Bloggers Quilt Festival Entry #1 – Small Quilts

Hello again everyone! I am so excited to be participating in the Bloggers Quilt Festival Fall 2014 hosted by Amy’s Creative Side. I’ve never joined up with something like this before, and after looking through the posts, it sure is inspiring! What a great way for people around the world to share some of their favorite work. 🙂

Both my entries are ones my current blog followers have seen before. First up, my Texas HST quilt. I designed this quilt many months ago, when I was obsessed with triangles and state shapes. I moved to Texas 3.5 years ago, and I just love how it turned out! I wanted it to be abstract, but true to the shape of Texas. The pattern is available in my shop, and I’m hoping to get a few Texas Quilt Shops to carry the pattern in their stores. That alone is crazy exciting to me, since it initially was just a labor of love for my years in Texas so far.

This baby measures just under 50″ and sadly it is STILL sitting in my dining room waiting to be on the wall. Naturally, all the quilting is straight lines done on my domestic. I think despite the simple quilting it still looks pretty fun!

Speaking of Texas and Quilting, I’m excited to be heading to Houston tomorrow for my first ever International Quilt Festival experience! I hope to post some good pictures when I return. Happy Halloween everyone!

Piece Out!

  1. What a great quilt! I’ve seen scrappy state patterns before but they’re usually cut into the shape of the state after making the center. This one being entirely out of squares and HST’s makes it so cool! I bet a bunch of shops in Texas will be carrying it soon.

  2. Wow, this is so awesome! I’ve seen lot’s of state quilts around but not one of them was so simple yet beautiful as yours. I love that the shape is created by the HSTs themselves, not by cut and appliqué, if that makes sense. I happily casted a vote for you!
