Blogger’s Quilt Festival

 img_0376

Better late than never!  My entry for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival is my Charisma four patch quilt…basically lots of four patches sewn together on point.

This was my first time stippling a full sized quilt!  The tiny blocks led me to do tiny stipples no matter how hard I tried to make bigger stipples.  I still love how it turned out and am so glad I took the plunge into free motion quilting.

This was also the first quilt I got to keep!  I made so many baby quilts over the past year and a half and even gave away my first full sized quilt to my parents for Christmas last year.  This one’s for me!

Now that the weather is getting colder I’ve actually had a chance to use it.  This pink backing makes me smile every time I use it!

I love the layout and how the colors "blend" together. Your stippling looks good also!

Thanks for sharing,

Oh wow, this is so cool. The "texture" it creates reminds me of those chains we used to make out of gum wrappers when we were little! Is that just me?

Great colours in your quilt and they work so well in this design. I am pleased you finally managed to keep a quilt for yourself!
