Blogger's Quilt Festival!

It's that time of year again!  The Blogger's Quilt Festival is so much fun! There are so many fun and beautiful quilts to admire.  I can spend hours looking through all the links.

I wanted to share my New Wave Love quilt that I made this summer. 


This pattern came from one of my favorite blogs Oh, Fransson!

And the fabric came from a sweet lady on Etsy plus some Kona Khaki from Joann.


I used 12 fat quarters, but the dimensions didn't quite work out the way the pattern explained.  I like to prewash my fabric, so once i did that, I couldn't get the full 9" shape.  8.5" works just fine and left me enough extra for 2 more rows!
 

I pieced the back with leftovers and an extra half yard of my favorite Amy Butler pattern.  Then, machine quilted in the ditch to make a beautiful wave design on the back!  This was the first quilt I've made using my walking foot.  What a difference!!!

Here's the label that I made.  This is the first time I've ever used a selvage!  I think it looks great!


I can't get enough of this quilt!!
