Blogger's Quilt Festival 2
For my second entry into the Blogger's Quilt Festival, I am entering one of my most favorite quilts that I have made.
I made this quilt earlier this year - mostly to use up some scraps. I don't even think I had much of a plan when I started.
This quilt lives on our couch and is used everyday! I'm pretty sure that one of the reasons my daughters' love it is because it is backed in soft flannel.
This was one of the largest quilts I've made and I still remember my husband constantly having to take breaks to rest his arms while I was taking photos.
I'm going to put it in the home machine quilted category. I quilted most of it with a figure 8 design but I also mixed in some clamshells and some wavy-ish lines. If I am remembering correctly, this was the first time I tried the figure 8 design - but it was definitely not the last!
