Blogger's Quilt Festival

Every single time I see that the Blogger's Quilt Festival is going on, I mean to enter something. But then I forget until the deadline passes. And I almost did it again this time! But now that the sugar-high Halloween bats have finally crashed, I'm entering my scrappy Japanese x&+ quilt at the last minute. It's hands down my favorite quilt I've ever made. 





It's made entirely of scraps that have been accumulating since I began sewing at all, way before I made my first quilt last year. Each one has a sewing memory tied to it. You can read a little more about it in my original post here






This quilt has seen A LOT of enjoyment and cuddling since I finished it in September! 

Quilt Measurements: 68"x 52"
Special Techniques: Used Amy's x and + block tutorial, made from only scraps.
Quilted by me on my DSM with heavy straight line quilting.
Best Category: Scrap Quilt 

You can now go here to nominate mine in the scrap quilt category. It's #599. Thanks!


Make sure to check out the festival post, for about a gazillion inspiring quilts.
