Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry


It's time for the Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival! 

If you are a new visitor to my little blog- welcome!  I have enjoyed sewing since my childhood days and have recently started a little longarm quilting business.  This blog features both- my various sewing projects and my longarm quilting. 

Here is my entry, Pieced Scrap Borders from Red Pepper Quilts.  (Free Tutorial Here.)  I started this quilt about a year ago (posted here and here) and finished it this summer.  (posted here)  My version has an added border.  I just love it!  I used up a lot of scraps with this one.  The white fabric is from an old bed sheet, and the back was a large piece my sister picked up at a garage sale.  The only fabric I actually bought was the binding. 


I quilted free-motion feathers on it.  If I were to quilt it again I think I would have picked a more contemporary design that would match the pattern better.  But I was really digging feathers at the time I guess! 


A peek at the back.

Great quilt - i love the fact that you used so many scraps. One day I dream of making a quilt entirely from little scraps like that...but I think I need to accumulate more scraps for that to happen! =)

The quilt is wonderful. I love your fabric stash that allowed such a great combination for the pieced edges. You did a great job with the feathers.
