THANK GOODNESS blogger decided to come back up - I was going through withdrawls! If you're here as part of the Blogger's Quilt Festival, welcome!
My quilt for this festival is pure Jennifer Paganelli. She had gifted me these fabrics, and I fell totally in love with them. What I love is that they are from many of her different lines, and yet they all go together beautifully.
I can't quite remember where I found the quilt pattern, but it uses the Drunkard's Path template. It's all in the way you arrange them. It took me a long time to decide how to quilt this - originally, I was going to do spirals, which meant it had to be hand-quilted. I started by stitching down the seams on the circles. [Which I may take out - it makes the circles look appliqued.] I ended up doing all straight lines, horizontally in the circles, vertically everywhere else.
Which, of course, meant I could have done it on the machine and saved myself six months. But I do love the hand quilting, and I love how it makes for a cuddlier quilt - it drapes beautifully.
I love all the color in this quilt. Jennifer's fabrics are saturated with color and design. She brings out my inner gypsy.
I love my quilt! I hope you like it too. It's a deceptively simple quilt to make.
And now, finally, I can go start my weekend browsing session to see all the wonderful quilts on display - thank you Amy for hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival!
