Bloggers Spring Quilt Festival

Oh, it was so difficult deciding which quilt to feature for the Bloggers Spring Quilt Festival.  Did you know this is the thrid Festival Amy has hosted?  Isn't she wonderful!

Well, back to the quilt - stacked coins I made last year.  This still remians my favourite and surprisingly it is the Teenage Diva's fave too!


I had just a single charm pack 'Dandelion Girl' and a whole load of white on white.  I had a count up to see how far the charm pack would go and just went for it!  I was fortunate that I had a piece of yardage to use for the binding from the same range which tied it all together. 

Why to I love this quilt?  It's simplicity ... 

... the fact that it took this all over meandering feather quilting beautifully.  Just so you know the thread is from Superior Threads Rainbows range and is called 'SeaShell', I love how subtle it is....

... and I love that I had exactly the right amount of this fabric for the back!  Sometimes things are just meant to be. 

Dont' forget to head over to Amy's blog and check out the rest of the quilts in the Festival, it's a wonderful array with some amaizing stories too!  Enjoy!

It is really beautiful, and the way you had extra yardage for the binding means it was meant to be made.
