Bloggers Quilt Festival Part 1


I know you have already seen this quilt
But I have decided to enter it in the Bloggers Quilt Festival

I picked up a Fat Quarter bundle of
Bohemian Festival by Lila Tueller
last spring while visiting a quilt shop in a small town
I was drawn to all the bright fun colours

The bundle sat on my shelf for a little while, 
until one day I came across a Quilt Along
using the Impromtu pattern 
I figured this was the perfect way to show off all of these fun prints in this fabric line

I worked away at this quilt over the summer

Then put it away for a while,
you know how it is, life gets in the way sometimes

brought it back out in the fall

created this backing for it

Which is a giant disappearing 9 patch from the front

then put it to the side again

Having a rainy weekend during harvest here on the farm
I dug it out again and started to quilt it
I tried my had at 1.5 inch straight lines,
I like how it turned out and am pretty happy with myself!!

Auditioned many colors for the binding, deciding that hot pink would look best

I linked my quilt up with 2 weekly linky parties, only to go back the next week and see they had both picked MY QUILT to show case in their favourites!!!

SO now I have decided to enter this quilt in the bloggers quilt festival
this is my first entry ever!!!
