Bloggers Quilt Festival Fall 2013


Hello everyone

I only discovered yesterday that 2 entries are allowed into the Bloggers Quilt Festival, the twice yearly quiltfest kindly organised by Amy from Amy's Creative Side

I have decided my second entry will be my Hummingbirds piece in the Wall Hanging quilt category.


It measures 27" x 35" and I've only finished it in the last few weeks.   The appliqued hummingbirds were supposed to go in the border of another quilt I was making but they didn't look right.  This is how this piece came to be.

I appliqued the birds, flowers and leaves using bondaweb then with the work in a slat frame, I hand embroidered over the top.   Took quite a few weeks but was worth it.




I made some crumby/string blocks for the border then it was ready to quilt.

This is the finished result:











I hope you can find the time to pop over and look at all the quilts.  There are really some amazing entries - very inspiring.
Thanks for stopping by,
Rhianon.
