i believe in the colour wheel ~ i believe in ME ~ AMY'S BQF fall 2013


WELCOME to the BLOGGERS QUILT FESTIVAL hosted by amy ellis from amy's creative side

my quilt was inspired by by cheryl  i organized my scraps by color to make a few colorful charity blocks for the flooding in southern alberta this year...and i fell in  love with this block xo
the slab pattern and inspiration came from one of my favorite improv books ~ sunday morning quilts

one block led to another and oops i accidently started another quilt
 i machine quilted it with cathedral windows by j. schick from digitech and finished it perfectly with a striped binding




i used a recycled duvet and appliqued " i believe in the color wheel ~  i believe in me" with pieced  lakehouse letters


 each block measures 15 " ~  i made 20 blocks in total and  pieced them 4 across 5 down ~ finished quilt measures 60 by 75" more here


i love my canadian block xo


one big happy cuddle scrap quilt FINISH just for ME xo


i quilt a lot....mostly for others with my long arm business BUT i love to make my own quilts too...and most of those are given away to someone special SO i love that this one and this one are for ME !

OODLES OF MORE QUILTS HERE AT THE  BLOGGERS QUILT FESTIVAL~ CHECK OUT THE AMAZING COMMUNITY OF ONLINE QUILTERS...every spring and every fall i am super inspired and ALWAYS find new and exciting blogs to follow.  thank you to amy for organizing xo pam

  9. Beautiful and fun quilt! Great scraps and I really like the "slab" block. I think this needs to go on my "bucket list" of quilts to make. Glad you are keeping this one!

  10. Scrappy quilts hold such great memories. I love this quilt and like the fact you did some selfish sewing.
