Inspiration

As you know from my last post, my Hexie quilt is in Blogger's Quilt Festival  (in the Wall Hanging category).  

hexie quilt finished!


But I'm also delighted that two(!!) of my other blocks ended up in some really, really amazing group quilts quilts in the Festival.

I was asked to add a block to the Baby Pink Penguin Quilt organized, sashed and quilted by Krista of Poppyprint.  Most participants made two blocks, but I just made one since the blocks were due during my move.  The finished quilt is here (Ayumi's photo).  And Krista's Festival post is here.

And my potter's studio block was part of Amy's (of During Quiet Time) fabulous, fantastic Artist Studio quilt.  Amy's Festival post is here (seriously, my favorite quilt of the year by far--go click NOW!)

Art Studio Theme


I'm so proud to be a part of both of these amazing finished quilts. In recent days I've been saddened by some of the, in my opinion, hideous changes to flickr. But these finished group quilts help me to remember why the flickr community has been so great.  The inspiration that I get from working with uber talented people and building off of their ideas is invaluable.

So, with that said, if you haven't had inspiration overload already, go check out more of the entries in the Bloggers Quilt Festival.

I'm off to do some quilting, quilt back sewing and more basting.  I'm working on three quilts right now and I just finished my first sewn shirt for me!  When I get a minute to take some pictures, I swear that there will be a lot of posts happening here.

Love your potter's studio block! My DH is a potter, so that really stikes a chord here. :)

I completely agree with you re: Flickr. It is hideous! Yuck - can we go back to what it was before?

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my Minimalism quilt. Glad you like it!
