Spring 2010 Blogger Quilt Festival!!!



moda quilt- Hello Betty

Moda quilt- Hello Betty

I love Moda! This specific fabric is the Hello Betty series which I fell in love with and decided that I loved the fabric so much I didn't even want to cut it! I made it with simple large squares so that I could see more of the beautiful pattern. Parts of the series reminds me of the 60's and then other parts especially the colors remind me of the 50's. Love it! I made this quilt for simply nothing else but the love of the fabric and it's cuddliness in the winter. :) Next up will be my new Moda Frolic fabric my mom bought for me. (shown below) I can't wait! I might have to get creative and challenge myself to actually using a more complicated pattern. Any ideas? Ok, now go visit all the rest of the beautiful quilts here at the Spring 2010 Blogger Quilt Festival...there are prizes... :)

Your quilt does look perfect for cuddling! I love how you used the white sashing with it -- looks so much like a scrappy vintage quilt!

I have a little charm pack I'm planning to cut into half square triangles and then turn into pinwheels on a white background. :)

Lovely, happy quilt!

Aren't charm squares fun? A disappearing 9 patch is another pattern you might think about trying.

Great quilt! I just LOVE MODA too! Sometimes it's nice to just load up with charm square packs and leave the color choices to the designers!

What a pretty quilt.....I just can't get enough of the quilts sashed in white, and this one is no exception in it's 'prettiness' !

and that new fabric .......
FAINT ! I think it would be pretty in a Cobblestones quilt.....Postcards, I think Film in the Fridge called it !

By the way, congrats on your win over at Amy's blog !
