Bloggers Quilt Festival Fall 2018

Hello and Welcome!

I am happy to be participating in Amy's Creative Side Bloggers Quilt Festival.   Click here to see all the entries and enter a quilt.

Snow Flower and The Secret Fan
This was my first One Block Wonder quilt.  I will definitely make another one because it was so much fun!

Close up of the machine quilting.  I used gold silk #100 thread.
 My sweet chocolate lab, coco, modeling with it.
 I used my fan stencil to quilt fans on the black borders.
 Here it is hanging in the Brownstone Quilt Show Fall 2017.
I am currently working on a mini version using the leftovers.
These little blocks will finish at 2 1/2" across.  Good Girl Coco.
Thank you for visiting my Blog today to see my entry.  Have fun visiting the other bloggers at Amy's Creative Side.

  6. It is a beauty, Barb! You combined just the right elements in your fabrics, border, and quilting patterns.
    Can't wait to see that mini completed!
    Coco's modeling job appears to have exhausted her. :)

  7. Love it! And of course I love the border quilting. Maybe you should make a vest for Coco with your mini blocks! It would really show off beautifully on her and I'm sure she would love it!!

  14. I've never made a One Block Wonder but am always inspired when I see one. I really like the color scheme and the way you arranged the blocks. What a beauty!

    I like your little one too but don't think I could even see pieces that small! Looks like fun, though. I like little blocks but I also like big quilts.
