Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Spring 2013 – Flowers in the Sun
I was drawn to turquoise fabrics and had managed to grow these retro beauties into a nice little humble stack. A recent acquisition of some pretty black and white prints paired up with them nicely. The Kona green and a green batik, along with the array of oranges and yellows, seem to compliment those turquoise flowers perfectly.
The pieced backing was created using fabrics left over from making the front and includes one of my labels, which I ordered from Spoonflower.
I used Amanda Jean’s method of Honeycomb quilting as seen on her Crazy Mom Quilts blog. It took two full days at the kitchen table – and a Doris Day marathon on Turner Classic Movies… But I LOVE how it turned out!
I chose my favorite machine sewn binding method, which I found on Aunt Marti’s 52 quilts blog. I am addicted to it! The little pop of color is such a nice touch.
Sew as you can see, I did not make this quilt without any help…. I found my inspiration all over the web. Thank you all, fellow quilting bloggers! The online quilting community has given me the inspiration to do what I love – and love what I do. Thanks to all quilting bloggers for sharing their projects, their ideas, and that love of quilting with others.
