Blogger's Quilt Festival presents... LOVE

WELCOME to my corner of the Quilt Festival!!!  I'm so glad you're here.  : )




This is "Love" and it is brought to you by the Beatles, late nights with my sewing machine, chocolate, and a vanilla latte or two.


Love's Story:
I have a long list of "want to do" quilts.

You know how it goes, you see a quilt you love, you're inspired and you add it to your "list".  You can't start it now.  You don't have the fabric you need.  You're in the middle of another project.  You just can't.  Not right now.

This quilt never made my list.  One day it all came together in my head.  The Love fabric, the appliqued circles, the scrappy border and white, lots of white.  I just went for it.  I started cutting, ironing and piecing.  It was liberating!!

Try it.  The very next time you have a quilt idea, just go for it!!

 


Thank you so much for all of your suggestions on the previous "Love" post.  I went with aqua binding and free motion quilting, and I totally changed my mind on the backing fabric.  It was just too busy.  I may use the fabric to make some lounge pants from Amy Butler's book.  An appropriate pairing I think!  : )

  2. I love this quilt! I have the full FQ set of Love on order and am looking forward to getting it! I too have that same list (as long as my arm...) and I am sure you are right... Do things straight away! I always do things for others first (like bee blocks, gifts etc) and then run out of time...

    This has come out beautifully !! LOVE it !!

  12. This turned out perfect! I love the aqua binding, which really frames this quite nicely. Also love the backing. I didn't realize the circles were appliqued, which is a really lovely touch. Love it!
