Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2015

I am entering the Blogger's Quilt Festival under the wire!  Today, I am sharing ''Tiles''.  It is a variation of a postage stamp quilt - with 2'' and 1'' blocks.  I have entered it in the ''large quilts'' category.


Tiles will be a quilt-along at Bear Creek Quilting Co. blog in June!  I will be making another version of the quilt for the quilt-along as well :)  If you want to get a head start on collecting your fabrics, this is a 90x90 quilt and takes an entire 40 piece Moda FQB for the front, or 10 yards.  Yes, the entire 10 yards.  If you do not use Moda precut FQ's, please plan for an additional 4 FQ's (Moda's FQ's are generous and we used every inch of them!)  I used ''Ambleside'' and it was just so lovely to work with all the delicate colors and prints.  Love love love!


So enough chatting, onto more pics!  Enjoy!




As you can see, I did a basic diagonal ''straight'' line quilting on every other block.  I wanted to keep the quilting a bit loose on this one because it is a big heavy quilt - there is a LOT of fabric in this quilt!

Love me some post-wash crinkles! <3
