Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry

Blogger’s Quilt Festival ~ Fall 2013

The Festival has begun! There are so MANY amazing quilt entries. You will be inspired and challenged as you view quilts in 15 categories.

Blogger’s Quilt Festival Schedule:
October 25 – 31 – Linky’s Open & Nominate for Viewer’s Choice
November 1 – 7 – Vote for favorites in each of the categories
November 8 – Winners announced

This piece was entered in the Art quilt category. This was so much fun to make. The plan - incorporate the following techniques in one piece:
  • Free Motion Quilting
  • Decorative Stitching
  • Yarn Couching
There is just as much free motion quilting as there is decorative machine quilting. This project was ideal for learning new free motion designs and experimenting with thread colors as texture.

The Winner is.....

Wow, I won a Baby Lock Grace sewing machine at the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo!
My sister wanted to know how I won. It would be nice to say it was for one of my quilts. But, I just completed an entry form for a prize drawing. I really like the machine’s name, Grace.

Grace is the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.
