Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Fall 2014

I entered two quilts into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival over at Amy’s Creative Side. I entered Contained Chaos in the Mini Quilt category.

The second quilt is the Floral Pop quilt that I entered in the Small Quilt category.

This weekend my quilt guild – the Memphis Area Modern Quilt Guild – had a sew-in at Kelly’s house. Kelly blogs at My Quilt Infatuation and we all had a great time sewing and chatting. I started on a quilt that I plan to give to a deserving family that my church is adopting for the holidays. It uses the So Sophie line by Riley Blake Designs.

I made lots and lots of half-square triangles (HSTs) and got about 1/3 of them trimmed before I left. After dinner I began trimming again.

I love how the browns, mustards, mauves, and blues play so nicely together in this line. I finished all the trimming and had this small bucket of pretty scraps.

I’ve got a plan on putting them together so I hope it will work like it is in my head.

Be sure you head over the the Blogger’s Quilt festival and vote! I’m heading over right now to choose my favorites in the other categories.

  1. Lori, I wish you all the best in the festival–your quilts are beautiful! I love your RB fabrics and am sure the family will love your gift to them as well. My helper is a 4 legged, bad breath barker–but I love having him too.Thank You for stopping by and linking up with “Anything Goes Monday”. I am enjoying be a guest host and meeting new quilty friends. I just started following through B/L and email (so I don’t miss out on your posts) and look forward to more of your posts in the future.

  2. Good luck in the Bloggers Quilt Festival! I wish your quilts does well! I love the fabrics you are working with and the quilt inspector is gorgeous!

    Sounds like a fun way to spend a day~quilting with friends! I know how much time it takes to square up those HST’s! If I hadn’t invested in bloc-loc rulers…I don’t think I would do as many as I do!

  4. Fabulous quilts – good luck with the festival. Looks like you had a very productive sew-in. ๐Ÿ™‚
