Bloggers' Quilt Festival - Spring 2011

It's that time again. Time for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival hosted by Amy Ellis from the blog Amy's Creative Side. I love sharing one of my quilts during this Quilt Festival. It's a way to meet new to me bloggers, blogs, quilters and quilts.  I was not sure which quilt to share this year. Most of the quilts that I've recently completed have been on my blog numerous times. Last weekend I decided to hang a small quilt in my kitchen area. It dawned on me that this is a completed quilt that I have not shared. 
Don't you just love the bright colors in this quilt? Each time I walk pass this quilt hanging on the wall in our entryway, I smile. It's a Happy Quilt!  The pattern is Giggles by Tammy Tadd. I had the opportunity to make this quilt as a shop sample for a local quilt shop, but was able to keep the quilt once it was no longer needed.  I don't normally make a Bright quilt. This one has taken a long time to grab me, but I'm loving it more and more now that it's displayed.


There is still time to enter one of your quilts in the Bloggers' Online Quilt Festival. Amy has awesome sponsors who have donated generous prizes. Check here to learn more.

We are so different in that I would always use brights in every quilt if I could. This one is just in the color sweet spot for me. I love it.

Deb said...

I love your quilt! Brights are what I like to pick for my quilts, too! Thanks for sharing this one!

What a fun bright quilt. It reminds me of clothes in a James christensen painting or what troubadours might have worn in medieval times. Great materials. Love border and binding. Just perfect. Thanks for sharing and have a great day
