Here’s my second entry for the 2016 Blogger’s Quilt Festival in the Modern Quilt category over at Amy’s Creative Side.
It’s a modern plus quilt I made this summer and gifted to a very special young woman. I’ll be posting more about it and the story behind it soon. In the meantime, here’s a couple of pics so I can participate in the festival.
You can see my first entry, the Little House Quilt, here.
I encourage you to stop over at Amy’s blog next week to vote for your favorites. You can get there by clicking here and scrolling down past the list of prizes to see the boxes with the entry categories to click on. This quilt can be directly seen here on the modern category page.
Most of the fabric for the top comes from one designer’s collection. The greens and purples were added to give it that pop of color that was needed.
Made by me (Karen) and quilted on a computerized longarm with some help from the shop’s staff.

Are you ready?
I’ll be posting the rest of the loot from my MN Shop Hop later this week so be prepared; it is not for the faint of wallet. You’ll all be in for a treat too when Tu-Na Helper (my husband) guest writes a post on Sunday about his impressions regarding the MN Quilt Shop Hop trip. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then you have some catching up to do. Catch the links on this post and then here, here and here and you’ll be all set for later this week.
What I Learned Today:
- Write down fabric names/manufacturers so I don’t have to look for them.
- Keep track of all quilt information in one place.
Do you keep track of your quilt information in a notebook or on the computer?
