Blogger's Quilt Festival

Let's enjoy an online quilt festival - Blogger's Quilt Festival. Thank you Amy for hosting this event.
I enter this quilt in the Original design category.

This is a fusible raw edge applique quilt, with a mosaic effect. The quilt measures 55'', the flower sphere is 42'' in diameter.

A shy beginning...

A promising beginning...

And ready for quilting!

All the fabrics are Kona cotton and it is quilted with Aurifil.





I made this quilt a few months ago, see more pictures and details about how I made it.

Thank you for your visit, enjoy the festival's quilts!

Floral Quilt on Black!

Working with black is very unusual for me. Inspired by a bouquet of daisies and red roses from her garden, my sister Nina convinced me to make a flower sphere in these color. And since we had to use white for the flowers, we had to work with a dark background and she chose black.
She wanted black so it was her job to transfer the design from paper to fabric!
She chose the colors for the flowers and then we made the applique pieces.

This is the smallest design of my pattern, it measures 15''.

The fabric is from the Fossil fern collection, as in this quilt.

Now I have a dilemma! Nina wants black thread for quilting on the black background. I would like white or red or green. What would you choose?
I think I need glasses to quilt black on black!

Small Flower Garden Quilt

Here is one of the two smallest versions of my Secret Flower Garden quilt.
I love the change in my usual color palette (rainbow!!).


The other version has even a more dramatic look!
Have a great weekend,

Interesting back!

I posted so many pictures of this quilt, I just couldn't include more at the time.
While looking for something on my computer, I found these pictures and I remember how excited it was this phase in the process of making this quilt. I think removing the paper templates is so rewarding for any quilter!

without paper templates


And here is how I placed the top on batting. In order to keep the quilt square, I drew  the right angle on batting.

Then I aligned the edges of the quilt with the drawn lines.

I am so anxious to start new quilts and bags, but I still have 4 tops to quilt and 2 bags to finish!

Have a great sewing day,
Geta

Shadow Trapunto Quilt

Here is a Mariner's Compass block on a 12-side shadow trapunto quilt. It measures 17''.

Most of my quilts are free motion quilted, but for this trapunto design I used the walking foot. I couldn't have stitched straight lines without it.


These shadow trapunto quilts are truly two sided. On the front you see shadow trapunto, on the back is visible the trapunto.


See other shadow trapunto quilts here and if you need some mariner's compass ideas, check out my Quilt Inspiration board on Pinterest.

New Raw Edge Applique Quilt

I am making the medium size version of my "Secret Flower Garden" quilt pattern.
I have this Pinhead fabric collection and I couldn't help myself!

I am glad that there is a white fabric in this collection, I used it for the background.

Have a great weekend,
