My second entry for the Spring 2015 Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side is Twirling Aqua and I'm entering it into the Modern Quilts category. My first entry is Shock Waves in the Home Machine Quilted category. It was the making of this quilt that started my obsession with HSTs :) The versatility of the humble little HST is absolutely amazing! Since making this quilt, I have done several others incorporating these little gems. I think this might be an obsession that lasts for quite some time! This quilt was an absolute blast to make, from cutting those initial 8" squares to quilting to sewing on the binding (machine sewing the binding. . . I'm not a fan of doing hand sewing. LOVE the way it looks, do.not.like doing it). I'll spare you lots of words, I know you are here to see the quilt! :)
And the back, improv pieced with the fabric left over from the front.
You can read more about the making of this quilt here, lessons learned in piecing the flimsy can be found here and and the final post here.
Voting for the various categories begins May 22. Viewer's choice nominations are being taken now! Make sure you head over and nominate your favorite three quilts for the viewer's choice award!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the show! I'm off to visit more blogs and see more awesome eye candy!! :)
Until next time, keep on quilting!
