Well it's that time again. Blogger's quilt festival!
It might feel like a bit of deja vu, since I only finished this quilt this time last month, but I'm really proud of this one and I thought it might be fun to enter this year.
It's my DUDQS for 2012.
I sent this off to a lovely lady a few hundred k's south of me. It was so much fun making it and I really let my self get creative since it's in a mini quilt size!
I even got in there with some hand quilting.
And the back is made up of the scraps from the front. I put together this panel and trimmed it down to 8" x 10", from memory. Don't quote me ;)
A couple of borders and the back makes up it's own little quilt too.
I really pushed my self to try and think of something a bit more unique than what I'm used to making and I'm really happy I did! The design just evolved as I was working and as it happens, probably with most quilters, this isn't what I was planning on making when I started. I knew that I wanted to make something in a rainbow pallet but not in the typical way and this is the first project where I have used only solids (for the front anyway). I received such great feedback from the other quilters in the swap and I'm so grateful for that. I'm definitely planning on making a couple more of these, I have a bare spot on my wall calling out for one. ;D
