Bloggers Quilt Festival




Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Bloggers Quilt Festival!

Thank you Amy, for having this festival every year. I really enjoy looking at the quilts. And it's fun to enter one too.

This year I am entering my son's quilt. Jed is 19, and he was way overdue for a large quilt, to fit his 6'3" frame!

 I thought these geometric fabrics would fit him perfectly.



 Added in some solids....



And this cool ombre grey, looks just like moonlight shining down on some RR tracks.



My son is a train lover, his quilt is called Train Stop.



This is my first big quilt that I've fmqed. I have a vintage Singer 201, which I love. I do my piecing and quilting on it. I learned a lot quilting this quilt. I need a lot more practice, but I love fmqing :)

Here's a close up shot from the back.



I did a lot of straight line quilting on it also, with a walking foot.

It's 84x84, so a large quilt. The solids are Kona solids. The backing is by V&CO's Simply Color line.

You can read more about this quilt here.

Its' entered in the large quilts catagory.

Thank you all for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed Train Stop. Don't forget to look at all the other quilts in the Festival.

See my second entry here.
