Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013

I finished my latest scrappy quilt just in time for Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival.  If not for the deadline, it would probably still not have binding!

I wanted to decrease my fat quarter stash so decided to make another quilt using the Spring Fever quilt pattern by Buggy Barn. It takes 30 fat quarters. One might assume that using 30 fat quarters would make a dent in my stash. Right?  Well, the dent is hard to see!  I used fabrics that I thought would give my quilt a vintage look and I must have succeeded because my grandson told me that it looked a "little old fashioned".

This is the second quilt I've made using this pattern.  The first one was black and white only.  Very different quilts but I like them both.  Be sure to visit Amy's Creative Side to see all the quilts in the Festival!

To and Fro quilt pattern

Looking for a new idea for a baby or toddler quilt?  My To and Fro quilt is finally available as a downloadable pattern!

To and Fro quilt

Have a couple of charm packs that you've been wondering what to do with? This may be just the right project for them. You need 77 charm squares (5") and some 1 1/2" wide strips to make this 37"x49" quilt.

This is also a fun quilt to make when wanting to use up a bunch of scraps.  It's like getting a quilt for free when you use fabric left over from other projects, right?  Read the first post about this quilt here.

You can download To and Fro right now at Double Nickel Quilts or Craftsy or PatternSpot.  Be sure to check out some of the other downloadable patterns also available if you're not familiar with these sites or haven't visited them in awhile.  There's more than just quilt patterns available and lots of  FREE patterns too.
