Blogging is new to me if you haven’t noticed. This morning in my bloglovin email one of the blog links caught my eye.Amy’s Creative Side blog is hosting a Fall Bloggers Quilt Festival so I thought what the heck. I’ve decided to enter my red and white medallion quilt if its not too late. This quilt was pieced out of frustration for the lack of quilt patterns available for flying geese and I have to say I am very proud of this quilt. It was the first quilt that I designed myself.
The center medallion was drawn by me then paper pieced. In fact, everything you see is paper pieced with the exception of the flying geese and 3d pinwheels.
The medallion was my first attempt at designing anything quilt related. I then filled in the remaining space with my favorite blocks from history. Of course the 3d flying geese and pinwheels add a very modern touch.
The red fabric is Kona Rich Red and the background is Quilters Choice muslin. If I haven’t stated already, I LOVE this muslin.
The quilting was done by me. Wish me luck. http://www.amyscreativeside.com/bloggers-quilt-festival/
