Blogger's Quilt Festival - Fall 2014 - Vintage Star

It's that time of the year...twice a year during quilt market, Amy over at Amy Creative Side hosts a Blogger's Quilt Festival.  We are allowed to link up two quilts to the various categories and have the opportunity to visit and be inspired by other blogger's wonderful quilts.

My second entry to the festival is Vintage Star which I originally posted about here and is entered into the Original Design category.  

My other entry Oh the Places You'll Go is entered into the mini category and can be found here.

For this quilt I designed the pattern and used mostly Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille for Moda (the line really is scrumptious) with some other Bonnie and Camille fabrics mixed in.  I made the lap version of the quilt finishing at about 60" x 60" and my daughter sleeps under it each night.  

One of the nice things about this pattern is that it is actually very layer cake friendly with each block being formed from 2 layer cake pieces.  Writing this design up as a pattern is on my to-do list :)

I quilted the quilt using a really open paisley swirl type pattern, I like how the curls compliment the straight lines and triangles in the blocks.  
I bound the quilt using a red and pink bias stripe fabric from the Scrumptious collection.  

For the back of the quilt I found the perfect sheet set at Target having a repeating leaf pattern in teal and green for only $13.  I am a big fan of Target sheets as quilt backings.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
