It's time for another Blogger Quilt Festival hosted by the wonderful Amy for all of us who didn't get to go to Market. Thanks Amy! The last two were tons of fun so I can't wait to check out everyone's quilts this time around.
I'm choosing to show my first Moda Bake Shop quilt, Whimsy Square.
The story of this quilt is really just that I wanted to use up some of the little charms that came in the Moda Bake Shop Sampler but wanted something bigger so I needed to come up with something. I knew it would be smaller so I went with the Whimsy, which is Fig Tree's first children's line, though it's not really all that juvenile, or maybe it is and so am I!
After making this quilt I realized I could make it exactly the same with a charm pack and jelly roll....so I did! This time I used Eden and am in the process of basting/quilting it for my daughter.
This quilt means a lot to me, not so much because of the fabrics or design, which I will say I still love lol.
It's important because it was really a step for me to put it out there and submit it for the Bake Shop and for so many people not only to see but to give them my directions on how to make it.
This sort of thing terrifies me but I'm trying more and more to not let it stop me, especially when it is something I want to do.
The legacy of "Whimsy Square" is that I have three more projects approved for Moda Bake Shop! And I can't wait to get started on my next quilt to share with everyone. I always enjoying seeing other people's work so I like being able to show something in return.
Oh and I have a giveaway going on here. The deadline is Monday, May 24th in the evening.
