Blogger's Quilt Festival - Amalgam Quilt

Have you had a chance to stop by the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy's Creative Side?

AmysCreativeSide.com

There is some beautiful quilts in all categories and some great prizes too. If you are coming from the festival, I welcome you here. Thanks for your interest and I hope you'll enjoy my blog and projects.

I decided to enter my Amalgam quilt in the Original Design Quilts category.
Amalgam Quilt

I've put a lot of thinking into this quilt in the past year and I'm glad of how it turned out. You can read more details on the design here and the making:  herehere and here. I love to play with patterns, solid color fabrics, value and asymmetry. And this design combines it all.

I also wanted to mention that this quilt will be part of a provincial quilt show in a week or so: the CQQ (Courtepointe Quebec Quilts) Salon. If you happen to be near Montreal, come to visit the show. There will be a few quilts from other members of the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild. I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks again for stopping by and don't miss the great inspiration at Amy's Creative Side.

  10. This is such a striking quilt. The depth and texture by using various shades of the same color are really nice.
