Blogger's Quilt Festival - Zippers


Here is my quilt for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival: "Zippers." I've been thinking about making this for a long time. All the scraps are not the same size. They are all wider than 3," trimmed down to 3" strips. Scraps are about 1.5"-2" high. So you just make long strips. Some are dark, light, dark, light. Some are all darks, or all lights. The only thing to think about is: "Is it dark or light?" Lots of the scraps are novelty fabrics. This is lots of fun. I'm doing a whole series, playing with the placement of darks and lights.


Okay, so click on this link: Bloggers' Quilt Festival, and enter to win a prize and see hundreds of inspirational quilts. This ends tomorrow, so don't dilly-dally :)

This is a beautiful quilt. What an effective use of light and dark scraps. You should be very proud of yourself for just "thinking about this," and making it happen.

I can't tell you how long I sat here looking at your beautiful quilt wondering why you called it "Zippers". Sometimes I really wonder about myself, I seem to be so slow. Very clever and so pretty, Karen!
