Spring 2010 Blogger's Quilt Festival





How fun is this ?!?!?  Amy's Creative Side is having a Blogger's Quilt Festival!  I'm looking forward to spending my evening sifting through the 472 submitted quilts (thus far).  I also wanted to add mine! 

My entry is "United Scraps".   This was the first quilt I ever designed!  And it has had a large influence on a number quilts that I have made since (both with the pervasive used of negative space as well as unifiying scraps by colors).  I was REALLY proud of this quilt and how far I had come in (at that time 8 short months). 





This quilt led to my blog ... once I had completed it, I finally felt I was ready to participate in the blogging community.

In a number of ways ... it has been an inspiration to me and it is still my FAVORITE quilt of the 42 I have made!

So ... I hope you'll head off to the Quilt Festival and check out what a talented community of quilters there is out there ...

All the best
Lisa

  1. This is the quilt that first drew me to your blog...I absolutely adore it and although it probably wouldn't seem that way if you looked at the two designs together, was an inspiration for my current VQB quilt.

    I just can't believe that you've been quilting such a short time! I always look forward to your posts.
