BLOGGERS QUILT FESTIVAL SPRING 2015

Woot Woot! I got my Plus quilt finished.  Thanks to Debbie who told me the name is actually 'Inside Addition'.  I first saw one in progress over on Instagram by ' No Hats In The House ' and knew I needed to make myself one  : )

My son and I went downtown to take a few photos at an old school, but there was a bouncy castle on the lawn.  We decided across the street at this old church would work just as well so off we went. It just so happens that the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy starts today, so I am linking up and entering this in the Modern Quilt category. Yay!




oooohhh the colour !


This one shows the quilting quite well. Thanks Linda for doing this so quickly for me  : )


.....and just one more (because I love it)

Another beauty Carla!! I love the bright saturation of the shot cottons against the lower value prints. So stunning! I've long admired this pattern on Instagram and you're version is fabulous. Thanks for sharing.

Perfect location....perfect quilt...perfect quilting! How cool are the windows in those doors. Though I have in my mind's eye a picture of you jumping for joy, cloaked in your lovely quilt, jumping high in the air on that bouncy castle!! Now that would be very, very cool, Carla.;)

Very pretty, Carla! I'm all about color in a quilt, and you nailed it with this one, especially in contrast to the church. The location for your photo shoot makes the quilt all that more special. Nicely done!

I love your photography styles (and the quilt!)... I seem to just take the same place and same way when taking photos of my quilts. This has inspired me to be more creative with my photography.

Inspiration! That's what we're all looking for, right?
