Blogger's Quilt Festival ~ Spring 2014 {ROYGBIV category}

http://amyscreativeside.com/2014/05/16/bloggers-quilt-festival-spring-2014/

Realizing just this morning that each blogger can link up two projects in the Blogger's Quilt Festival, I'm excited to share this second entry.  My other entry, in the large quilt category, can be found here.  Thanks again to Amy for hosting this event each year.

This quilt was a huge challenge for me being that it is improv based, which is something that definitely does not come naturally to me.  It did come together though, and I'm more than happy with the result.  This quilt now graces the wall of my kitchen and it just brightens everything up!





Quilt stats:
Finished size:  27" x 27"
Pattern:  Improv blocks based on crazy piecing technique described in "Quilting Modern" by Katie Pedersen & Jacquie Gering
Fabric:  Colourful scraps from my overflowing bin!  Michael Miller "Old Script" binding.
Quilting:  Spiral quilting using WonderFil Tutti 50wt Egyptian cotton
Festival Category:  ROYGBIV

Such a stunner, Heather! Love all those yummy colours, improve blocks, the spiral quilting and your fantastic choice for the binding. Lucky you don't live closer or I'd be tempted to slip away with this pretty quilt. ;o)
