This is the first time I have entered anything to show in Amy's Blogger Quilt Festival. Last fall I found the on-line show and was amazed at the gathering of inspiration in one place and I managed to visit every single entry, although it took awhile.
I am so happy to be able to participate. I almost missed it between being out of town and coming back to a broken computer monitor, but looks like I am going to make it with time to spare.... very little time, but some left all the same.
I am submitting my Rick Rack Rocks quilt.
This quilt exemplifies my quilt work style. I picked a couple charm packs of Authentic by Sweetwater. This was the first charm pack I had ever gotten and I wanted to just work with the squares, but it was not going to end up big enough, so I decided to frame the blocks of squares, then I decided I didn't want the quilt to be square so to add blocks I added some blocks made from strips rather than squares.
When I was done with the top I was not pleased. It looked kinda washed out and blah.... I had some rick rack sitting around for another project, but I had never used it on a quilt. I put the two together and loved it so I rushed to the store to get enough for around the border.
This is definitely not the quilt I envisioned when I started, but I love the way it turned out.
