Blogger's Quilt Festival

I wish I had time to get this to the fabulous longarm quilter Judie Krot, and back, before the Blogger's Quilt Festival, but I don't. I really love this quilt made with Authentic fabric by Sweetwater, and wanted to use it for this post.


This is the back, and I'll bind it with black, too.

This quilt came about in stages. First, I made a string quilt. I really liked it, but thought my next one should have more symmetry. Then I made a quilt using Authentic for Bob, and fell in love with the fabric.

Be sure to visit all the other Quilt Festival participants at Amy's.
