The 3rd Blogger's Quilt Festival!


It's on again! The Blogger's Quilters Festival, lots of quilty goodness without leaving your chair!

Back in the last festival I featured this quilt. And before that I featured this one. But this year I am featuring these two dolls quilts I made for the Flickr Dolls Quilt Swap #7. I made two, I can never bear posting one away, so I have to make one for myself as well. This post here shows how they came together. I love working in rainbow colours. And Terrie who received the top quilt was happy too.

Thanks for stopping by. Check out all the quilts on display here! See you next time!

Still one of my favorites, Helen!

Leah said...

Lovely, as always :)

Had to stop to comment here - love it love it love it!

I like both of those quilts, always love the colours in that design - has so much movement.

What a good idea of make a second version of swap quilts. Two of my favourite quilts were swap quilts and I got the feeling were unappreciated by the recipients. Oh well, I tried, but I would have like to have kept them. :)

Love these quilts. I can definitely see the wisdom in making two, I wouldn't be able to send it out the door without having one for myself.

Kathy said...

It's a loveley study in color and works well as a color wheel for quilters. The quilting lines show up so well on the white background. It is a marvelous entry!

Karen said...

Just gorgeous! All those triangles tamed into a circle.

Alice.R said...

Beautiful! I'd love to make something like that one day.

wishes, true and kind said...

Great choice(s) for the Festival. I love how each is spinning in a different direction! And I've done the same thing when I've made quilts to be auctioned for fundraisers -- made one to donate and one to keep. Making two quilts at once is faster than making two back to back. Very pretty quilts, Helen!

Leslie said...

wow this is just amazing

whatktmadenext said...

Beautiful! Making something like this has been on my todo list for ages and I really need to do something about it!
