Blogger's Quilt Festival :: Fall 2012

Thanks for all of your comments on my finished quilt. I decided to enter it into the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by the very lovely Amy @ Amy's Creative Side. Thanks Amy!

For anyone new visiting from the festival, Welcome, here are some stats on the quilt. For my friends who have already read about my quilt, please indulge me one more time :) Thanks!

I started this quilt in January 2012 as part of the Hand Pieced Quilt-A-Long I hosted. I wanted to learn how to hand piece and so that is how it began. I took my time with the pieces in each block as I marked them for stitching, sewed tiny stitches to put each piece together. The sashing and borders are all attached by hand. It is hand quilted. The binding is attached to the front and back by hand. The only electrified thing that touched this baby was an iron. I mentioned in my previous post that we were without electric for over a month collectively this summer and my hand pieced quilt was perfect to work on in that situation. I also love that it was part of a quilt along and many people tried their hand at hand piecing, literally :) This is absolutely my favorite quilt to date. I feel such a sense of accomplishment when I look at it. I also plan to incorporate much more hand work into my sewing life. It's so satisfying!

Lovely! I love hand piecing, but as i also love knitting & embroidery, my time is constrained, still i carry projects where ever i go & get in a few stitches in stolen minutes.
I love your colors, and you've included some of my favorite block designs. Seems to me you have worked up a wonderful size for a hand-pieced project!
I found your blog through the quiltmakers blog hop & will add you to my regular bloggy stops... Plus, I'll go back through your earlier posts to pick up some handpiecing tips & techniques! Thanks so much.
