This morning I came across the Blogger's Quilt Festival via Cheryl at Naptime Quilter. 'Oh goody!', I thought to myself, 'Another post for Blogtoberfest!'
I decided to enter myself into the novice quilter category (if this category doesn't already exist, it should, even if I'm the only entrant!!).
NOTE: if you think you've seen this quilt before, you have, here. I'm squeezing it for all it's worth!
This is my first ever attempt at machine patchwork/quilting. It's a Moda Chocolat charm pack, with a couple of pieces of yardage for the borders. I quilted it very simply myself, and hand stitched the binding. The finished size is about 84 x 105cm (33 x 41.5 inches).
I sewed all the squares together around Christmas 2007, finally adding the borders and completing it about 2 months ago!
If you'd like to see more quilts entered into the festival, you'll find them here. I'm yet to have a proper look, but I suspect there'll be some pretty impressive entrants!
