BQF: Warm Cool Quilt

IMG_5757

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!

    Awww, you are definitely a real quilter (and you totally were before this quilt!!!) 🙂 Totally love this quilt, love the variety of fabrics and I love the lack of purple on the front, I think it makes it super unique 🙂

    I love the back as much as the front. I know what you mean abut HST…they are a pain to square up but give such a beautiful result and so many options that they are worth it. Thanks for sharing.
