I LOVE this time of year!
All the designers are coming up with new fabrics and patterns to release at Market AND there is the BLOGGERS QUILT FESTIVAL run by Amy over at Amys Creative Side!!! YAY!!!
I couldn't decide on which quilt to blog about, I have a few favs at the moment that i just love and have a story to go with them but I have decided to tell you about my Parisville Quilt.
I am absolutely hopeless about coming up with names for my quilts. They usually get named after either the pattern I use or the fabric I've chosen. How's that for exciting! ;)
Anyway, This fabric range so many amazing fabrics that each could be a feature fabric in any quilt. How do you showcase a range like that???
I decided to give "Sweet Garden" by Carolina Patchworks a go.
Not knowing how it was going to look, I thought I'd try the first block out to see what it would look like. You know those nerves you get when you first start cutting into your fat quarters? Argh!
Luckily, I loved that HUGE first block. so then I cut more fabric and kept sewing.
Bit by bit.
I know this is a "busy" quilt but I love it! I love the Purple sashings,
I love the faces peeking through, I love the size... Everything!
I would definitely recommend the pattern to anyway that wanted to give it a go. It was so much fun to make!
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you are enjoying all of the gorgeous quilts through the festival!
