Welcome to my entry in this Spring 2015 Blogger's Quilt Festival. (And please excuse the far from Spring-y photo! This quilt was photographed and gifted at Christmas time.)
All the fabrics in this king size quilt are from Kansas Troubles by Moda and I used the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt book. I made a few tweaks, adding setting squares and triangles to make the blocks larger, and so setting alternating blocks on point.
This quilt was made as a gift for my mother and father and took me about 3 years! I really enjoyed putting the blocks together, it was like an interesting puzzle every time. However, I tend to like chain piecing and letting my mind wander, so this took me a long time to do and I didn't alway choose to do it as it was a brain bender and not the meditative calm of chain piecing and simple patterns. (I quilt to relax!)
Then, I quilted this myself on my home machine! Here is a link to my original post about this quilt if you would like more information. Enjoy all the rest of the entries in the Blogger's Quilt Festival! And please consider casting a vote for me here, in the Large Quilts Category!
