Bloggers Quilt Festival Spring 2014


It is time for the Bloggers Quilt Festival superbly organised by Amy from Amy's Creative Side.

Like last year, this year we are allowed two entries and this is my second one.  This is for the Art quilts category.


It's called 'The Vikings Are Coming' and is my own design.  It was inspired by a pewter thimlbe my husband brought back from a business trip to Shetland.
I used Bondaweb to do the main applique then embroidered over it by hand.  Finally I free motion quilted it on my domestic machine.
Here are some photos of the process and some close up details.
















 Before quilting.........








A big thank you to Amy and all the sponsors for their time and generosity for making this all happen.
Voting in the festival begins 24th May 2014.  Be sure to go and vote for your favourites and just enjoy all the entries.  Let the fun begin!

What a wonderful mix of hand embroidery and FMQ. A wonderful quilt, and I really like the decoration on the corners of the border.
