Blogger's Quilt Festival!

I love the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side! It's a fun show and tell of beautiful quilts. Plus I usually find lots of new blogs I want to read, and quilts I want to make!

For this time around, I decided to share my Madrona Road challenge quilt in the quilt photographer category. I am by no means a great photographer, but the colors in the quilt were really set off by the sky in these pictures. 


I am still so in love with this quilt! I made it thinking I would give it to my niece, but I already started her another one :)


This quilt was made with Oh, Fransson's Sparkle Punch pattern, although I scaled the blocks down a little. I used Madrona Road prints, as well as some Kona, Cotton Couture, and Grunge. It measures about 40" x 50". I stitched it with Aurifil thread in light gray, and quilted it myself with straight lines.


For the back I used In Color Order's Giant Vintage Star pattern.


Photographing it in the Kansas wind was a challenge - here's one of the blooper shots!



This was a fun quilt to make. Hope you enjoyed it too!

Your quilt is beautiful, I love the blooper shot. Photographing in the wind is a struggle, I almost lost a quilt into the bay last week, haha.

It looks like a fun quilt to make, but I think it also looks fun taking photos of it in the wind! What a challenge! That first one came out so cool.
