Bloggers' Quilt Festival-Spring 2011

It's that time again...time for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival. I'm a little late to the party but better late than never! :)

I decided to show my Drunkard's Path quilt because it is truly one of my favorite quilts.
I wanted to make a two color quilt, a drunkard's path quilt, and use hanging diamonds quilting since I started quilting over 20 years ago and its all in this quilt. Plus, I really love the way I doodled the free machine quilting-I'm really happy that I doodled right up to the cable.
You can see what I mean in this pix-lots of machine quilting and I love it!

Hop over to Amy's and see all the amazing quilts being shared this week.

What a beauty! Only with one pattern and two colors. Great job and a great inspiration to me.

Sandra said...

Great job, love how you set it together, perfect way to use just a few blocks. Love how they interlock. And the border is just right. Great antique feel. Thanks for visiting and commenting on both my entries.

Your quilt is one of my favorites! I love the brightness of it, and even though it's only 2 colors, it packs a punch. The piecing and quilting are beautiful. You did an excellent job. LOVE it! : )

I love the way quilting looks on a two-color quilt, and yours is a beauty. I'm so jealous of your machine quilting -- it's beautiful!

Just wonderful. How great to finally do all you've been wanting to! Like the two color and the quilting is just fantastic. Those loopy flowers? Are so whimsical. Just perfect. Thanks for sharing and have a great day
