I am new to this blogging world and am so happy to be participating in Amy's
Bloggers Quilt Festival 2012!
My submission is this Spiderweb quilt, it has been with me to three retreats spanning the last two years, has used up a massive amount of scraps, has become a fabric diary/keepsake and is probably my favorite quilt to date.

Material Obsession two. The added border with the webs spilling out was an idea born from the want to quilt more webs into that space to add interest and a bit of asymmetry.

I used some of my all time favorite fabrics but REALLY, I love this quilt because it has fabrics shared with me from some of the wonderful friends I have met along the way...you know who you are...wink.

This quilt will always be one of my favorites. It truly represents who I am now as a quilter as well as where I am going. With a very strong foundation in traditional quilt making, spilling out into the more modern and contemporary themes and styles.
Thank you so much for stopping by and please check out all of the other amazing quilts featured in the festival, I am in awe of the talent in this community!!

It wasn't, but honestly it makes sense to me. I don't think this really falls into the "modern" category, I was sad at first but it really does make sense ;)Delete

This is one of my favorite quilts ever! I would love to make something like that for myself!!!

What a wonderful spin on Sarah Fielke's quilt! I LOVE your quilting too. I made a similar quilt recently, only I patterned mine after an old string quilt from Nancy Ray's collection in a Gwen Marston book. Don't think I'll quilt mine so well. But I am very inspired by yours! Thanks!ReplyDelete
