Amy of Amy's Creative Side is hosting the fall Blogger's Quilt Festival to coincide with fall Quilt Market. You still have time to enter. Choose a category (one of 15!) at the festival link (above), write a post about your quilt, then link it to the category you chose. What a fun way to see lots of quilts.
I'm entering Center Light into the scrappy quilt category.
This quilt came about because I had an over-abundance of light, plain scraps. It was either throw them out or make them into something. I chose the latter. I did not have a layout in mind when I began sewing the blocks. It's the result of pure play. I finished stitching the top a few years ago and finished hand quilting it last month. It measures 61½" x 80". Individual blocks measured 5" before quilting and shrinkage in the washer.
You can see how scrappy some of the light blocks are from the two below. I was just trying to use up the little pieces.
Here are two more views.
You can join the fun by viewing the quilts and/or by entering one of your quilts in whatever category seems right.
Doesn't everyone love a festival, especially when we can miss the hustle and bustle of people packed elbow to elbow and just enjoy the sights?! I know I do. Now that I've finished this post I'm headed over to see the other entries in the festival.
P.S. Here are links to all the categories: baby quilt, throw quilt, scrappy quilt, group/bee quilt, two color quilt, ROYGBIV quilt, applique quilt, hand quilted quilt, home machine quilted quilt, professionally quilted quilt, quilt photographer, art quilt, doll/mini quilt, wall hanging, bed quilt.
