The Blogger Quilt Festival

Yesterday I got the relieving message the mini quilt has arrived. I am so happy she loves it so let me share this little story with you.

I have never ever tried curves before but I adored them. Evey now and than curves appear in blog land I was just impressed. So when Debbie wrote about her Mango block I thought it is time to give it a try.

I took out some Christmas fabrics I got last year (or was it two years ago?) and started cutting. I was amazed how easy the cutting went and started very confident putting the curves together.

The first plan of quilting did not work out so I went back to straight line quilting. Half circles in the circle going back through the middle. Not even there it was bulky and the needle went over quite smooth.

I tried to make wall hangers on the back to give her a chance to decide what to do. I am waiting to hear if they worked out but someone has to prepare the wall before.

I am happy how it all came together. It was finished in time so she can use it this year for Christmas. I love how the winter-Christmas theme comes together. So why not enter this mini quilt. If you visit for the first time stay a while and have a look around.
