Blogger's Quilt Festival - Hand Quilted Category


I've entered my Stash Baskets quilt into the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side - 

72 x 84
I've done regular hand quilting in the ditch between blocks and did big stitching in perle #8 navy thread. 


I actually used a 10 inch Cake Stand block but switched direction on the two HSTs closest to the basket. 
I also used a variety of fabrics from my stash in blues, purples, reds and yellows. 


It was a lot of fun finding things to put in my baskets. I hate to admit I had all these things to fill the baskets already in my stash too. 


I enjoyed big stitching but need to work on keeping my stitches even. 

After a go in the washer it didn't fall apart so there must have been just the right amount of quilting. 


This was a lot of fun to make and to quilt.  
I'm ready to do more hand quilting!

I love all the vibrant colours in this quilt. Your hand quilting looks lovely too. The big stitches with Perle 8 give quite a different look to traditional hand quilting.

That block is definitely on my to-do list ... and seeing yours is making me re-think its position on that list. ;-) What a beautiful quilt!

Very colorful. And I love the fabric you used to fill your baskets. It gave me an idea to use up my leftover Farmer Market fabric. Thanks for sharing.
