bloggers quilt festival

 It's a quilt reveal...but not the one you were expecting right?
Remember back in spring
when everything went a bit experimental.
I painted a picture for the first Le Challenge
and then I thought I could make a quilt.
Well she's hot of the press
just in time for the festival.
 As per usual I English paper pieced it,
it's a fun way to quilt
I just cant imagine machining this quilt this accurately.
I have named this mini 
quilting by numbers
as I really did number all the triangles.
*forgive the bad!

I love how it matches my summer of love quilt.
*in fact come to think of it I may have used it as an inspiration....duh!!
 I also love the pale pink on turquoise combo, 
especially with a dark border.
 I'm entering this in the wall hanging category.
There are plenty more beauties to feast your eyes on
 so go take a look!


  1. This is a great quilt! Can't believe you EPP'd the whole thing! Love the stitching on it too. Isn't it funny how some of our quilts end up 'matching'. I guess it's because we work on one and like an idea so then we expand on it or take off with similar colors.:)

  2. Hi Clare, I love how your quilt turned out. The plain fabrics make it so eye catching and the round quilting softens it beautifully....stunning work. Good Luck
