Online Quilt Festival

April 17, 2009

I am participating in the first online Bloggers Quilt Festival that is being put on by "City Girl".

Below is the quilt that I am the most proud of. This quilt is called "Regal" and was finished at the end of 2008.

It is an original design. The quilt measures to approximately 40"x 40".

The fabrics are batiks. The orange fabric is hand appliqued onto the blue background fabric. It is hand quilted.

It is indeed beautiful! I can appreciate all the work that went into it!
My verification word is 'sound'. That's the first time I have ever had a word that makes sense. I think your quilt is speaking to me!

Fantastic quilt! I'm inspired.
PS - I completely understand about the computer crashing, mine did it a few weeks ago. NOT happy!

how pretty!

Nadine said...

Beautiful design! I really like the pattern; did you cut it out paper snowflake style? Thanks for sharing!

Quilt+Bitch said...

Hi Nadine,

Yes it is a paper cut work or snow flake pattern. You fold the fabric into eighths and then cut out the design.

Thanks for your comment!

The quilt is beautiful. Today is the University of Florida Orange and Blue game and this would fit right in except it is much to beautiful for a football game.

Wow! Beautiful design and hand quilted! I am so impressed. (My hand quilting is still seriously under-developed and therefore lacking in any appeal whatsoever)!
