Blogger's Quilt Festival: Bree

Time for Blogger's Quilt festival again! I seriously love this festival and all the eye candy that goes along with it every year!
I usually try to post a quilt that has a deep meaning to me. I'm an emotional quilter. This time, though, we're staying light.

My quilt for the fall festival is my Gypsy Dance Quilt!

This quilt has no special meaning to me. I didn't make it for anyone near and dear to my heart. It doesn't symbolize anything. I made it because... I LIKED IT! How novel, right? The fabrics are all stash fabrics that I simply loved. It's bright and lovely and makes me happy! The pattern is available in my craftsy shop, linked on the sidebar. 



My favorite part of this is the quilting. I made medallions in the centers of the latticework, and pebbles everywhere else. Pebbles are time consuming, y'all!

Love the quilting and that red for the background! It's such a fun quilt. Yes, pebble quilting is time consuming, but oh so pretty! I just pebble quilted a quilt and I was dizzy from all the circles!

You know, sometimes I think we feel like we have to have some universe altering reason for making a quilt. But my quilt festival quilt was made for the same reason: because I liked it and I wanted to! And that's more than okay.

Love your quilt: love the colors, love the pattern. Going to file this one away for later. Great job!

Beautiful quilting.....so many pebbles. I am an emotional quilter too....and it is good to let loose and just make a quilt sometimes. Good for you.

I like the movement in this quilt and I admire your wonderful quilting. Your medallion in the center is a really nice focal point in the quilting. Thanks for the advance warning about the pebbles!!! You did a wonderful job on this quilt. Sometimes as quilters we are so busy making wonderful things for others and showing how much we care we forget to take a moment and make something for ourselves. I'm glad you did. :)
