Blogger’s Quilt Festival- By Your side Quilt

It’s time again for The Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side. It’s such a fun thing to get to see what everyone’s been making this year!

My first entry is my By Your Side Quilt. It was my second pattern for Quilt Theory.

I designed this quilt to honor the friendships in our lives and all the ‘links’ that bind those friendships together. You can read more about the inspiration here.

I am absolutely in love with the fabrics in this quilt. I used RJR solids combined with five Cotton + Steel Basics, which are pretty much my favorite thing ever.

I had lots of fun quilting this one with some meandering lines that let the quilt design shine. I have a friend who lovingly calls this ‘drunk quilting’. Whatever you call it, I really dig the texture it creates!

This quilt has found a comfy home on the couch at my new house. I love that it has become a focal point in the room.

Thank you for stopping by! Tomorrow I will share one more quilt for the festival that is completely different than this one, but also holds a very special place in my heart.

Happy Sewing, ~L
