Quilt Festival

Harvest of Friendship
     I’ve admired the beautiful quilts in the Bloggers Quilt Festival and now I’m taking the plunge and submitting one of mine for consideration.

     This is Harvest of Friendship,  a row quilt which didn’t want to be set in rows. Members of my bee decided we’d make blocks over the course of a year and each ended up with a quilt. We decided on six 9-inch blocks and each participant chose her own colors and focus fabric.

     We were all pleased with the outcome and I love mine. You wouldn’t think 36 nine-inch blocks could be a king-sized quilt but here’s proof that it can happen!

     The layout was done on  EQ7, and the quilting is by the amazing Michele Mayton. Can you say free-motion feathers? Her work is beautiful and I’d recommend her to anyone!

Edited to add: size: 96 x 110. Machine quilted by Michele Mayton
