Blogger's Quilt Festival!
My entry for the quilt festival is the first semi-conplex quilt that resides on my bed (with a store bought blanket covering it because I have dogs that get on my bed). I sit at admire it quite often when I'm making my bed. I still love it. I made this quilt in 1991 when my oldest son was a baby.
I used paper patterns for this quilt - the ''old fashioned way'', making the patterns then tracing them on the material and then adding the seam allowance. I can't believe how tedious that was and I would never again do a quilt that way - but back then I don't think rotary cutters and rulers were really 'known' yet! I used muslin for the backing and warm and natural batting. I quilted it by machine in a 'stitch in the ditch' and a crosshatching in the borders. Well, here it is in all it's purple and fuscia warmth!
