Welcome! If you're visiting for the first time please feel free to take a look around... you'll find my sewing adventures along with my documentation for Project Life.
If you're looking for my Quilt Market/Sewing Summit giveaway it is one post down.
This year for Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival I'm showing my Bliss quilt.
I shared a post about the quilt earlier this year. In that post I mentioned getting inspiration to finish up the quilt after sitting for almost a year.
So I thought this time I'd share the story of that inspiration and some new pictures now that I've had it quilted by the super-talented Joanna.
A few months ago I decided to join both the 3x6 and 4x5 Quilt Bees on Flickr. After lots and lots of thinking about it I decided to make a pinwheel block with the Twister Tool for both of my groups. I love this block, but boy does it take a lot of fabric! All but one or two members wanted white as their background, so that made things easy, but also meant that I would need 2 - 3 yards of white.
I knew I should have a couple yards of white left over from the piece I used for the Bliss quilt - perfect! But what if I made all the Bee blocks and then realized I cut something wrong for the Bliss quilt? I had no idea if that piece was Kona or Bella. So I set out to finish the quilt first and then move on to the Bee blocks. And everything worked out perfect!
I'm still sewing away on the binding... just need a little more TV time with hubby to finish up the hand stitching.
