Quilt Festival - Spring 2009

Hi everyone, Park City Girl is hosting the first ever online Quilt Festival. Click here to see all the wonderful quilts in blogland. My contributions to the quilt festival is my "Tumbling Block" quilt. I made this quilt for my daughter. It is all hand pieced and hand quilted. It is the first quilt that I did inset seams. It was a very big accomplishment when I got it all done. It took me 5 months to do. I really love the way it looks. I hope you like it too. Happy Stitching!

I love this quilt! I too hand piece and quilt. I find it very therapeutic. Just beautiful!

I love this style quilt. Hand quilted. Booyah. I cross stitch, so I understand the hand stitch is relaxing.

Muddling Through said...

That is a beautiful quilt and that you hand quilted it all is very impressive!

Shawn said...

It turned out beautiful and I think 5 months is fast for a quilt like yours, good work!

Bunny said...

Your quilt is beautiful, and hand quilted I really admire you. Way to go.

What a beautiful quilt. Is this the one in your header? I was just thinking how much I like that one -- it's gorgeous. One more for my want-to-do list, I think...

Nanci said...

Oh wow, this should be in a magazine. It's perfect. Just perfect.

Marit said...

This is a beautiful quilt. All that insert seams are a bit scary to me, but I love the pattern! Thank you for your nice visit, too ; )

Vicki said...

Gorgeous. I love that pattern and want to make one like it someday.

Beautiful. This is not my favorite pattern to do, although I like the pattern. It's not an easy pattern to do. Yours turned out incredible.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Simply a beautiful quilt - and especially since it was hand pieced and hand quilted. You have one lucky daughter!

Quilt Pixie said...

having recently completed a quilt top using inset seams I have a new found appreciation for tumbiling block. Your's is wonderful with such an assortment of fabrics.

"Tumbling Blocks" has just been added to my list of quilts to make. Thanks for sharing! It's a fabulous quilt.

hetty said...

Love your tumbling blocks! Did you use the English paper piecing method? Perhaps I don't understand what inset seams are. This is not an easy quilt to put together. I applaud you for your beautiful work!

Mary L. said...

I don't like it........I LOVE it! What a great quilt!

Millie said...

Wonderful quilt. Hand pieced, hand quilted... amazing! Inset seams... I have such trouble with those (so I avoid them!). Great job!

Lala said...

Way to go girl. I am so impressed with this quiltand that you did by hand, amazing. Your daughter is one lucky girl.

Kari said...

The quilt is beautiful! I think you went pretty fast to get it done in 5 months (at least compared to how slow I do hand work).

Quilt Rat said...

This is one of those quilts you never tire of looking at. Great job!

Mary said...

I love this quilt! One day I'd like to make a scrappy Tumbling Blocks quilt and I hope it comes out as lovely as yours.

stitchinpenny said...

Love your quilt. I admire that pattern from afar, because I have no idea how one would pick the fabrics to creat the shadowed look. you did a great job.

Becky said...

That is just beautiful. Hand stitched AND hand quilted. I am very impressed. It's a treasure for sure.

Diane J. Evans said...

It's beautiful! Thank you for sharing :)

nanann said...

wow, I could never hand piece -- I have one I've been handquilting allegedly for years, and can't even get that done, so I really can't imagine handpiecing! Thanks for sharing -- great quilt! (and *love* the spring applique for your bag swap down below)

Sharon said...

You hand pieced it!! Bravo!! It is absolutely lovely!! It's on my list to make a tumbling block quilt. Your quilt certainly has inspired me to look into it. Thank you for sharing your quilt.

It's absolutely lovely!! Hand piecing makes patterns like this so much easier to achieve.

Love the colours you used.

Kelly, Cotton Charm said...

What a lovely quilt--your daughter is a lucky girl. I also loved your spring applique on the bag you did for the swap. "Sew" many cute things on your blog!

I love that pattern. I've only ever made a tablerunner using it.
