Hi again! This is my second entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival which started today and runs through May 29.Amy's Creative Side for hosting the festival and giving us all the opportunity to see the lovely projects everyone has been working on this past year. The quilts are amazing.
My entry is a quilt from a pattern found in Quilt Sampler (Spring/Summer 2011), called Turn by Turn. I started it in February 2013, sent it off to be quilted in March, and didn't finish it until November 2014. What can I say--I hate to do bindings and I'm not good at finishing. This is during the binding process, but shows the richness of the Kaffe fabrics better than the other photographs.
The backing is also a Kaffe, a print called Bekah. It is one of my favorites for backing. Really a gorgeous fabric. I was a little sad to use up my last piece of the print.
The binding is a fabric by Philip Jacobs called Chard, in blue, which has enough teal and pink to pull it all together.
And just because this photo was in with the others, and because Bryna was so sweet at this age (and at that moment), here's the finished French General. I'm guessing I didn't post a photo because it was to be a gift.
Both Turn by Turn and the French General were Christmas presents this past Christmas. I was sorry to see them go!
Turn by Turn is entered in the Large Quilt Category of the Blogger's Quilt Festival. It measures roughly 110 x 120 plus the outside border, so maybe 120 x 130? (I didn't measure it before it was given away) I pieced it, and it was quilted wonderfully by Yvette of Yvette's Custom Quilting.
Be sure to check out all the other quilts in the Large Category at the Blogger's Quilt Festival. And thanks for stopping by!
