Blogger's Quilt Festival - Salt Air

I must have been sleeping..I almost missed the Blogger's Quilt Festival! 

It is organized over at Amy's Creative Side, and is a great place to see lots and lots of great quilts!!
Thank you so much, Amy, for doing this!

Of course, I spend way too much time browsing around at all the inspiration there!!

So my entry for this year is one of my Salt Air quilt...

It is a simple brick quilt, but I think really features the beautiful colours and pattens of this line. It finished at about 75"x 85".

The backing was from my stash..Urban Cosmos by Prima Style.

I quilted it on my home machine..( yup...all 90" of it LOL !|)...  just a large loopy flower pattern all over..

For the binding, I used one of the fun prints..
.....ready made it!!

This was the first time that I tried washable wool for the batting. It was easy to work with, and turned out soft and warm! It is a bit more expensive, but I wanted a warmer quilt, so it was perfect.

Overall I am really happy with this one, hope you like it too!

Finished size: 75" x 85"

  6. Hi Flo, I love your quilt. It makes great use of the Salt Air fabrics. I used these in a recent quilt and although they weren't something I would normally have gone for, I love them! The prints are so interesting and the colours play so nicely together. Ps. You are an absolute legend for quilting that behometh on a home machine, and FMQ no less! Go you.

  8. A gorgeous fun quilt and I love the fabric selection. Take care.
