Blogger's Quilt Festival!

Amy at www.Amyscreativeside.com is having her annual Blogger's Quilt Festival. Last year I wanted to post my Double Delight but it was still at the longarmer, so this year it is still my favorite quilt so I am posting about it! This was Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt and I enjoyed every step with my online group. I discovered how much I love cheddar colored fabric while making this quilt. And I love it so much that I won't even put it on my bed--which is what I made it for. One of our dogs chews, so for now it is folded up on the treadmill waiting its day.


I remember finishing up the border (which took hours on its own) at Quilt Camp and really being happy that I spent the extra time on the border because it really did bring the design all together.
Join the festival!

Your Double Delight is truly gorgeous! I didn't join in on this mystery and regretted it. I love the cheddar too! Great work on all the piecing and borders--it looks just wonderful. Thanks for sharing your quilt's story :)

Next to the first one Carolina Crossroads, this is my favorite too Andee.

Haha, the cheddar comment cracked me up. We show we are from WI by our cheese analogies, lol. This looks like a very time consuming and intricate quilt!

Wow, it's beautiful! I've never done a mystery, because what if I hated it? But yours is making me re-think this position! It's gorgeous! And the border is great!

Oh my, we have a dog that chews quilts too. You are smart to put this out of the pup's reach. Maybe the dog needs to go to the treadmill.
Thanks for sharing.

What a charming quilt. It has a great antique feel with the cheddars and blues. Great job.
Please come see my 1890 antique schoolhouse quilt and
