Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2011

Hello Everyone,

I just finished my first day at Quilt Market and I do have some great photos!  But you will have to wait until the next post to see them as I wanted to do my Blogger's Quilt Festival post... Sorry!  But thank you to Amy for hosting this great event again.  You can see more quilts from other people here.

I hope you are not disappointed though because I chose a quilt that I just recently had shown.  For those of you who are new to my blog hopefully it will be a treat!  


This is the quilt that I call "I Am Not Afraid of Color".  It was born out of my love of Kaffe Fassett fabrics and Judy Niemeyer patterns.  This pattern is called Summer Solstice. I love to combine the two!


I had posted about it previously here and here and here.  I created it at a recent Judy Niemeyer retreat that I had been on.  I know it is not quite a quilt and still a top.   But I promise, it will become a quilt soon.  I just need to get back from Quilt Market, although I am having a great time!



So hopefully the next time that you see this quilt it will be quilted.  Cheer me on to give me that extra motivation that I will need before the holidays, or maybe I should just wait for January??

The next post... Quilt Market!!

Until Next Time...

This is one my favourites of yours Jackie, those colours speak to me everytime I see it. Thanks for the link, I must get in and make and post my block two!! xo

I love the color splash in this piece... I say quilt it in January when it's gloomy. Being in contact with all that colorful goodness will surely chase away the winter blahs....
