Bloggers Quilt Festival

Hi Everyone!

I'm excited to enter the Blogger's Quilt Festival for the first time.  The quilt I am entering is the Hunter's Star quilt I made for my Mum.  The pattern is from Sew Scrappy Volume 1 and it measures approximately 60" square.

I love how it turned out.  The fabrics I used are a combination of Pom Pom de Paris by French General,  Collection for a Cause - Faith by Howard Marcus, Lily and Will by Bunny Hill and Antique Fair by Blackbird designs.  Plus, some of my favourite neutrals that I'd been hoarding.

Mum quilted it for me with a pretty feather panto (what kind of gift is it when she had to quilt it herself? - oh, and she bound it too!  Don't get a gift from me - it's too much work). 

Here's a close up of the quilting on the back.  I love this fabric - I am a sucker for a birdie!

I loved making this quilt so much that I have since made two more.  You can read about those here.

I am off now to drool over everyone else's quilts.  You can too - head on over......
