Bloggers’ Quilt Festival

Here is my latest favorite quilt.  It is also the one I am using as a header on my blog currently.

I took it to guild today to get a charm for finishing a large quilt.  I came home and put it on my bed and will sleep under it for the first time tonight.

This quilt was made over the past 3 years.  It was a block of the month at the Allatoona Quilters’ Guild and I finally completed it this summer before our quilt show.  I used many, many black and lime green fabrics and really love this quilt!  If I decide to keep it on the bed, I guess I might have to repaint.

The feathered star was a challenge, especially since I wanted it to be scrappy.  I finally paper pieced it.  I wanted to custom quilt this but realized that it was so busy that my efforts would be wasted so I did an overall swirl and it turned out just fine.  Of course I used lime green thread!

This is my current entry in the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival.  Be sure to check out all the other wonderful quilts.
