Blogger's Quilt Festival

It was hard to choose a favorite quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival, but I finally chose my jelly roll sampler quilt.

This was a quiltalong offered by Moose on the Porch. Most of the black and green fabrics were in my stash. I didn't use a jelly roll but cut strips from fat quarters and yardage. I used my leftovers for the quilt back.



My quilt model tested the quilt and gave it her seal of approval.


I machine quilted with straight lines and finished with a scrappy binding. The very best thing about this quilt is my son asked if he could have it and I gave it to him for his 23rd birthday.Check out all the beautiful quilts at Blogger's Quilt Festival

I love the color combination. I'm actually doing one of my own design with almost the same (I added white). I have looked that quilt along. It's nice to see how different people interpret it!

The quilt is of course awesome, but the fact that your son asked for it should have you busting your buttons.

That's a bright and pretty quilt but then you add the model and it's just gorgeous. I guess she's just one of those beauties that can make everything brighter. :)
