We'll I am back from Quilt Market and wouldn't you know, it's Bloggers Quilt Festival!!!! Yippee. I promise to do a little Quilt Market recap soon, but for today and tomorrow, I would like to share some of the quilts I made for Market that will also be my Bloggers Quilt Festival quilts :)
Today I am excited to share, Mellow Yellow :) I created this quilt for the lovely folks at Art Gallery Fabrics. I had so much fun playing with all of those wonderful warm tones, you just can't help but smile at them.
They are like a splash of sunshine and here it is all laid out in the sunshine ;) Doesn't it just make you want to have a picnic ;) The design was created by the fabulous Laura Grosso of Art Gallery. And I think you would agree with me that it is spectacular :)
Seriously, I think this quilt could not have been more perfect for me. If you have been around for a bit, you know I love flying geese!!! (I make them using the No-Waste technique, you can find a tutorial here ;) So a quilt made entirely of flying geese and then a whole ton of perfect points to match. Fantastic!!!! It really was so fun to put together.
Obviously, the quilt got it's name from the fantastic prints I was using. I wrote a list back here of each of the lines these beautiful yellows were from. The backing was from Leah Duncan's Meadow collection and was the perfect finishing touch :)
When it came time to quilt, I decided on some wavy lines that run parallel to the geese. I love the way it just makes your eye flow with the design. So fun!! And quilting this on the long arm was so incredibly relaxing, just back and froth and back and forth. Good Times!!
And here it is, hanging in the Art Gallery Booth at International Quilt Market. I am so happy with the way it turned out and I can't wait to make another one, but I am thinking in purple for my purple sewing room ;) Yippee ;)
Thanks for stopping by today, and be sure to pop on over to the Blogger's Quilt Festival to see all of the amazing quilts in each of the categories ;) Mellow Yellow is in the Modern Category ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
