I love Bloggers' Quilt Festival! Twice a year, hundreds blogging quilters (quilting bloggers?) link up on Amy's Creative Side to share their creations. Here's mine.
I used the quilt festival as motivation to finish up this Christmas gift. The pattern is from Dare To Be Square Quilting by Boo Davis. I love this book, and I want to make several other patterns from it. I used Kona Cloud, Blue, Blueberry, and Cornflower for the background. The rest of the fabrics came from my stash.
Sweet face. I quilted in straight lines around the deer. (Thanks for the idea, Elizabeth!)
Red binding felt right on this quilt. I used Kona Chinese Red (the best Kona red!).
Boo emphasizes using fabric you have on hand: "Challenge yourself to keep your wallet shut and use just the fabric you have on hand." I took that to heart with the quilt back and used up some stash. Feels good!
I think you'll agree that this Deer Valley print belongs on the back of this quilt.
Thanks for stopping by! Head to Amy's blog to check out the other entries.
