Megan's Quilt Finish

Hi to everyone new who may be visiting our blog...welcome and take a look around! :) Friday is a few short hours away and it's the start of Blogger's Quilt Festival from Amy's Creative Side. My sister Heather and I have been anxiously awaiting this event for a while and we hope you like our quilts!

A while back I purchased some of Joel Dewberry's fabric line Deer Valley. I wanted to re-do my bedroom in aqua's and gray's with a little bit of orange in there. It took me a long time to decide what kind of quilt I wanted for the end of my bed...so I used some traditional piecing and a modern layout, and I present my quilt
And my pieced back (I just can't resist piecing the backs these days!)
Scrappy binding just fit perfect with this quilt and all the colors.

A closer look at the blocks.

Well I had a list of things I still had left to do.
Among them, a cute pieced blanket for the end of my bed :)
And I've decided to sell this quilt pattern!

For the next week starting NOW thru Thursday November 4th Heather and I are putting all of our patterns on SALE.
That's right.
click on the image to head straight to our shop!

Okay you can read it again, it's a cute image afterall.
So please head on over to our Etsy shop and take a look around.

Just sayin'.

Don't forget to see my sister Heather's quilt finish!

This is a really beautiful quilt - I love the simple but striking pattern, the bright colours against the white and also the beautiful photos you took - don't good photos make such a difference!

I adore Deer Valley and really adore your quilt! I just made a bed runner using a Deer Valley FQ bundle for my master bedroom. So, if you get tired of the quilt, I'll take it! LOL!

I need to get practicing on my flying geese. I love the many design options of that block.

What a great choice to highlight!

Angie Padilla said...

In addition to loving the fabrics, I have to tell you I also think you do a wonderful job with your photos. I especially like the last one. The angle at which it was taken is really effective.

I do love a scrappy binding. Oh so many Geese. Flying Geese are no my friend. I made some once following Eleanor Burns Quilt in a day program and when she said to cut them at 1"x3" I listen. Man that was not a good day some 100+ geese 1/2" to small on all sides! Yes I cut them down and reworked the pattern smaller... Eventually!

Lindsay @ Me Quilting said...
