It is that fun time again, for the Blogger's Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy Ellis from Amy's Creative Side. This is such a great opportunity to share tons of great quilts made by quilters around the world. I love seeing all the creativity. So without further ado, here is my submission:
For round one we made slabs in a particular colorway and swapped with each other until we all had all the colors of the rainbow, plus pink. All made from scraps. I took my 14 blocks and made 2 more in aqua for an even 16. I worked to find a pleasing arrangement and bordered it with Kona white.
The back is a two fabrics from a Benartex line called Floralicious that I bought quite some time ago. I was originally going to make curtains from it, but when I need a back for this colorful quilt, I knew this was it.
I quilted it all over with flowers in the style of the backing print. It was such fun! The borders have pebbles in 3 corners with wavy lines representing water, running in between. The 4th corner has clouds and rain drops falling from them. Just a bit more fun for me.
I chose to enter in the Bee category, since all my blocks were made by my Bee mates. I hope you enjoy it. The statistics: Made mostly by me, quilted by me, approximately 58x58.
