Blogger's quilt festival

Amy that was Park City Girl is hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival again, so I thought I'd join in.
This is the New Wave quilt that was designed by Elizabeth Hartman, but I made it slightly smaller for a baby size and turned it on end. She offered the pattern free on her website, and now she has expanded it to include other sizes (which she is selling in her shop). I have never bound a quilt in white before, and I was slightly skeptical about how it would look, but I really like how it frames the quilt, ties in with the sashing.
Amy Butler's Midwest Modern.
Back.
I love the movement of this quilt, and I wanted my quilting to complement that. I just did some wavy vertical lines that overlap each other. I absolutely love the overall effect. I wish I could have kept this quilt, but I don't have any baby girls anymore.
And look how happy the mama is. She loves it too, and that's what it's about for me anyway.
Don't forget to click on the logo above to see everyone else's Festival quilts. There are a ton out there, lots of inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by.

It is so beautiful and so sweet. I have never bound in white either, but I love the look of it.

What a perfect baby shower quilt, the lines of the quilt have a real 'pregnant' full look.

Oh, it's just beautiful! I like that you included a picture of the mama cause it gives the scale of the zig zags. Wonderful work you did on this quilt. Thanks for sharing your quilt's story :)

Dolly said...

What a wonderful gift. She could plan all of her baby's colors around that quilt alone !

Kathy said...

Your gift of that beautiful quilt must have made that new mom very happy. I like the elongated shape of the tumbler block. It is something that makes your quilt very unique.
