Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013

This summer I was honored to be featured on the Moda Bakeshop. Since Christmas is less than 60 days away I decided to enter my quilt Into the Woods in the Fall 2013 Blogger's Quilt Festival.


The pattern features pieced trees and a variation of the split rail block. As I was figuring out how to lay out this quilt my husband suggested using my light fabrics in the center of the blocks so that it looks like snow flakes. I absolutely love the effect it creates.


The quilt finishes 70"x56". For the binding I chose a sugar cookie print. It's so much fun to see all of the cookies wrapping around the edge of the quilt.

I have a weakness when it comes to hot cocoa. It's my comfort food year round. When I saw fabric covered in hot cocoa I knew it needed to have a huge role in my quilt and so I chose this fabric for the background, and used the extra pieces from the jellyrolls to add a small pieced embellishment.



For the label I cut one of the extra blocks on point and did sashing with one of the extra jellyroll pieces.


Head on over to Amy's blog and check out all of the amazing quilts.
