I'm finding myself following more quilting blogs.  One recent discovery is s.o.t.a.k.handmade where she is featuring a Bloggers Quilt Festival.  If I can figure out how to do this right I will be entering 2 of my quilts. Head on over to Amy's Creative Side, to see the home machine quilted category and for the scrappy quilts category take a look here.  Voting begins on November 11th.

Here is quilt entered into The Scrappy Quilts Category.

I've made several kaleidoscope projects from nap quilts, pillow covers, candle mats and table runners. All from scraps left over from previous quilt projects, clothing projects, thrifted textiles, etc. The back of this quilt and every quilt I make is pieced with larger blocks of fabric, again in a random pattern.  Binding is made from pieced fabrics to continue the randomness of this quilt. The quilting design is a free motion pattern done on my home sewing machine.

This one was entered into The Home Machine Quilted Category.

I call this design "framed square".  I have made I believe 6 of these quilts and find this is one of my favorite designs because I use mainly plaids, homespuns and mini prints in a random pattern while the sashing is a muslin/onasburg.  Yet when photographed this quilt looks very clean and modern. The backside is pieced with larger blocks of fabrics laid out in a random design, binding is also pieced. The quilting design is a free motion pattern done on my home sewing machine.

I think I got these entered correctly, voting begins November 11th. Be sure to look at all the quilts and vote.

It is a bit difficult to make out the quilting on your photo, but anyone who can manage to quilt a double bed size quilt on a domestic deserves a round of applause!
