Bloggers’ Quilt Festival Spring 2012

Bloggers’ Quilt Festival Spring 2012

Oops, I almost forgot about this!  Thanks to Candace at The Double Nickel Challenge for sparking my memory!  I’m entering a very special quilt that I was finishing at this time last year for my son’s wedding.

  This is what I wrote about making the quilt after I gave it to them.

When Drew and Abby set their wedding date a year and half ago, I was very excited because that would give me lots of time to make a very special quilt for them!   I did not want to make a king size quilt so opted for a lap size knowing that it was doable.  Abby is so artistic and creative which inspired me to start making  “wonky” or irregular log cabin blocks with all the batik scraps left over from many other quilts.  I sorted the fabrics into color groups to organize for sewing the logs from the same color family.  I should have taken a picture while I was sewing, my whole sewing room was covered with little piles of fabric!!  I wanted to quilt it with back and forth feathers which works best set on point.  And then decided to leave off the corner setting triangles leaving the non traditional shape.   Even though I had all this time to sew, I still was finishing the blocks a couple weeks before the wedding and if my sister, Patty, had not encouraged me to keep at it, it would probably still be unfinished!!  So, I stopped sewing blocks and the quilt became the size out of necessity.  The small blocks that where left ended up in the pieced back.

Enjoy the pics and thanks for looking!
