Crossed Paths: Blogger’s Quilt Festival

This is my first time entering the Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy over at Amy’s Creative Side. This is such a fun event and I’m excited to share my quilt with you!
I was lucky enough to be given a little bit of the upcoming Lucky Penny line from Alison Glass before Fall Quilt Market in Houston this fall. I wanted to create a quilt that really accentuated the movement in the ‘Bike Path’ print and this simple layout really fit the bill.

This is a really fun, quick pattern to put together and I enjoyed figuring it out. I’ve already written up the tutorial and I’ll post it next week since I am working my way through my quilt market recaps this week.

This quilt finished at about 48″ x 60″. It is a great throw size.

The back is made up of leftover pieces from the front and some gorgeous Moda crossweave in natural. Making quilt backs is one of my favorite things. I love challenging myself to use my leftover pieces from the front to make the back special, creative, and a little bit of a surprise.

I quilted this myself on my home machine, experimenting with simple figure eights to bring in texture and bring more attention to the prints.

I am very happy with how this little quilt turned out! It is bright with all of the colors of fall, with enough white that I can enjoy it year round!

I’m so glad you visited and I enjoyed showing you my little quilt. I’d love it if you stayed awhile and made yourself at home. I have a few fun, free quilt patterns and quite a few more in the works, if you want to follow along!

Thanks for stopping by!

    The quilting on this along with the directional print give this quilt so much movement. Good job!

    Dolly says:

    I really like this. I’ve been a fan of this pattern for quite a while now, but this fabric, being all the same ‘moving’ print, yet different colors, really makes for an interesting , controlled quilt.

    I mean I REALLY like it. The quilting does give the quilt interesting movement too. Nice job !
