Ah….I love the Blogger’s Quilt Festival @ Amy’s Creative Side. I get to look at, literally, hundreds of beautiful quilts in my pajamas. This time around, I have two quilts to share.
This first one I call Lunar Eclipse. I love these type of quilts made from blocks of color with white sashing in between. They really focus on the color and pattern of the fabrics, but for me, they are a hassle to make. Somehow, my sashings don’t always look even, but I’m going to admit I did a good job on this one.
This shot was taken by my front window. Yes, my walls really are that color. It’s technically Imperial Yellow, although somedays it looks like the outside of a school bus.
The second quilt is a grey and white houndstooth, bound in aqua with a polka-dot backing. I’ve previously blogged about
it, but I LOVE this pattern from V & Co.
so much that I wanted to share it again.
This is the first quilt I’ve ever used solids on. Seriously. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever even used a solid fabric in anything else I’ve done (besides a little white here and there). I’m really of the one-can-never-have-too-many-prints mindset. But now, I’m looking at solids in a whole new light and can’t wait to make another of these quilts to keep for myself 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my quilts. Grab yourself snack, get comfortable and explore the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. You’ll be amazed at what people can do with a bit of fabric!
