2017 Quilt Bloggers Festival

Amy is sponsoring once again the Blogger’s Quilt Festival.  You can read all about it here.   Please visit some of the quilts that strike your fancy and leave comments for the quilters!

This little quilt I finished a few weeks ago.  I honestly just love it.  It was a Row by Row from 2016 from Alewives Fabrics in Nobleboro, ME.   The trees are all Dr. Seuss like and it is so much fun.  I often use this size on an island near my dining room, but this one I got a little carried away with the borders.  It finished at 15″ x 40″.

This little squiggle of quilting in the inner binding makes me happy.  For quilting threads, I used three different threads:

  1.  YLI Machine quilting in Green to Tan 
  2. Superior Mono Poly to go around the trees
  3. Mettler 50 weight, #678  

This is the second time I have used this binding technique and I really love the pop of color you get.  Also, it’s all done on machine, so it couldn’t be easier.  

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the festival!

    It turned out so cute! I love the idea of taking one row and making it into its own quilt!

    Fun, fun, FUN!!! P.S. That's one of my favorite binding techniques, too.

      Thank you! I can see why you love that binding technique – it is a great eye catcher and fast – what's not like.
