It's Here! - BQF

One of my favorite things, and it falls on a friday (Yeah!) is the Bloggers' Quilt Festival.  Talk about eye candy!!  I have found some of my favorite blogs while viewing all who post on it. And she has wonderful giveaways!  It's like attending a virtual quilt show.  My coverlet is my entry for this year.  This quilt started as a cotton curtain I bought at a yard sale - and it's the back of the quilt.  I loved the design I didn't want to cut it up. So decided to make a medallion quilt for the front.  And it just built from their.  I have that one 18" dresden plate for the center and as I went along I decided what each row would be next.  This turned out to be a quilt as you go with the curtain as the solid back and I added things to it by the sew and flip method.  It's a summer cover for my bed so it has no batting.  The nine patches were from a guild swap we did for a whole year.  It makes a colorful spot in my bedroom.

Want to drown in eye candy?  Click on the banner on top left to be transported to quilt heaven.  And if you want to participate, click on Amy's tab at the top of her page for the BQF to see what's involved.  Enjoy!

I like how the dresden is framed and stands out. the mini nine patches echoing the larger ones in the rim. very clever! and it works well. lovely colourful quilt.
