2009 Blogger's Quilt Festival





Alright, here is my entry for the Quilt Festival! It's an old quilt, but still my favorite:
Front of Quilt at Half Moon Bay
It's my Half Moon Bay quilt. Previous post here. It's been almost 2 years since I made this quilt, and I still love it because of the colors. Many of the quilts I've made since then tend to go along the lines of my wardrobe... max 3 colors at a time. Yes, it's BORING.
Half Moon Bay Quilt Front #2
So thanks to this quilt, it's obvious I like patterns and colors. Probably something I should keep in mind for future quilts!

I think you should look at this quilt before you plan every quilt so you can remind yourself of how wonderfully you work with color.

Lynn,
Are you going to the SCVQA meeting next week? Would love to meet you there if you're going. Thinking of bringing some of my quilts for show/tell. Not sure if I can sneak away...we'll see!

syko kajsa said...

I can see why you love this quilt! It is really cool how the patterned fabrics seem to "move" behind the strict white lines.

Thank you for your comment on my blog!
