Blogger Quilt Festival


Thanks Amy for your most recent reminder that the Blogger's Quilt Festival entries end tonight. It looks like I'm just going to make it under the wire. I've been so crazy busy this week with Moda Bake Shop and managing my MBS Giveaway that I almost missed out. I'm so glad I was checking out my google reader and saw the post you did today. I look forward to looking at more of the quilts on Mr. Linky. Thanks for all that you do to promote quilting!!! It's so fun!!!


Now on to my entry. I made this quilt for my first grandson Benjamin. He absolutely LOVES this quilt and it was really hard to borrow it back from him so I could wash it and take pictures of it. It was great to see how happy he was to have his quilt back.


The quilt pattern is called Hopscotch by Two Peas in a POD. I'm sorry I haven't found a link yet to their patterns but I will keep looking. I'm quite certain they're local designers.


I bought the material a long time ago before my grandson was even born and I knew the minute I saw it that I needed to buy it so, that I could make a boy baby quilt for my future grandson. It's perfect for a little boy. Don't you think?

Check out the other quilts here. You won't regret taking the time to do so but, give your self some time because there are 611 quilts to look at and I'm currently the LAST entry.

Have Fun and Enjoy the Quilt Show!!!!

I love it Kim! You use a lot of black in your quilts, I am always so scared of black, and every time I try to use it, it just looks so strong. But I love it so much when you use it.

Maybe it will inspire me to step out of my comfort zone and just DO IT!

This quilt is beautiful. Your grandson is smart to love it! :) It looks like it is a 9-patch style of block, is that right?

Shari Knudsen said...

That is a beautiful quilt. I am very impressed.

Jessica said...

isn't that just the cutest quilt ever!!...and i love the backing also!!

em's scrapbag said...

This is the perfect little boys quilt. I love the black with the bright colors. It is my youngest sons favorite combo in a quilt. Two Peas in a Pod does not have a website or means to buy their patterns online. I talked to them about it earlier this year. Carole said she was more interested in being a grandma. But Joni at Quilters Haven has their patterns and will sell them and mail them to anyone interested. They just need to contact her.
