It's that time of year again! Amy Ellis, of Amy's Creative Side, is hosting the Bloggers' Quilt Festival. Scheduled to coincide with Quilt Market, it's a fabulous opportunity to see many (MANY) beautiful quilts as bloggers from all over the world link up and share a quilt. It's an online show featuring hundreds and hundreds of beautiful quilts (301 and counting as I write this post).
I had a tough time deciding which quilt to enter into the Festival this time around. I narrowed it down to two, and decided to feature my most recent finish, Oceanic Supernova. I made it during a Quilt Along hosted by Lee at Freshly Pieced. For those who don't know, a Quilt Along is hosted by a blogger who posts instructions on a regular basis over a certain period and you make the quilt along with other readers who have joined in. It's wonderful to share camaraderie and questions about the pattern, and to see how others are progressing.
Even though it's my favourite quilt, I hesitated because it's my most recent finish and I only *just* blogged about it. Oh well - regular followers, you get to see it again!
For this quilt, which measures around 63"x63" (hasn't been washed yet), I used a pre-selected Fat Quarter bundle of Kona solids called Poseidon. Lots of greens, teals, blues and other oceany colours. The background is Kona White and I love how it makes the other colours pop. Instead of a solid centre, I chose to use some prints from the Mendocino line by Heather Ross. I love the little zing of colour, and the fact that the fabrics stay with the "ocean" theme.
The back is a little zanier than the front but I love it, too.
I hope you enjoyed your visit here! Happy Bloggers' Quilt Festival!
