BLOGGER'S QUILT FESTIVAL

Hello to all of you visiting the Bloggers Quilt Festival, organized by Amy of Amy's Creative Side.
 This time around, I am featuring my "Bird on a Wire" quilt inspired by Quilt Mania magazine.
(for those of you who have seen this, please bear with me)


I hand pieced some of the quilts, then appliqued them down. The rest of the quilt was machine pieced and machine quilted by me.





This was my first attempt at quilting with wavy lines,  and I am happy with the result.


I enjoyed every minute while working on this quilt. It hangs in the nursery that I put together for my grand girls.  It measure 37" square. I think this would best fit into the baby quilt category, or the wall hanging category.

There is a button at the top right of the side bar. To see all the quilts, click on the button and it will take you there. Enjoy the rest of the festival, and thanks for stopping by : )

You used so many different techniques in this quilt- hexies, appliqué, those glorious tumblers. I love it. It really is a work of art . Love those pops of colours too.
