It’s time for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival over at Amy’s Creative Side…spring edition. This is my Blogger’s Quilt Festival Entry for Spring 2015.
I am entering this quilt in the Hand Quilting category. I finished hand quilting this in the fall of last year, and it’s been snuggled under by various grandchildren over the winter. It’s a couch quilt size.
It’s had a fresh wash and airing for this post :) One of the shots is from the fall finish.
In regards to both piecing and applique, the top row is entirely by hand. The remainder is machine pieced and then the quilt was hand quilted. The back used up some scrap fabrics.
I really enjoyed hand quilting this :
I am not the best piecer, applique expert, nor quilter. I enter this contest not expecting to win the viewer’s choice, but to support the hand quilting category, as us hand quilters were urged to do a few years back via the Celebrate Hand Quilting group.
f you like quilts, here’s how the Festival works:
- May 15 – 21 – Linky’s Open & Nominate for Viewer’s Choice
- May 22 -29 – Vote for favorites in each of the categories
- May 30 – Winners announced
In the past, when I have entered, I have urged readers not to vote for my quilts, because I know there will be better ones there, far more deserving to win. HOWEVER, if you have read this blog for awhile now, you will recall that there are several ways to win prizes …not only due to your talent or your quilt, but due to random drawings. I won a prize last year from a random drawing. I was absolutely blown away…: )
And to any one new visiting from the Festival…welcome and a big thanks to Amy for organizing this each year, and a thank you to the sponsors: )
