Bloggers Quilt Festival


I'm joining the BLOGGERS QUILT FESTIVAL for the first time over at Amy's blog.

It's a really fun way to view lots of amazing quilts without ever leaving home!

I have been enjoying it for years, so to be entering one of my own quilts for the first time is super exciting!

I call this quilt CANDY KISSES and it is based on the quilt by Material Obsession called Gypsy Kisses. I fell in love with the pattern the moment I saw it. I knew I needed to make it and had so much fun piecing the blocks. The directions called for applique to set the blocks on the background, but I chose to make a template for the background pieces and used curved piecing the set the blocks. I am super thrilled with the results. Thanks for taking a peek!

This is a view of the back:



If you haven't seen enough quilts yet, you can pop over to my other blog at Stories & Pictures
to see lots of my quilts! I'm in the process of moving them over to this blog, but that takes some time as I am finding out!
Enjoy!!!

  1. Great quilt! I've looked at this pattern but put it aside because I'm not fond of doing applique. I hadn't thought of machine piecing the arcs - clever idea. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow, great quilt, it looks like a difficult pattern, contrats on the finish. I like the color choices you made for the keyboard effect. And I especially like the side borders.
