Bloggers Quilt Festival....Catnap Blanket
A couple times a year, Amy over at Amy's Creative Side hosts a Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Every year, I debate whether or not to post.  This year, I am!  I'm entering this one in the Handquilted category.

Indian Blanket quilt

This quilt is one of my all time favorites.

Not only does it feature Lizzy House's Catnap (and she's one of my all time favorite designers), there is something enticing to me about the color combination.

The design is Rachel's from Stitched in Color.  I'm taking her Angled class.  I'm getting comfy with triangles.  I definitely see more in my future.

I hand quilted this in perle, trying to find colors that blended (without vanishing) into the fabrics.

It's approximately 64"x70".
