Blogger Quilt Festival

Yay! Today starts the Blogger Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy's Creative Side.





I've had a hard time deciding which quilt to show-- and much time wishing I was working on another quilt project! I have missed it. . .




This little quilt was a baby gift for my cousin's baby. It was a fun quilt to put together. And I learned the benefits of adding a little bit of white fabric-- it can make a quilt pop!



And since I have tons of scraps from this quilt, let's do a giveaway, shall we?

To recieve a LARGE number of scraps from Keri Beyer's Rocket Scientist line, leave me one comment on this post with a way to contact you, should you win.



. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Also, don't forget to visit here to see the current quilts on 'So You Think You Can Quilt.'
Voting continues for another day!

That quilt is great! I would like to make something scrappy like that for my boys. Girl stuff is easy, but I find it hard to be original for my boys!

That's an adorable quilt! I'm loving the variety that people are posting for the blogger's quilt fest!

Another giveaway?! You are so generous. And I love that quilt. I just starred it in my reader, because I think it would be a perfect design for a charity quilt - so flexible, but still awesome looking! Thanks for the inspiration!

Nice quilt! And you are right - those white lines really make the fabrics pop and adds some extra interest. I just might borrow that idea for a future project ;-)

piecemealquilts said...

Great quilt! It's amazing what a difference those little strips of white make. Genius!

connie said...

OK, I love, love, love this. I would have commented even without the giveaway!!! However the fabric is wonderful. Thanks for sharing!!!

Shona said...

Love the rockets. They are a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing!

Julie in WA said...

Those little strips of white make the quilt sparkle. I always like baby quilts that are not as much baby as works of art for those new baby brain cells!

Jessica said...

Too cute!

Joy said...

Cute quilt...would love to win!

V Mom said...

Love the quilt and love the fabrics! My oldest loves all things space, so I would love to use those scraps in a quilt for him!

Leslie said...

this is amazing...i love the variety and the pop of the white makes all the difference.

annettesquilts said...

Wow! You are so right. That white makes such a difference. It seems that so many quilts that are binding to binding busy fabrics just melt together. The white gives the prints definition.

chorlbeck1 said...

Hi, I will go you one better. If I win, I will send you a "really" big bag of scraps from a scrap quilt I just finished. I don't want to look at these scraps anymore! Or if you can't use them, do you know someone who would. I will mail them. ThanksChris at chorlbeck1@comcast.net

How beautiful! I love strippy quilts and have been inspired by quilters' blogs to keep my scraps- much to my husband's dismay ;)

Have a great festival experience.
