Blogger's Quilt Festival - Home Machine Quilted Quilt

Spring has finally arrived in my corner of the world, just in time to coincide with the Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival that Amy organises brilliantly. So many beauties to discover, so many lovely blogs to get lost into!

With 11 categories to enter quilts under, there should be a fantastic range of quilts to admire! After much thoughts, I have decided to enter my Cats Quilt in the Home Machine Quilted Category.

I had so much problems quilting this big top (it finishes at 72' square) because I hadn't fitted the wrong free-motion foot on my machine initially (you can read more about it here if you are interested) that it seems to be a natural choice!


I made this quilt for my daughter's bed but it was a long quilt in the making. It started in February 2013 when I asked my fellow bees from Bee Europa to make blocks for me using the London Cats/Paris Cats fabrics from Benartex that I sent them.

They sent me the blocks back but I still needed more to make the quilt bigger and although the blocks were not difficult to make, I left them aside for a while. Finally earlier this year, when my daughter moved to a big bed, I thought it was time to finish her quilt. So I made more blocks and finished the quilt top that I finally quilted earlier this month

with butterflies, flowers and lots of hearts all over the top.


I also wrote a few love messages for her.


And after finishing the binding last week, she was happy to play with it and sleep under it straight away!
