I have been at a real quilt show today (more of that later) but for now it's time to enter the virtual one that is the Blogger's Quilt Festival. If you have not visited this blog before, welcome, and thank you for dropping in - I quilt here in Scotland and have enjoyed the last few Festivals, there is always so much to see, so much inspiration. I am only entering one quilt and have deliberated over which category to enter it in as it seems to fit quite a few. So I have decided upon Original Design.
I call this Modern Sampler - it's going to be the project that my classes will follow from August and I look forward to seeing all the different versions of it that will be made. This one measures 54" x 73" and I designed it to be constructed and quilted in three separate panels & then joined together using QAYG techniques. This avoids us all having to fight with our domestic machines and frankly makes the actual quilting so much easier and even enjoyable - shocker!! There are basically four different blocks each repeated, with a tweak or two, three times. I am hoping lots of ladies will use up their stash fabrics and delight in the different effects that can be achieved in the same block.
Anyway, I hope you like it, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the show.
