Bloggers Quilt Festival
Today is the start of the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side blog. This is a great opportunity to go a see some very awesome quilts.
I am entering the quilt "Boo" which also happens to be my very favorite right now. The size is 37 x 37, completely fused and machine quilted by me. After the faces were made I used a button hole stitch or a straight stitch and applied them to the backgrounds. The quilting is very simple to not take away from the cool faces!
The secret ingredient to this quilt is to round up 4 kids, hand them some scissors, fused fabric and let them create to their heart's content! My 4 grandchildren are the artists who came up with these awesome faces.
Yes a pumpkin can have hair!
and look a little bit like ET!
A purple uni-brow is so in fashion!
Most of all they all had fun! Fallon 9, Griffin 7, Elliot 5 and Maddy 5, my budding artists!
Next we might try some snowmen or santa claus, the ideas are endless.
