Blogger's Quilt Festival

spring 2015 BQF Button




I love the Blogger's Quilt Festival that Amy organises as there is always such a diversity of stunning quilt that I would otherwise never discover. I like the opportunity for "anonymous quilters" like me to exhibit one or more quilt and drive traffic to my little blog for a few days!

It is always difficult to choose ONE quilt for the festival but this year I have been in so many swaps that I have picked one of the mini quilt I have made not that long ago. I picked the mini I made before Christmas for the IG mini swap. I picked a pattern from Diane called Celestial Star which is all paper-pieced and I picked a colour scheme which is not a common one for me, so this was quite challenging!

And with 12 of these, you get a lovely star floatting inside a ring, magical!

I think my partner liked her quilt. I must say I would have gladly kept it by the time it was finished, which is always a good sign!
