BQF- My New Quilt and NEW Pattern!!!

 I think Amy is genius!! For those of you who are following my class and are new to Bloggers Quilt festival.. Sit back, put your feet up, chuck a sickie at work... and spend time visiting ALL the amazing quilts out there. Amy has a master list of all the Quilts on her blog..

This year... I want to show you my NEW Kaleidoscope Quilt and
 My Kaleidoscope Quilt was made using the fabrics from Pat Bravo's range Bazaar style. I love Pat's fabrics. I have a thing for florals, vibrant colours, lace, doilies, anything vintage and Pat captures all that. I chose 12 fat Quarters for each of the 12 blocks. For the background fabric and binding I used fabric from her lace elements range.
 Hand Quilting is probably one of my favourite parts of the Quilting process. I love sitting with my family and sewing, although for this quilt, I decided to give it something I couldn't. I had it quilted professionally in an all over floral paisley design. The quilting turned out amazing.
Since designing my quilt for the last festival.. I have had curves buzzing around in my head. I love em. There are just so many designs you can do. This little corner to corner curved piece.. opens up a whole new world to quilting.
 If your a bit scared to try curved piecing... I have a tutorial HERE where I explain how to sew it. Don't be shy.. Its easy.. Really! You just need a few little tips.
 is Available NOW from my shop.
I love sewing, I love quilting. I love fabric and designing new quilts. It has become such a passion. So, for those of you who may be interested... I'm teaching a FREE online Quilt Class 101. Its a 12 week course that covers everything for making a quilt from start to finish and more. There is also a great line up of my favourite featured bloggers with little projects in between. You can follow along and read all about it HERE!
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the festival..AND now that Blogger is working again.... I'm off to enjoy some "R and R"......and R.... "Rest and Recreation and...... Reading blogs!"
