Well, that was fun...I wasn't sure if I had totally messed something up with my Blogger Account, but hopefully all is fixed and the fun can begin!
What fun, you ask????
Why Amy's Bloggers' Quilt Festival of course :)
That clever Amy holds her festival twice a year....to coincide with Quilt Market....
It is easy to join in on the fun! So be sure to head over to Amy's!
Here is my entry for the Spring Festival...
This is a pattern by Kathy Doughty from Material Obsession 2. It is a pickle-dish, one of my very favorite designs.
I think I love this so much because it combines all of my favorite elements. The use of light and dark, and high contrast fabrics. Inherent in the design is lots of movement with these long spokes that swirl around and are connected by four large squares. Pickle-dish just screams vintage so I was able to play with lots of vintage looking fabrics....including this fabulous Betty Dear for the background...
Along with the bright bright fabrics, adding black to a quilt is always key for me. The large black and white eyes with the smaller black and white binding gave this quilt an added punch!
Two sides have a piano key border. And I hand quilted it with red and black perle cotton.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the Festival!
