Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2010

My favorite quilt at the moment is, of course, the one I recently finished.  I loved this fabric line "A Morris Workshop" by Barbara Brackman for Moda when it arrived a couple of years ago.  The Arts and Crafts movement in architecture and decorative arts is a favorite of mine. I chose the pattern of large blocks so the piecing wouldn't compete with the busy prints.

It is a queen-size bed quilt so I had to put it up on the fence outside to photograph it.

Here is a view of the back of the quilt. I pieced together all the remaining pieces from the fat quarter bundle to make this scrappy back.

This quilt was a challenge because it was so big and by piecing the back it was like making two huge quilts!
Big thanks for Amy for this wonderful on-line quilt show!

Hi Gretchen! I love that quilt! I would have a hard time cutting William Morris fabric into tiny pieces too! Karmen

I really like your quilt, it looks homey. But I like the arts and crafts houses, too. It would fit perfectly.
