Blogger’s Quilt Festival again

It is show time again!

Amy over at Amy’s Creative Side is organizing the 8th Blogger’s Quilt Festival. It gets better each year.

This time I am going to show you my latest finished work.

It is a baby quilt that I made on commission. The customer wanted a colourful quilt, and to have photos of family members in it. (The photo prints are better in the real quilt than they look in the picture above, where I have blurred the faces).

The quilt has 155 log cabin blocks with one round of “logs” in them, plus 14 photo blocks. I used 75-80 different fabrics total in this quilt.

The quilt is approximately 1 x 1 meter. Since it is quite small, I have quilted it myself. Doing a little at a time, my shoulders braved it quite well.

The customer had taken a fancy to one of my previous quilts, so the design is inspired by the quilt called “Light”.  It is the third quilt down on this page.

I enjoyed making that quilt, and I also enjoyed making this one.

This is my 8th time participating in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, and my entry is #70 on the linky list.

My quilts entered into the previous festivals can be seen here:

It is great that Amy is still organizing this event.

Enjoy!
