BLOGGERS QUILT FESTIVAL

This my year I am showing a quilt I made last year out of my very precious FMF and KJR fabrics by Denyse Schmidt. Believe it or not, I still haven't quilted this quilt, the reason is simply that I can't find the right fabric to use for the backing. Now with Denyse releasing her range at Spotlight hopefully next week, I should be able to find a suitable print for the back.
I chose pinwheels as I really wanted to showcase each print to it's full advantage. The small pinwheels were added at the last minute to add a little bit of quirky interest to the quilt. The scrappy border was also a last minute addition. This really was a "add as you go" quilt with no real set in concrete plan in place.
Come on over to Amy's blog and see the awesome quilts shown in this year's Bloggers Quilt Festival.

  16. The pinwheels are bright and colorful! You don't need to back it with fabric by the same designer! Try something else!
