Amy from Amy's Creative Side is hosting another Bloggers Quilt Festival! I love this festival! It is so fun and amazing hopping from blog to blog looking at everyone's quilts and reading about their story. Talk about inspiration!!
The quilt that I am entering is my Crushed Diamonds quilt that I made for Robert Kaufman's blog, The Swatch & Stitch. I chose this quilt for a few reasons. One being that when I posted it here, I didn't really show it here, I just gave a link to it. I chose this quilt mostly because it has a lot of "firsts" for me in it.
First #1: This quilt came to be because I wanted to make a quilt entirely out of solids. This is my first quilt using only solids!!
First #2: This quilt was my first experience using Robert Kaufman's Kona Crush material! Oh my goodness.....I LOVE this stuff!! You just have to try it for yourself to believe how fantastic it really is!
First #3: This was my very first tutorial for The Swatch & Stitch! Yay! Click HERE for the tutorial. :)
Besides all of that, I just adore this quilt! It's soft. It's a bit heavier than quilts that use your normal quilting prints, and overall, I just love the design.
It looks so much more complicated than it is, but it only uses one block, rotated in different ways....
Turns into this....
A different shot to show the quilting...
This quilt was just an overall joy to put together! I kind of want to make it again...only using red, or maybe purple. :)
