Blogger's quilt festival

Quilt market is in full swing and that means it's time for .....

AmysCreativeSide

My entry for the fall blogger's festival is my Rainbow queen 'strip and flip' quilt, which I am entering into the ROYGBIV (colour wheel) quilt category.

I used a Kona classics roll up and Architextures Crosshatch and was roughly (read badly) following the Cluck Cluck Sew strip and flip tute. 


 Sticking with the simple theme, I quilted wavy lines with #Aurifil in variegated greys (#4670) with my walking foot, which gives the quilt a really lovely texture.


 I admit to being a little addicted to the ubiquitous Ikea numbers print, but it suited this quilt so well, it was a must for the backing.


This quilt wasn't suppose to be for me, but I just couldn't give it up in the end.  I did promise my kidlet a superhero quilt instead though ;-)

Quilt stats:
Fabrics - Kona classic roll up and Architextures Crosshatch in black
Binding - Architextures crosshatch in black.
Backing - Ikea Britten Nummer
Quilting -Wonky wavy lines using Aurifil 50wt variegated in grey (4670)
Size - Approx 52" * 69" 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I am off to look at the other entries, which is my favourite part of the festival.
