Encouraging Words of the Day:
For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. ~ Ephesians 2:10, NLT
"Amy's Creative Side" is hosting the Bloggers' Quilt Festival where we have the opportunity to share quilts we have made and be inspired by all all the great quilts entered. Each person can enter up to 2 quilts and there are multiple categories.
Although this is the 9th festival, it will be my 1st time entering. The quilts I've seen are awe-inspiring and although I am not making award-winning quilts, I have decided to enter two of my efforts.
Entering in the Applique Category:
This quilt was begun in January, 2011 and finished in January, 2013. It's made of 100% cotton which I purchased from various shops especially for this quilt. Every time I saw a turquoise/brown combination, I checked it out to see if it might work in some of the blocks. The blocks are machine pieced and appliqued on my Kenmore. The quilting was also done on my Kenmore.
