Fun For Friday - Fall Quilt Festival - 2013

It's that time of year again for Amy's blogger quilt festival!

This year I'm sharing the quilt I made to commemorate Hurricane Sandy exactly 1 year ago today.

"Frankenstorm" 





Quilt Stats:
Doll & Mini Cateory
Size 21" x 21"
Storm at Seat pattern - Paper Pieced
Machine Quilted

 I quilted it in a spiral pattern, like the hurricane winds.


The backing is a batik and a vintage piece of Peanuts fabric.


You can see how small it is next to the rotary cutter.

You can use this link to the Doll & Mini Quilts cateogry.  There are also quick links to all the other categories.


Happy Halloween and enjoy the rest of the quilts in the festival.   Thanks Amy!


Happy Quilts and Happy Weekend

  3. vintage piece of Peanuts fabric - that is a new concept, but so RIGHT. Can never find those special fabrics when needed for a 4 year old's quilt. Your quilt is perfect for the time of year and for festival!

  5. It's a tiny storm-at-seas! OMG, I had enough work doing that as a regular sized quilt. I can't imagine doing piecing at that size! Wonderful work!

  10. I will certainly vote for this quilt! I have loved it from the start! Ever since you made this I have wanted to make a mini Storm at Sea. I think the pattern is buried somewhere in my sewing room now! : )

  11. Storm at sea...so perfect. And I got the quilting right away.I love the fussy cuts too. The back is so cute that it could be reversible.
    I have to go look at all the quilts and vote.

  14. This quilt just amazes me with its teeny tiny piecing and perfect colour placement and awesome itty bitty fussy cutting. Circular quilting to symbolise Sandys ways is so clever. I think fun backings are your signature style, Hallloween Peanuts is just perfect!

  24. I'm always impressed by the unique/interesting/surprising/unexpected/just right backings you find and use for your quilts.
    Your Storm at Sea blocks are very impressive, the colors, their placement, the precision sewing, the quilting, and the quilt's name is perfect. It's a very special little quilt, Barb.
    I'm glad to see it again.
