed…

I’ve decided to do the next best thing and participate in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy. Blog hopping always lifts my spirits and helps take my mind off all of the fun that I am missing….kind of. =)

This was a quilt that I made during the Old Red Barn Quilting along–the very first round–back in the day.  Actually it was just last summer, but it was my first introduction to the virtual quilting world & I have been hooked since.
Being involved in such a thriving quilting community via flickr and other quilty blogs opens up such a resource of inspiration as well as opportunities I wouldn’t have had.
This quilt is made using fabrics from Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden line of fabric.  It is a bright fun quilt–one of the gals over on flickr told me she was a little bit afraid of the bright yellow.  It is a bright color–more “neon” as opposed to a softer “banana” yellow but, I have never been one to shy away from color.
Uh-oh….we lost her…

  • Love it! Its so cheery. Since joining the online quilting world I am addicted to quilt alongs. However I have learnt that time management wise I shouldn't do two at the same time.

  • Great quilt! I love the green in this quilt…it is just perfect! I wish I were at quilt market as well…although I worked at the shoppe today…so I was around fabric 🙂 Thanks for sharing such a happy quilt. BTW – I will be in your neck of the woods next week! Yay!
