Yeah, it’s that time of year again. I enjoy looking through all the quilt inspiration that the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival offers.
My quilt idea all started with this fabric.
First, the idea became a pillow when the Hope Valley line came out. I used Joelle Hoverson’s technique for her Little Bits quilt. I designed it by stacking the blocks and liked the effect so much that I started a quilt. It got pushed aside with the book quilts taking front stage.
My favorite quilts of the year are in the book, or not yet finished, but Split Decision is up there.
As I spread it out fresh from the dryer, I was in love. It went straight to the shop for a class sample, but I’ll look forward to the day when I can lounge under it.
Especially because of its buttery flannel back.
I framed it out with the pink for binding.
I think the loops make it fun.
I’m hoping next year with the book likely being on the shelves to have a real reason to go to market.
