Blogger's Quilt Festival

I love looking through the pictures each time the festival is presented.   It's full of very inspiring photos.   Go to Amy's Creative Side and take a look.  Click the festival button below to see all the great quilts!


My entry is the beautiful Eventide I finished in April of this year.  The pattern is one from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co., and her version was so pretty, I had to copy it using the 3 Sisters collection Luna Notte.   I made this quilt as part of a sew along sponsored by Thelma of Cupcakes 'n Daisies.   Having the sew along really helped to motivate me and keep me on task to finish this quilt by the deadline.  (I'm so bad at deadlines!)

After I finished, I passed it off to my awesome long arm quilter, Jenny at Jenny's Doodling Needle.  Jenny did a fabulous job with the quilting and now my binding is on and I'm loving this quilt even more.





  1. This is such a beautiful pattern - I really love how you used the reds to stand out as vertical borders against the medium tones. And your long-armer is definitely a keeper! Her quilting definitely enhances your perfect piecing!!

  2. Lisa, your quilt is wonderful!!

  3. Oh my, this quilt is just breathtaking! Great job by you both, a treasure for sure. Do you think you'll actually be able to use this quilt? I think it deserves to be in one of those glass cases, where folks can look and admire it but not touch it!

  4. Just GORGEOUS Lisa! The machine quilting is just wonderful !
    Thelma's sew a-long was so much fun !

  5. Fantastic quilt, with especially pretty quilting.

  6. The quilting is phenomenal! And the soft colors are just so lovely!

  7. I could look at this quilt all day. It is just beautiful!

  8. wow this quilt is so beautiful - i can't believe it is so precise. great job. =)

  9. Stunning!!!! I admired your quilt on Jenny's blog too. Gorgeous!!!!
