Quilt Festival!

It's time for Amy's quilt show again!
I bet I'll be the VERY LAST to enter my quilt.
:)
There are about 650 quilts already!
That's a lot of quilting folks!

This is a scrappy quilt.
My very favorite kind.
It includes one white strip in most blocks
and a HOST of blues and greens.
I was able to include some old fabric
as well as lots of new contemporary prints!

The binding here from connecting threads
pulls it ALL together!

Of course,
the backing is also pieced.
 
Just a little.

LOVE this blue from Robert Kaufman
called Way out West.

 
This quilt is going to a high school graduate.
I enjoy making and giving these EACH year.
Sometimes I enlist helpers as I get them together.
I had a few of my friends make some of the blocks in this one.
I like to send a little LOVE to the kids
as they transition into that BIG world we call....
ADULThood!

  11. What a great quilt! Including a strip of white in each block gives the quilt such great movement, it looks like ocean waves.
