Blogger's Quilt Festival









I thought I would enter one of my favorite quilts in the Blogger Quilt Festival hosted by Parkcitygirl. This happens to be a very simple quilt with nine patches using Amy Butler fabrics from one of her older lines called Charm. The layout of this quilt was completely inspired by a vintage quilt I had seen online. Sometimes I browse the vintage quilts on ebay for inspiration and I found a quilt similar to this that inspired me. What I thought was interesting about the vintage quilt was that the person who made it used like fabrics next to each other throughout the quilt rather than placing them randomly and far apart as I would have thought to do. I liked the idea of placing same fabrics next to each other and so this quilt was born. I also decided to arrange the patches in color areas on the quilt. If you look closely, there is a blue corner, a green corner, a pink one and an orange one. This quilt is currently being used on our bed.

Very beautiful quilt!
I love antique quilts, too, and the inspiration they can give us.

great fabric choice -vibrant pastels, yummy! I find inspiration in traditional and antique quilts too and just switch to modern fabrics, a good recipe that creates beautiful quilts as all of yours are.

What an interesting idea! I'm always trying to get the same fabrics as far as possible from one another, but this is beautiful!

I really love your quilt! The soft colours and blending remind me of a Kaffe Fasset design. Very nice job! Thanks for sharing.
