Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Fall 2012 Quilt 138

It’s time once again for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, sponsored as always, by Amy from Amy’s Creative Side.  I am so so so glad I happened to see Prairie Moon Quilts Tweet about this!  I might have missed it and that would have been TERRIBLE!  I love this festival – so many great quilts to look and and such talent all over!  Please keep in my Quilt 138 when you nominate your favorites!P8140083-001


I knew right away that I wanted to show of my ‘Amazing Technicolor Dream Quilt’.


I made this quilt because of a scrap challenge and it’s one of those pieces that you make because of dream you have in your mind.  I have those dreams often but they don’t always turn out the way I hope they will.  This is one of those dreams that really did turn out!  It was way more work than I thought it was going to be but it was so so so worth it!Amazing Technicolor Dream Scrap Quilt


Approximate Dimensions:  62" x 76"


Amazing Technicolor Dream Quilt - different photo angles

I really love how that the quilt looks totally different depending on which angle you look at it.

Every piece of this quilt came from my scrap bin.  I used the ‘free form quilting method’ and it was machine quilted by Barb Raisbeck of Quilts by Barb.      You can read more about how this quilt came to be HERE


The festival starts today, and runs through November 9. It’s open to anyone who wants to enter, and there will be lots of great prizes.  Be sure to check it out NOW!  Get your post written and show off your quilt!

  2. This is wonderful. I love that you incorporated a bunch of dark/muted/grayed down colors into your rainbow quilt rather than just using all brights. It gives such wonderful depth of color!

  3. Ooooh, just love this! I really need to do something like this with my scraps. I live in the midst of hundreds of acres of fruit orchards. We don't grow fruit here but my folks did and my mom's family were involved in orcharding since early last century. Lots of work. I'm in central washington

  32. So cool to hear about your orchards. I was a city girl but when I was 5 I had a photo taken for the newspaper of me on my mom's shoulder's picking apples at an orchard. When we got married my aunt gave me a copy of the picture and article with a note saying I was destined to have an apple orchard - it was really cool :)
