This post is about a quilt I have entered in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival Spring 2015. I have decided to participate after reading a post written by Lara from BuzzinBumble. She writes that the Festival is more about community and sharing than about competition. I can only agree. And thank her for writing those words that prompted me into action.

Here are the important dates regarding this Blogger’s Quilt Festival Spring 2015:

May 15-21 Entries

May 22-29 Votes

May 30 Winners announced

I have entered my Lavender for the Baby quilt in the Small Quilt category. It measures 58,5 x 63,5 cm / 23″ x 25″. This quilt was embroidered by hand (the lavender), pieced with the sewing machine and quilted with my precious Janome Quilt/Decor (using two different stitches). The binding was sewn on the front with a sewing machine and sewn on the back by hand. A fun and opportunistic use of different techniques!

    • Thank you, Correen! I appreciate your vote and it makes my day to know about it!
      I just went to your blog for the first time and saw gorgeous pictures with delicious-looking food… I now follow you on google+

  1. Oh France, I am so touched that my words had that effect on you.
    You frequently move me with the way you write.
    I love pink and green together and this quilt is so lovely, as well as unique. I love the different stitches you uses, but most especially your lavender embroidery. I grow and dry a bit of lavender every year and you have captured it beautifully with your stitchery.

    • Thank you, Lara, for your compliments! I know you have good taste and your praising words about my embroidery make me happy.
      Lavender is so easy to grow. My bushes have just started to come back to life. Yours must be green now. 🙂

  2. What a stunning little quilt – I’ve never seen anything like it – it’s beautiful! Reminds me of preppy plaid. Crisp and colorful. Good luck in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival!

    • Thank you so much, Cynthia! Reading your words of appreciation makes me happy! I see how it reminds you of preppy plaid… It didn’t cross my mind. But thanks for telling me. It’s always interesting to know how differently people see the same thing. 🙂
