Modern Grace - Blogger's Quilt Festival entry

I just love the Blogger's Quilt Festival!  I look forward to it every fall and spring.  It is so awesome of Amy to host it, as it gives us a chance to show off our work, but more importantly view the quilts of others.  I have found so many inspirational quilters through the festival.  I hope you will too.  Please visit the main page on Amy's Creative Side and start drooling over all the quilting eye candy.  Also, don't forget to return on November 1st to vote for your favorites in each category!

For my first entry this fall, I am submitting this baby quilt that I made for Grace into the Modern Quilts category. Thus, the terribly unoriginal name for this quilt: Modern Grace.

Discontinuity 2

The pattern is called Discontinuity by Emily Cier at Carolina Patchworks.

As you can see, I quilted the dickens out of it, but it sure was fun to try out some new designs, and it gave the quilt a lot of texture.

Here is another shot, close up:

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

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!
