Blogger's Quilt Festival 2013

My apologies to those of you who are tired of this quilt..... When Jess and I finished it, I had no idea that the Blogger's Quilt Festival  by Amy's Creative Side was just around the corner. It is so fun to see all of the amazing quilts people make! I've always wanted to participate, yet always manage to forget. This quilt is the one that made me go ahead and jump in. 
  For the long version, you can read more here.  The short version is, this was made in four very long days of sewing, for a special couple who are going through a tough time. We needed to send them a hug.
My daughter and I started piecing with no set plan other than ROYGBIV and the lyrics we would applique.
It measures 60 x 60 and is perfect for two to snuggle in. We backed it in a lovely herringbone flannel  from Joann, binding and applique are black Kona cotton, pieced and quilted with Aurifil thread, and we used Nature's Touch by Pellon for the batting. 
We love this quilt so much and are so glad to have been able to make it and send it to such a sweet couple. 
I have entered this into the ROYGBIV category. If you haven't already, go look, there are some amazing quilts there.
Thank you for stopping by!

  6. This is a beautiful quilt (I'm working on a similar one as time and scraps allow) and the story behind it is very moving. I hope Andrew's surgery was successful?

  7. I love quotes put onto quilts! (I have one sitting on my WIP shelf right now that I now want to finish!) A beautiful spectrum quilt, and a touching story behind it.

  8. I. L.O.V.E. this quilt! not only the colors and the multiple prints, but I sang the song right off the quilt! Honestly, when I first read it, I thought you had Photoshopped the words on. What a wonderful comfort this will be to the loved couple ~
