Here is my entry into this fall's Blogger Quilt Festival. This is a very recent finish so I haven't even mentioned it on my blog yet. I chose this quilt because it has so many of my favorite quilt related things all combined into one!
I then used the quilt-as-you-go method and made each EPP block the center block of a log cabin using mostly light colors but adding in the occasional pop of color.
Next, I improv pieced them all together (I found QAYG and Improv piecing to be a bit of a tricky combination!)
I also added this little scrappy rainbow of fabrics to the bottom left corner.
I backed it with a wonderfully soft flannel from Amy Butler's Love Collection. (And yes, I pre-washed the red fabrics - I actually pre-wash all my fabric anyway!)
And then I added just a tiny bit of hand-quilting to each EPP block in a coordinating color (I had to take some of the photos in this post before adding the hand-quilting.)
That's it - almost all of my favorite types of quilting - EPP, QAYG, log cabins, hand-quilting, scrappy fabrics combinations, and rainbows.
