Well, naturally, being slightly competitive and a lover of all things quilts....I figured I better throw my hat in! What do I have to enter though? This is the last day to enter and so it's not like I can finish any of my UFO's AND take pictures AND write a story.
Let me see....I must have something around here.....
Aha! Peace, Love and Happiness! I made this one last year and it makes me smile when I see it, isn't it so bright and cheery?
It's kind of scrappy (I love scrappy) and I also love rag quilts. They are super easy, you get to quilt as you go and they just have a homey, snuggly feel about them.
This quilt was really out of my element. I have a tendency to stay in a not so lively color pallet but I wanted bright and hippy colors contrasting with one of my favorite combinations, black and white.
I also love to use my embroidery machine AND I love applique....did I mention that I love all things quilt? So I got to play with finding just the right font for my "peace, love and happy"
and of course there is peace, love and happiness in applique too!
I had discovered in a previous rag quilt, the use of Osnaburg fabric for the inner layer. I absolutely love it! It gives my quilt a light but cozy feel and the Osnaburg just ravels so nicely!
AND, this is one of my favorite things about making a rag quilt....the back is done when the front is done and the only thing left is the binding!
So, I am going over to Amy's Creative Side now and link up to my first ever Blogger's Quilt Festival!
Come and see and the wonderful entries, you will be amazed, I promise!
