Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side

AmysCreativeSideAmy's Creative Side is hosting her Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival. I anxiously awaited to join in the fun once I learned of  it! This festival is new to me but as I learn not really so new since this is the 6th year she has hosted a festival Spring and Fall.

This year's Fall Festival is October 25 - November 8.

There are 14 categories that you can choose to submit your quilty project.

For this Fall Festival 2013 I am choosing Home Machine Quilted Quilt.

Many of you may have seen my Craftsy Sampler Block of the Month quilt or quilt blocks as I posted for a couple of months progress of each block as I quilted them. Since it was a sampler quilt the quilting of each block is in essence a sampler of quilting designs that in most cases enhanced the block pattern. Some quilting doesn't show since it was competing with the busyness of the fabric design.

This post brings each block quilted to one page.

Craftsy Block of the Month 2013 Finished

Front and back of Craftsy Block of the Month 2012

Dresden Plates - Quilting is feathers and lines.

Hexies - Hexie strip has a feather wreath quilting on the background fabric.
 Hexie flower has been quilted with a  cross hatch design.

Drunkard's Path: Chain Block and Cleopatra's Puzzle - More feathers and cross hatching quilting designs

Paper Pieced: Friendship Circle Block and Circle of Geese Block - Again more feathers
and cross hatching quilting but more elaborate. Look how small the feather plumes are.

Strings Family: String Block and Broken Spider Web - Large feather design quilting on the strings quilt.
Broken Spider Web is a combo of feathers in the center and lines on the strings to give more appearance of webbing.

Stars: Double Star Block and Ohio Star

HST: Balkan Puzzle and Chunky Chevron Lots of feathering going on here and outlining blocks.

Octagon and Greek Cross

Log Cabin Family: Modern Log Cabin and Wonky 5-sided Log Cabin

Wonky Pound Sign and Asterik

This is where I quilted my quilts using my Janome Quilter's companion sewing machine and quilting table. Love my table since it has the back leaf extension with a cabinet on roller casters that allows me to pull out and have an extension on the left side to hold the weight of fabric. In this image I am quilting a t-shirt quilt. I have since rearranged my sewing room again but it is a disaster at the moment.

Thank you Amy for hosting Blogger's Quilt Festival. I am looking forward to seeing all the other entries.

  1. What a great sampler quilt, and interesting to see your set-up. Enjoy the festival!

  2. Nice set up. I've been really wanting to do a t-shirt quilt. One day I will. That's a great quilt that you entered.

  3. Love your quilt, Jeanie! I did those blocks, but they didn't come out as great as yours. Think it was the fabrics - your choices were way better than mine. And a great creative space for quilting.

  4. Love your table, too! Your quilt is really wonderful. Great quilting for sure.

  5. I've only ever done one sampler quilt, and I donated it to a charity overseas who did the quilting so I didn't have to, so I totally admire someone that can tackle the quilting on one of these, love the variation between blocks!

  6. It is just fabulous. Thanks for all the great close up pictures.

  7. This is a really beautiful quilt- front and back!
