BLOGGERS QUILT FESTIVAL

It's that time again!  Last year, I discovered this wonderful event and found so many amazing blogs and so much inspiration.  I am so glad I can participate this time.

MOROCCAN TILES

For those of you who have seen this quilt, please bear with me.  I chose this quilt for a couple of reasons.
First, I had this rattling around in my head for over a year. I kept coming back to it, but never had the ambition to do it. Second, if you've known me for any length of time, you know I am a hexagon nut.  What could be better than GIANT hexies? I was on a bit of a scrap kick, so I knew it was time.





 This quilt used over 6 meters of scraps.  I have everything from Christmas to baby fabrics in here.  I love how they all work together. Of course the quilting is just as important as the piecing, and this quilt wouldn't have been what it is without Linda.




Thanks so much for your hard work Linda : )

Anyway, enjoy the festival. You can see more quilts here.
Thank-you Amy for hosting this wonderful line-up of quilts : )

It's lovely but even more so to look at, it's lovely because you were able to put something rattling in your head down to design and creation in such a pretty way. :D

I love these hexagons - there is a pattern called Merry Go Round that your quilt reminds me of in its design.
I love the colors and texture look of your quilt.
Thanks for participating in the blog hop.

I like this quilt a lot! I am trying to get inspired with a complicated looking quilt pattern to make a quilt for my husband, but I really like simple quilts. He likes the ones that look complicated. This might be a good idea.... I'm going to read further in your blog to learn more :) Beautiful quilt!!
