As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I’m so excited for the 2015 Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side. This is a fun, low stress event that encourages us to take a look back at all our favorite quilts made by our favorite bloggers this past year. Voting for your favorites begins on May 22nd.
For my second entry, I’ll be entering my Laundry Day Mini Quilt. This quilt is my favorite thing I’ve ever made! It combines all of my favorite things: gorgeous fabrics in Cotton + Steel beachy tones, loose, whimsical quilting, and hand embroidery.
I am so excited about this little wall hanging because it has freed me up to go a whole new direction in my quilting. I have lots of ideas about the next several quilts I’d like to make that use similar methods of construction and design. And that’s a thrilling feeling… to have ideas tickling my brain all hours of the day and night.
I hope to release a pattern for this mini quilt sometime soon. It’s a fun recipe that encourages creativity and imagination.
Here’s the background I started with. I love to practice quilting designs on neutral fabric, and then figure out what I can make with them.
And here are the little paper dresses I make with my 7 year old daughter (she’s an origami pro) that inspired this whole quilt design!
Now, I’m heading over to Amy’s Creative Side before bedtime (or before one of my kids wakes up) to check out all the entries.
