Bloggers Quilt Festival - Large Quilt Category

I have one more entry for the Bloggers Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. I am going to enter this one in the Large Quilt Category - which means it's perimeter is larger than 241 - it is 280in.

Large Quilt Category


My son and I had a fun time photographing this one.


Our neighbor let us use his tractor - and if you look close - you can see fingers ;-)



Plaids are my favorite - surprise
And I used some of the extras for the back




I did Spiral quilting all over it



And now - it is even bound and ready to snuggle in!
I know a few of you were worried last time that my kids might not have any shirts to wear - 
No worries - I just bought them a few more today - 
and in 6 months I will steal them back for my quilts!  I am nice that way !!

Head over to Amy's Creative Side to the Bloggers QUilt festival and have a Quilt show!

Is one of the criteria for a new shirt that it be a good plaid for a quilt? Just askin'......

I love this quilt, Alycia. I love the plaids you chose, the solid aqua/green, and the simplicity of the pattern. I keep telling myself that a quilt doesn't have to have a complicated pattern to be beautiful -- and this quilt proves it! It's fun that you photographed the quilt on a tractor.

I love plaids and you have some lovely fabrics. I agree with Paige, the tractor makes a wonderful background for your quilt pics.

So pretty, and I also love plaids. The spiral quilting is very pretty. That tractor makes a great photo backdrop. Blogger's Quilt Festival really is a lot of fun. Already following you on Bloglovin', and really enjoy your blog.

Lovely and comfy looking and just in time for the weather change. their shirts served a greater purpose, lol. Nice job photographing the extra large quilt, guys.

I love the green, blue, red color combination. Plaid always makes me think of flannel. Like a flannel shirt this quilt makes me think of cooler days and snuggle up with a book and a quilt for a nice quiet afternoon.

LOL, I love your plan for pre-emptory shirt recycling Alycia. A wonderfully fun quilt and the tractor backdrop is perfect!
