Blogger’s Quilt Festival

It’s that time of year again when we normal, common, quilting citizens sit at home and cry about not attending Quilt Market, (well ok, maybe it isn’t that bad, but I know I’m at least a couple shades of green).  Luckily, Amy at Amy’s Creative Side has organized The Bloggers Quilt Festival and it gets bigger and better each time!

My favorite quilt I have made this year would be my Spiral Geese Mini Quilt.



I created this rainbow mini for a Flickr swap and it was a fun challenge all around.  I enjoy experimenting with curved geese and I had this image of a spiral in my head.  I wasn’t even sure if it would actually work, but it did!  You can read about my process for creating a pattern for this mini here.



I quilted it on my Juki and hand embroidered teeny-tiny white geese in the center.
I’m currently working on a pattern for this mini, so check back, if you want to make your own!


Size: 20″x 20″
Special Techniques: paper-piecing, reverse appliqué
Quilted by: Janice Ryan (that’s me!)
