The Bloggers Quilt Festival is on again at Amys Creative Side and ive decided to join in the fun with this quilt. I wanted to make something special for my sisters 40th birthday and i had successfully made one of these circle quilts previously and was keen to tackle another. This one was slightly bigger at 90" x 90" and all pieced and machine quilted on my little sewing machine. I have a collection of vintage sheet fabrics which i love and wanted to use them as the main focus in this quilt and added some new designer fabrics as well. I used over 60 different vintage sheet fabrics in this quilt! I also used a lovely unused vintage sheet for the back. I have had a little bit of experience in making quilts , mainly for babies, and this was the second full size quilt i have made and ive learnt not to get slack with the basting. I had a few dramas machine quilting, being such a huge quilt and using such a small machine was certainly a challenge. I ended up with a few puckers which i didnt really want but after washing and drying and crinkling it really wasnt as noticable.
I loved being able to make something so unique with the design and the fabrics and that it is in the hands of someone who really loves and appreciates that too!
