And welcome to all of you coming from Amy's blog. Isn't this your favourite event of the "Quilting" year?, together with the trips to the fabric shop and market of course!.
I didn't participate last year so I was eager to finish my quilt this week and start taking some nice pictures, I have had a few tantrums because of the weather not been very helpful, but at least I made it!.
Hoy me vais a perdonar por cambiar el ritmo del blog y escribir primero en ingles. No me puedo resistir al Blogger's Quilt Festival, el año pasado no llegue a ninguna de las dos convocatorias y este año no me lo podia perder. Espero que os guste el quilt que presento y no olvideis de pasaros a ver los maravillosos quilts que se presentan y claro no os olvideis de votar! :) Yo uno de mis votos ya lo tengo reservado, si, si, es para ti, ya sabes tu quien eres!
Enlazo esta entrada al Festival y como no a mi cita de los viernes en Patchwork en casa!
Un besote guapetonas!
And here we are, me and my new quilt, I started the first blocks more that a year ago!, at some stage they were buried in a drawer somewhere but not in my brain!. I decided at some point that this quilt would be nice for the Spring Festival and I took a few blocks from the mentioned drawer, and sew a few more.
It has been a joy to sew this quilt, all the blocks are appliqued and I hand stitched a blanket stitch all over the contour. I have enjoyed playing with colour so much (both fabric and thread). It really has been like gardening, taking care of every little flower in my flower patch!.
|Sorry for the creases, this quilt has been in and out of a bag for the entire week waiting for a sunny day! :( I was afraid of my life to iron it and loose the sunny spell!!|
I have used the same fabric in the border and back, I think that this fabric complement the quilt very nicely. I should have bought the entire bolt!.
I present this quilt to the Applique Category. I hope you like it. The design of this quilt is called "Beautes Florissantes" from the Magic Patch Sampler magazine. It measures 48" X 48". For those in Ireland, the pictures are taken in our brand new playground is St Catherine's Park, county Kildare, we are so happy about this!.
And now, I better let you go so you can visit a few hundred quilts and blogs!
Great thanks for stopping by. and a special thanks to Amy for organising this fabulous event!.
All the best,
