I really enjoy seeing all the quilts each time Amy has a Bloggers’ Quilt Festival. It is wonderful to see the huge variety of designs made by so many different people.
Thank you to Amy and all her wonderful sponsors .  Visit Amy’s Creative Side to see the details of all the exciting things that are happening.
I am joining in with a quilt that I finished just a few weeks ago.
The fabric is Califon by Mark Lipinski. I have used charm packs to make the blocks. I started quite simply by making as many blocks as I could using the disappearing 9 patch method. I tried to keep the combinations as random as possible.
I then chose 4 of the cut up blocks to sew together as the centre and  added a white border.
Another border was added that was made up of the DSP 9 patch blocks.
I continued to alternate white borders with DSP 9P borders until I ran out of blocks.
The quilt ended up at 70 by 70 inches.
I sent it off to my LAQ and had a lovely swirly design  quilted on it. There were so many swirls in the fabric design that it was the obvious choice.
And then a lovely stripey binding completed the quilt.
A simple wide back was used for the backing.
I love the way it has turned into a bright and Summery quilt.
Thank you once again to Amy for organising the quilt festival. I hope you have fun visiting all the sites and seeing the wonderful quilts on display.
