Polaroid Quilt

A finished quilt.

I’m sharing this finish as part of the Bloggers Quilt Festival. Not because I’m doing a dramatic reveal, but because I’ve been lazy about this one.

It’s thrilling to have this finished. It was a big project but a fun one so it never went through the tedious and/or ugly phase many projects go through. [Actually, the quilting was a bit nuts. I did about 60% of the quilting, hated it and ripped it out. Tried a different style which I liked much much better.]

But. But. I submitted it to Quiltcon in the piecing category. Denied. Submitted it to the Canadian National Juried Show. Denied again.

A bit of time has been a salve and seeing these pictures again renews my excitement about it. No idea what I’ll do with it, but still!

2016 Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Modern Hexies

It’s been a slower than usual for quilt finishes this year but I have one I’m proud of and would like to share here. But first, welcome to my blog! It’s a new-ish blog and a modest one at that, but you’ll find that I work hard to quilt every day. This is where I record progress, triumphs, and sometimes failures.

I am entering my Modern Hexies in the Modern Quilt Category. It’s cunningly called “Modern Hexies.”

It was made for an exhibit of traditional blocks made modern for a display my guild did at another guild’s quilt show. I had a beautiful spectrum of greys leftover from a few previous quilts so I put those to good use.

Original blog post with loads of details is HERE.

The Blogger’s Quilt Festival will run September 19th through September 31st.  Check out AmysCreativeSide to view all the beautiful quilts linked up. There are lots of categories filled with inspiration!

My other entry for this year is “Get to Know Me” in the mini quilt category.

Here are links my quilt entries from last year, my first time ever joining in.

Day 58

Trimming trimming trimming,

trimming all day long,

trimming trimming trimming,

I sing the trimming song!

(sung to the tune of “The Bacon Song”)

160 down, 52 to go. That’s 75% done.
