When I heard that the Bloggers quilt festival was on again I just had to get involved this time.
So here's a rehash on the Matjana quilt I finished earlier in the year.
Over a year ago I popped into my LQS and picked up a few fabrics in a ROYGBIV range. I can't do bright orange so I opted for more subdued, apricot tones.
Here's the first quilt I made. I gave it to a dear friend Anna. It's straight out of the dryer, please forgive my wrinkles.
I had enough leftover HSTs to make another twin for this one, so I got sewing. I wanted to mix up the zig zag a bit so pieced the second differently. There were all these neat squares between the colours. I just knew they were screaming out for some intricate quilting.
So off I went, I did spiders webs and swirls and lots and lots of feathers.
We ended up auctioning the quilt to raise funds for Matjana Pre-School in Swaziland. Wonderfully, Anna ended up winning the second quilt, so now she has a pair. I promised her I'd jazz up the quilting on the first so she has two lovely quilts and doesn't have to choose which of her children gets the prettier one.
Thanks for stopping by, be sure to check out the other quilts in the Bloggers Quilt Festival. There are some shit hot ones out there.
