It's that (semi-annual) time of year again - Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival, hurray! As some of you remember from my last post, I was actually going to share the new flannel quilt that I made using the fabrics Valori Wells sent me from her Bliss fabric line, but for a reason I cannot discuss at this time I'm not able to show it right now. So, instead, I'm going to show you a quilt you may have already seen, but I'm quite proud of it. Without further ado I give you Pinwheels in the House!
This quilt was actually my first pattern/tutorial for Moda Bake Shop and I still love it. If you're interested, you can find my project here on MBS. I came up with the idea for this pattern because of my love of mixing different block styles together...I also seem to love half-square triangles, even though they drive me completely batty sometimes!
Right now this quilt is sitting and waiting for a little baby girl to be born; we seem to have only little boys in our life right now and this quilt would most definitely be better suited to a little gal! For this project I used Verna by Kate Spain for Moda, and it finishes at 35" square. I have another project in the works right now for MBS, and can't wait to share it with you all!
Be sure to visit Amy's blog and check out all of the other super-awesome quilts that have been entered into the festival. I'm going to plead with everyone here to please leave a comment if you see a post with a quilt you like - so many times people put their heart and soul into making something, only to be a little disappointed when no one seems to like it. I know that none of us create the things we do just to get recognition from others, but it sure feels good when we do - I know my heart sings a little every time someone tells me that I did a good job or that they like something I've made. Now I'm not saying you need to comment on every single quilt (that might be a bit of overkill, hah!) but if you see something you really like, show it a little love! Sorry if that sounded preachy in any way, I just want everyone to be happy that they participated!
Note: I had to remove the giveaway for now because I didn't realize that we were prohibited from offering giveaways in our festival post this time around. I'll post the giveaway as a post by itself shortly.
