Blogger's Quilt Festival



Bloggers Quilt Festival



This is the TENTH Bloggers Quilt Festival I've joined, and this past June maked my 5th year quilting.   


This time I'm showing off this Delectable Mountain quilt made with Lush Uptown.  When I made the blocks I decided early on to make half of them complete blocks and half mixed, with two fabrics. Because I used 21 fat eights, I only had so much fabric to work with. I'm really please with how the quilt top turned out. I ended up with only one orphan block; talk about cutting it close!,  This quilt top measures 76" x 50", a nice size to use for napping or reading a book.



I love the quilt back, too.



The color of the quilting thread is Honey 32607, and the pattern is Old Oakky.  I love working with my long-arm quilter Janiel Miller, on this part of the process.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, browse around if you have the time.  I'm linking up to Amy's Creative Side, she does a wonderful job with the Quilt Festival.

May your bobbins always be full,
