Bloggers Quilt Festival...Throw quilt submission

Every year I look forward to the Bloggers' Quilt Festival sponsored by Amy over at Amy's Creative Side.   Last year was the first time I put my toe in the water and submitted a quilt entry.
It was a bit intimidating.  There are some phenomenal quilts out there.  Lots of eye candy and inspiration.

I'm putting my favorite recent finish into the throw quilt category.

I sewed this one as part of the Gen X's Sisters 10 block of month.  I jumped the gun and finished early.  Yup.  I love it that much.  It's very early 80s in its color scheme.

Haha! Love the name :D And I sure remember how important it was when I was in middle school to have a couple of pink and gray outfits . . .

How clever an idea to place the blocks like this. Looks fantastic.

Sarah said...

I love how youve put the blocks in opposing corners of the quilt top. Colours of the 80s are the colours of fashion today, especially for kids I've found. My boys have both picked out high intensity fluro tshirts this summer.

I haven't quite caught up with the modern movement yet because I'm not sure I like modern quilts. And, I don't think I would pick that color combination ever in a thousand years. So, with that said this old lady just LOVES your quilt. If I make a modern quilt it will be like yours. Really.

I love how your quilt turned out! I'm doing this BOM too and am so proud of myself that I'm actually kept up and am ready to sew my quilt top together. Seeing this beauty if a great inspiration to keep me going. Love it!
