Bloggers Quilt Festival Fall 2013

Hello there,

The leaves are falling from the trees and that can only mean one thing - it's time for the  Bloggers Quilt Festival.  Kindly organised by Amy from Amy's Creative Side, it is a twice yearly feast for the eyes.

Competition is always stiff because there are just so many talented people out there.



I've decided to make "Enchanted Garden" my entry.   I would like this to be judged in the Favourite Home Machine Quilted Quilt category.


Its quite a big quilt measuring 79" by 86"
I got the star blocks from a Carol Doak book and the rest is my own design.

Machine appliqued flowers and butterflies in the center and borders.
I free motion quilted this on my domestic machine.  all the feathers are freehand and unmarked..


This is a good shot of the whole quilt.  Here I was basting it out in the garden in the summer.








                                                                       Feathers galore!


More feathers in the final border..

So why not head over to Amy's and check out all the beautiful entries.  Of course I would like you to vote for mine if you think it would be a worthy winner.
Thanks for stopping by.
Rhianon.

Ah, Rhiannon - you are the best reason for a quilter to own a thesaurus I've ever seen! I keep running out of words that mean impressive, amazing, and wow. :-)
