Blogger's Quilt Festival


AmysCreativeSide.com
I've never entered, always thought, ohhh I'd love to put this quilt up but not had the guts to do so, this time I'm just going to bite the bullet and enter :)

I'm entering in the Scrap Quilt category and I'm putting the Scrap Vomit up :)

The quilt entails sewing 1225 2.5" squares together, all different fabrics, some truly yukky and some gorgeous ones, a totally scrappy quilt, it's based on a tutorial by I'm a Ginger Monkey

Just fits the wall lol....#scrapvomit back

It finishes at 70" square and was machine pieced (aurifil 50wt) and machine quilted by myself using Superior Poly thread.  I used fleece for batting and a cotton sheet for the back, lime sketch for the binding.

Please take a few minutes to check out the other fab quilt entries and don't forget to vote from 24th.
