Blogger's Quilt Festival

  It comes around twice a year....the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy at  Amy's Creative Side.   She works hard to give us a showcase for our quilts.....that's my motivation for entering this year.  Please take a few minutes to view and enjoy the entries.  Voting is next week I think.


This is Season's  Glow, my orange peel quilt.  Begin late last fall, it is the last quilt finished in my Year of Floral quilts.  My intention was to explore traditional patterns and translate those patterns into color wash designs  with floral fabrics.



  I have a very large stash of floral fabrics, so no duplicates in fabrics for the orange peels.      The orange peels are machine appliqued.  I shared the technique using fusible interfacing that I used to turn under the edges here.








Quilted by me..free hand all the way.  I did a simple outline on the peels, and small swirls in the border.
The border fabric is a soft mottled grey print that gave this quilt an old fashion look.









  Season's Glow is 55'' by 65'', and entered in the Applique Quilt category.




Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the festival.......happy stitching.

  3. Nice quilt. I've done that method before, but, with non-fusible. I've thought about using the fusible for circles.

  4. This is such a masterful quilt. The value placement and use is stellar. So many good quilts fall in the area of value. Love the orange peel design- I don't do machine applique, so I can appreciate the work you did.

  8. I should have known this would be your other entry in the festival! This is one of my favorites - always has been! Orange peel quilts have such a wonderful vintage look, softly old fashioned, lovable and perfect for snuggling.
