Quilt Festival - Oct 09


Amy at Park City Girl is hosting another Online Quilt Festival. I discovered the last one after the fact and had a great time looking through the links at people's quilts, so am very excited that it's happening again that that this time I can join in.

I'm going to show my couch quilt, as I'm still very new to quilting and it's the first full size quilt I've finished. (images are clickable to see them full size)



The quilt is a hodge-podge of different fabrics, all left over from other things, and is backed with some navy flannelette.



The squares are 4", and the quilting is very basic - stitch in the ditch.



It lives on the back of our couch and has seen a lot of use over the winter months, which was exactly what it was intended for.

  1. Believe it or not, our couch quilt is much like yours. And very much used and loved! We sometimes have to fight over who gets it! Yours is lovely, and I am sure as cozy as ours.

  3. Great basic design.....very eye-catching. And I especially love the thought of the flannel back.......besides the comfort factor, it must keep it from constantly sliding off the back of the couch .
