Scrappy Quilt: Blogger's Quilt Festival 2016

This week kicks off the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy's Creative Side. There are multiple categories and the winner of each group gets a prize from the sponsors! It is a great way to view people's finished quilts, get ideas for quilts of your own, or share your finished quilts for a chance to win!

Today, I want to share with you my entry for the Scrappy Quilt category. This is my son's Spell It With Moda quilt! As you may notice, this is also my most recent quilt finish that I blogged about a few weeks ago. But, if you're visiting from the Blogger's Quilt Festival and not a regular reader this may be new to you! :)

If you love my quilt, please nominate me for the Viewer's Choice award!!


Details:

I purchased the pattern for this Spell It With Moda Quilt from Fat Quarter Shop. I chose the printable PDF version and used the handy quilt layout diagram as a coloring sheet to plan my design.

I used crayons (my daughters LOL) that coordinated with my fabric choices and colored in the letters to ensure it had an evenly scrappy look and not too many of the same shades were placed next to one another.


Fabric

I chose a Modern Minis Rolie Polie (half a jelly roll) by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs. A few of the strips were too light to use with my cream colored background fabrics so I grabbed some various Bonnie & Camille prints from my stash to throw in as well.

And the binding is SUPER scrappy! I used tons of scrap fabrics fro my stash and leftover jelly roll strips from various lines to make a double fold quilt binding. It features prints from Bonnie & Camille, Lori Holt, Alison Glass, Maron Sutton, and many more!



The Quilting

My favorite part (although I love the entire quilt) is by far the long arm quilting that River House Quilting did on this beautiful ABC quilt! I chose a numbered long arm design called "Count Your Blessings" which features numbers 0-9 in various sizes all over the quilt. I love, love, LOVE it!



I may share more quilts throughout the week for the Quilt Festival! Hope you'll stop in and see! Thanks for visiting :)
