During market, Amy's Creative Side hosts the Blogger's Quilt Festival, and so today I'm sharing my last finish - the Zippy quilt.
I love this simple design! Almost all of my quilts begin with charm squares, and I love swapping and collecting charms. So when I decide to create a quilt, odds are good that it will be based around a 5 inch square.
You can find the tutorial over at Moda Bake Shop, in case you'd like to make one yourself.
I made Zippy using Sweetwater's Elementary line. Lots of fun fabrics with letters, numbers, and symbols! I decided to split the colors into rows in my quilt, but you could definitely mix them up and get a scrappy look, like in my WIP above. (psst - that's the same block with a slight variation!)
The blocks are 12.5" unfinished, and you can really make this as big or little as you'd like. Here's a sketch of a larger quilt, 6 x 8 blocks, using solids for the rows.
So that's my entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. There are some amazing quilts up in all the categories, so stop over there and get inspired! Thanks so much to all the sponsors and to Amy for organizing and hosting this fun event! Voting starts November 1!
