Bloggers Quilt Festival - Autumn 2012

Amy's Creative Side

If you haven't visited the Bloggers Quilt Festival yet you need to rush over and browse over 300 quilts all in one place from the comfort of your own home.

Over the last two years I have become a bit smitten with Bonnie & Camille's fabric. It started when I bought two Moda scrap bags online sight unseen. One was Bliss and I fell in love and went surfing the internet for some more. Of course I came to their lines late in the game so there wasn't much left of Bliss but I found some. Then I saw a couple of Farmer's Wife quilts using their lines and I jumped on the band wagon. Then I acquired some Ruby and made Camille's Hopscotch pattern (still in progress) with scraps being added to my Farmer's Wife box. Recently I bought some Vintage Modern to use for the new Fat Quarterly Retreat kinky bee. As those blocks came home, I added the scraps to the box.

When the Vintage Holiday quiltalong started in blogland, it was a no brainer to jump into the remaining Bonnie and Camille fabrics and piece along. I used my favourite Moda white on white for the background. This pattern is simple but effective and has become Lizzie's favourite quilt to snuggle under whilst watching television and is already on display in the lounge even though Christmas is two months away.
