BLOGGERS QUILT FESTIVAL 2015

Fall is here, and along with that comes Quilt Market, and along with THAT comes the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side.  This is a virtual Quilt show and always inspires me.

This time around I am entering the quilt I made for my son's wedding this past spring.


I loved making this quilt.  I had a Moda jellyroll of Persimmon and the blocks used every bit of the strip.  I saw the 'anvil' block on a Navajo blanket and made my own version for this quilt.  The arrows added to the western theme plus made a nice border to hang down the edge of the bed.



I personalized it with their initials.


The quilt was a hit and is being used now that the chilly weather is here.
I'm entering this in the Original Design category.
Follow the links to see more one of a kind quilts.  You can vote for the viewers choice in each category too if you like.

Thanks for stopping by
