Blogger Quilt Festival - Scrappy Quilt


I am participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival that is being held by Amy's Creative Side for the first time.  The first category that I am entering into is the Scrappy Quilt category.  The quilt is called "Spinning Love."  This quilt was finished in the middle of the year, and given as a belated wedding gift to a great couple that my husband and I are good friends with.

I started out with a group of fabrics mixing it up to create a scrappy look in the 4-patches, but kept it similar with the pinwheels.  The pattern I used is a Bonnie Hunter pattern entitled Patches and Pinwheels.  I believe she is the Queen of Scrap quilting.


I did the quilting myself on this quilt with a simple heart design turned clover design on a long arm, and I think it turned out pretty well.  I'm working on trying to perfect the drape on a chair, but it did not work out very well.  I'll get it right next time.

If you are checking me out for the first time welcome.  The Blogger's Quilt Festival is running between September 18 thru September 30.  Thanks for stopping by!
