Yeah! It’s time for the third annual Blogger Quilt Festival! I’m so excited – I love it when Amy’s Creative Side Posts these! It’s so much fun to spend time looking at everyone’s link and seeing what they’ve created.
I have decided for this Festival to show off my Shoofly Quilt. This was my first Project Quilting Challenge Piece. I had to use the traditional shoofly block and then incorporate stripes into the quilt. I used three fabrics to create this quilt – the water-colorish white fabric, the brown branch printed fabric, and a beautiful yard of hand-dyed fabric (I dyed myself).
To create my ‘stripe’ I actually embellished part of the hand-dyed fabric with fibers – some hand-dyed, some commercial, even a few ribbons! It was a bit of challenge when having to iron the piecing together but I think the overall effect turned out just stunning! To read more about my process and to see what other’s have completed for the challenge check out the flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1401824@N21/
