Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry 2 - Small Quilt

I am resharing a couple of my favorite recent quilts today, as entries for the Spring 2014 Blogger's Quilt Festival. Amy at Amy's Creative Side does a fabulous job hosting this event twice a year! The link party is open until May 23rd. Each quilter may enter up to two finished quilts, each with it’s own post, in separate categories.  All you have to do is write a post and link up. There are so many inspiring quilts linked up already!

I am entering my Baby Jane Twister quilt into the Small Quilt category. This quilt measures 48" by 48". This quilt top is based off of my Twister at the Reunion quilt top design, with a few minor adjustments. This quilt is very special to me, because it was my first real commission. When I accepted, I had no idea how intense it would be...because of me, not the client! I really wanted everything to be perfect. I spent 60 hours over a period of a week working on this quilt, so it kind of feels like an old friend! My favorite parts of this quilt are the border and the binding. Those elements really tie the whole quilt together.






Sometimes the quilt backs are just as much fun to do as the quilt tops! As a person with a somewhat unusual name (Taryn), I feel like it is my responsibility to make sure every baby has at least one item with their name on it! :D

You can read more about my process on this quilt at this link.

What an adorable baby quilt, Taryn! I olive the way you put her name on the back with the chevrons, it's super cool!

Very cute!

Ok my dear, I'm not sure if I like this one or the rainbow one more. They are both great!

Growing up as a Carly before the name caught on and never being able to find anything with my name on it (unless it was sharpie'd on my school supplies), I sincerely appreciate your mission! Great quilt. :-)

I really like how you added the name to the quilt

Kathy ... aka Nana said... #

Neat idea to make sure that the name was incorporated! My oldest granddaughter is also named Taryn, so finding personalized things for her is difficult!

So beautiful!

Wendy said... #

oh that's gorgeous! I bet your client loved it. I could never find anything with my name on as a child when every other kid had personalised everything... and my name's not even that unusual!
