It’s Bloggers’ Quilt Festival time again! Unfortunately I don’t have a new finish this time around, but I can show you one of my favorite quilts from the last six months.
My Warm Cool HST quilt. I love it, my daughters love it and often request it when they’re sitting on the couch, and hopefully you love it too. : )
It’s scrappy and colorful and snuggly and a great size for a couch quilt. Many of my all-time favorite prints are in there—some of which I have used up and can’t buy anymore.
There are like a gazillion HSTs in this quilt (actually 266 of them). I got really sick of squaring them up, but somehow that didn’t translate into me being sick of this quilt.
I like how the back turned out as well. This quilt makes me happy no matter which side is facing up! And a few more reasons to love this quilt: It was my first attempt at spray basting (which I now love), and only my second attempt at FMQ stippling (which I also now love). So in many ways, I feel like this quilt was where I turned a corner and became a “real” quilter.
Thanks for checking out my BQF quilt! Enjoy the festival!
