The quilt I'm gonna enter for Blogger's Quilt Festival this Fall took a long time to make. It's actually a bee quilt, with two bees working on it (thanks again to all from the San Diego Modern Quilt Guild and the Bee Germany who had a hand in this!). I think all in all it was a two year project.
I've always wanted to make a wheel of fortune quilt. I made a test block and realized I need to piece it on paper if this should be halfway accurate. So I made my own template, took a lot of scraps and Kona Snow and sent it out to my fellow bees. I also asked them to substitute some of my scraps with their own to make it more diverse.
The quilting took me a whole sewing weekend. I'm not gonna lie, it was a pain in the butt. But I really wanted it to mirror the blocks, so I just bit the bullet.
The polka dots on the back were donated by my co-worker. And since she
had a baby two month ago, I conveniently had a gift for her. And no, it
was not hard to give this one away, despite all the work. I know it is
in a place where it will be treasured, and that's all that matters.
I will enter this in the Scraps category. From what I've seen so far, it will be in excellent company there!
