My Madeline

In the spring of 2009, I participated in the first Bloggers' Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy's Creative Side. It's become a tradition to enter a quilt among the hundreds of other amazing entries. While the Quilting World is at Quilt Market, Amy gave us a way to enjoy a few days of quilt gazing. I also want to thank crazyMomquilts Amanda Jean for her Finish It Up Friday challenge and the incentive to "Get them done!"

This Schnibbles pattern was one I made and never quilted. So this week my goal was to quilt Madeline, and finish this quilt.



I don't like to mark my quilts, so I do most of my quilting with a walking foot.

Foolish Feathers said...

I will have to look up a "walking foot" I have heard it mentioned a few other times on the blogosphere, but I only know how to free-motion quilt. I love how uniform you were able to make you quilting, definitely time for more research!

Allie said...

BEAUTIFUL!!! Oh you did a great job on this one. I'm afraid I'm going to miss the quilt festival this time around....just haven't had any time, and I can't think of a single thing to enter, lol! But I'm so glad you entered yours, it's lovely!

I really like the quilting on this - great job! Thanks for sharing! =)

Lisa at Sun Naturals said...

Nice! I never thought to try the walking foot on curved lines. I'll have to play with that.

Doniene said...

Lovely rich colors for my all time favorite pattern - stars!!

Linda said...

Love the colors, always a nice combination, it makes your Schnibbles pattern stand out more. I've recently purchased some of Miss Rosie's Quilt books, and am looking for the best pattern to make next, I've already done "Long Tall Sally", and it took me for ever. Did the piecing on this take you long? Nicely done.
