ROYGBIV quilt - a Blogger's Quilt Festival entry

Welcome to those of you visiting from the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side.  I would like to present my entry in the ROYGBIV category (or the Rainbow category as I like to call it).

Doll quilt turned wall hanging or sewing mat

I made this quilt for my dear friend, Benta, a few months ago.  The pattern is NY Beauty Circle of Flying Geese by Better Off Thread.  (you can get it in various places including HERE at Craftsy).  I added pockets, a thread catching bag, a loop for scissors (per request) and some loops at the top for hanging.

As you can see, I quilted the daylights out of it, but it was so much fun!

I also added a little message to Benta in the center using some Rainbow variegated thread.  Friends and quilts really do make life more colorful!

Here are the Quilt Stats:

Size: approximately 22 inches x 28 inches
Pattern: NY Beauty Circle of Geese by Better off Thread, plus a little pocket of my own design
Quilted by: ME!  I used white So Fine thread by Superior Threads, and a Rainbow variegated thread also by Superior Threads

I hope you will consider my entry.

Thank you for stopping by!

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
