Bloggers' Quilt Festival

Amy's Creative Side




I've seen this festival around, but never managed to catch it.  Got it this year!

I'm entering my Lou-Lou-Thi Grid quilt. 

I made this quilt for two reasons.

1.  I LOVE AMH fabric. 
2.  I wanted a sashed patchwork quilt.   But I didn't want to use all those really long sashing strips, that always curve on the sewing machine.  So I used short pieces, laid it all out on the floor.  (Really wish I had a design wall)  Each sashing strip was then 6" or under.

I learned that I'm still not that good at sashing. 

I didn't plan too far ahead.  I thought I'd use it on the couch.  But, it was too big for the couch, too small for the king bed.  I don't care, it's on the bed anyway. It looks very cheerful on the bed.  I hope youall agree.

It looks beautiful - much like a wall of Polaroids taken of flowers...

Your quilt is so beautiful. All that sashing would have driven me mad, but you've done a lovely job. The framing effect is wonderful.

Who doesn`t love AMH?? I love the simplicity of the design which really showcases the fabric, which is what it`s all about!

I love the design, how each fabric has it's own square all to itself. Very beautiful!
