Blogger's Quilt Festival... Fall 2011

Amy over at 'Amy's Creative Side' is again hosting 'The Blogger's Quilt Festival', thank you so much Amy. So, if you can't make Houston why don't you pop on over to have a look at the wonderful display of quilts on offer!

This is the second time I've entered a quilt for display and have to say that again I am entering my most recent quilt.....I almost always love the quilt I have just finished, I'm afraid that I have very recently posted about this quilt so if you are a regular follower of my blog I must apologise!

This quilt has been waiting for a while to be quilted as I was a bit stuck on how to quilt it but it did eventually speak to me....it's a simply pieced quilt in stack and wack style.  If you look closer you will see I added coloured threads to lift the black background.  My intention was to quilt water lillies in an oriental style but the backing fabric inspired me and my water lillies turned into tudor roses.

This quilt is now permanently hung in my hall, I really think it's time to display more of my work, I am please with how it looks and I think that the curtain pole that I found in my loft has really enhanced the quilt....I used coat hanging hooks (as seen in the photo) so that the quilt would hang tight against the wall.
You can read more about this quilt here and here

Here it is 'Tudor Roses'.
