Blogger's Quilt Festival ~ Fall 2010

Amy's Creative Side - Blogger's Quilt Festival

I really was hoping to have more progress on my apple quilt so that I could share it for the Blogger's Quilt Festival,
but I only have 5 blocks completed ~ so there is not much to share. 
Oh well, I guess it will have to wait until spring.

But I am so happy to share my most recent quilt made from the
Random Reflections pattern found over at Moda Bake Shop. 
This pattern was created by KarrieLyne at Freckled Whimsy.

My version of the random reflections quilt a bit smaller
and I added a pieced border.
I used  Sweetwater's PURE fabric. I absolutely love all of the Sweetwater fabrics and I have made my boys their cozy quilts from the Make Life and Authentic lines.

I have been quilting now for about a year and this is my largest quilt so far. 
I would say it is an oversized lap quilt.
This has been our cozy fall quilt for the past month or so. 
We have been snuggled under it for naps or
 an afternoon of college football watching at home.

The backing fabric is a find from the Hobby Lobby. 
The colors matched perfectly and I created a pieced strip down the back for extra width.

A close-up of the machine quilting, just simple loops all over the quilts.
My favorite method.

The binding is a dark chocolate solid brown also found at Hobby Lobby. 

A BIG thank you to Amy at Amy's Creative Side for continuing to put
the Blogger's Quilt Festival together!
