Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2015 - ROYGBIV

I just figured out...okay I just saw this on someone else' blog and  read all the info Amy posted about the Blogger's Quilt Festival...and realized I could enter 2 quilts...yeah! This quilt is my entry in the ROYGBIV category...Postcards from Kaffe, Brandon, Phillip and Mary!


I got the idea and the pattern for this quilt from Debbie at A Quilter's Table and you can view her tutorial here.


When I first started this quilt I thought I could keep it small ... wall hanging size... but in the end it is a nice lap size...it just got away from me! This happens to me lots...once I set out to make a potholder and it ended up being a twin size quilt...I have issues with self control - LOL! Anyway, this is 9 blocks wide and 15 blocks long. All the colorful prints are either Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably or Phillip Jacobs and there are no duplicates. So in a way this is a scrappy charm quilt too!  I LOVE bright colors and these fabric make me very happy! I've collected black and white text prints for a while and I love how they look when you pair them together.


I used a tiny block and white dotty print for the separating strip on each postcard and I used it for the binding too. The quilt was quilted  in a bright variegated thread by Terry Finnerty of The Walking Needle.


So you may have identified prints from Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably and Phillip Jacobs but are you scratching your head about Mary? Well, I'm talking about Mary Engelbreit.. and this is my favorite postcard message...


I've had this black and white print in my stash for a long time and it made the perfect postcard... don't you agree?

Thanks so much for stopping by... if you like what you see and have some time please read my other posts... I have lots of interests...quilting, cross stitch, knitting, making cards and jewelry... notice cooking and cleaning are no where on that list. I do them but under duress...LOL!

happy stitching-
