Blogger Quilt Festival

Spring 2010 Bqf 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.  P4170016

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).  P4170019 

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:
