First Annual Bloggers Quilt Festival


006, originally uploaded by myittybittyquilts.

This is my current favorite quilt. Believe me, I change my mind often!

I blogged about this quilt a little while ago, so I'm sorry if you come across it twice!
I was a part of a 6 1/2" fabric square exchange on www.sewingmamas.com. Our theme was Amy Butler. That was probably obvious! Her fabrics are so dynamic and SO different, but I thought I would still put them together in the same quilt. It was an extremely simple top to piece. I merely cut my squares in half and then laid them out on the floor in a brick pattern until I was happy :) I knew that it needed a pretty calm border so I choose a solid light blue and a light green tone-on-tone check.
This quilt is going to be a gift for a long time friend. We don't get to see each other much anymore, but she still holds such a special place in my heart.
Thanks for taking the time to look!

Great quilt! I love it's simplicity. It appears that you carefully cut the fabric -- almost like fussy cuts but not quite.

Bold and beautiful. How great to give the eye rest by putting a calming border on it.

Very lovely quilt and what a great way to use the beautiful Amy Butler fabrics. It is sometimes difficult to find a pattern to showcase large print fabrics. Your quilt does that beautifully.
Thanks for sharing.
