Blogger's Quilt Festival

Amy's Creative Side - Blogger's Quilt Festival


I have decided to submit a quilt for the 4th annual Blogger's Quilt Festival. I am submitting an older quilt that I made for my Mom which I called Measurements Quilt.  I used Recess by Moda because once I saw that fabric I thought it just screamed my Mom. The tape measure fabric is just so perfect.

I wanted to make a quilt for my Mom since she had made me sooo many things over my lifetime. Countless clothes, not to mention my wedding dress, Halloween costumes, do you remember those clothes made out of knit that were called " Units" ???? I just loved those outfits and she made me tons of them in all different colors.  Anywho I decided to just make some improv blocks since I thought that would be easier and faster. I just love this line from Moda especially since I am not usually a fan of Moda's fabrics.

Here is the back of the quilt. Isn't Gweniveve so small? She was so excited to sit on the quilt for a picture with Grandma's quilt.

so shy


I embroidered a label for the back of the quilt and free motioned in wavy lines.

We have used this quilt a couple of times when we have gone to see my parents and the colors are still amazing after many washes. It makes me think I need to make another quilt with these fabrics since I still have a couple of charm packs.

Don't forget to see all the other quilts that are entered. You can check them out on Amy's site or in the flickr pool.

That's a great quilt. Great fabrics and pattern. Once I felt I had somewhat mastered the quilt making techniques I made my Mum a quilt.
