Bloggers Quilt Festival!

by Nova on October 29, 2013

Each season I mean to enter The Bloggers Quilt Festival  & then whoosh the week has flown by & I missed out  again-  it’s been 2 years since I have managed to sneak an entry in. Jeepers.

If you’re a regular reader you will know all about my love of scraps, if you’re visiting  for the first time – Hello, my name is Nova & I’m addicted to scraps of fabric.

So, it should come as no surprise that I am entering the Scrappy Quilt Category with my Scrappy Zig Zags quilt

This quilt was inspired by a pin which lead to a neat little tute which resulted in this quilt. It began as an attempt to slash the scrap stash but truly, it hardly made a dent – surprise surprise!

This one is a real snuggle down memory lane,  it’s full of lovelies & uglies, trash & treasure, oldies & newies, gifted & swapped + some  selvedges – each has a place & a reason to be in it for me. Sometimes that’s all a quilt needs to be. I love it.

I quilted it with a combination of relaxed zig zags on the machine and some hand quilting with Perle thread.

It’s backed with an ikea print & a strip of scraps to make up the width ( & to use up more scraps!)

quilt notes:

  • triangle size 6″ finished
  • finished quilt approx 64″ x 80″
  • backed with an IKEA  print & a strip of scraps to make up the size

Thanks for dropping by, now off you hop to visit all sorts of quilty treats at  the Bloggers Quilt Festival
