Blogger's Quilt Festival 2012!


It is time once again for the  Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side!  This time around I decided to enter my Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt that was started last November and finished about six months ago. I didn't follow Bonnie's color scheme because I was going with what I had in my stash which was green and gold.  As the quilt came together I suddenly realized I had a Packer quilt and being from Wisconsin I was thrilled!  GO PACK GO!

 It was quilted by Ros Atwood and she put in some text which really made the quilt even more special.  Here you can see GREEN BAY PACKERS
 and here GO PACK GO!
 I am Bonnie's Number One Fan (just ask her, lol!)  and I look forward to making her mystery quilt every year--fabric requirements come out on Halloween if you want to get in on making one of her gorgeous designs!  Thanks for letting me show off my Orca GREEN BAY quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival!

That's fantastic! I did Orca Bay too (but it's not quilted yet)and just realized there's a Bonnie Hunter mystery every year... so cool! Love the greens and yellows.

Lol! I love that you committed to the 'fan' urge to work those words into your quilting.

Lovely quilt!

This is such a fun idea...but don't tell my boyfriend because he'll want one for each of his teams too! Beautiful quilt!

This is a great quilt, and your piecing is wonderful!

Love your take on Orca Bay! I'm looking forward to Bonnie's next mystery. Maybe I'll be brave and change the colors this time. Thanks for the inspiration!

It was a really fun idea to turn it into a Packer's quilt Andee, nice coincidence for you choosing those colors. Oh BTW, your cheddar bow ties turned out really well.

Great quilt Andee! So many tiny pieces. So much time sewing. Wonderful!

Kathy said...

Love your colors! This inspires me to finish mine. I used greens, orange, yellow, and neutrals. I don't think I'll have it put together before the next MQ comes out, but yours really does inspire me. Hmmmm. Better get off my computer and look what needs sewn together yet. :) Thanks!
