Online Quilt Festival


Amy at Park City Girl is hosting an on line quilt festival. Here is my entry.

This is Old Tobacco Road designed as a mystery by Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville.com. There are lots of these quilts out there so it is not so original like most of the other work at this quilt festival, but it is my favorite. Maybe its the colors, maybe its because it was such a surprise, maybe its all the little pieces? I just really like this quilt. I have decided to give it to my SIL but can not bear to part with it yet. After I enter it into the local quilt show in September I will ship it to her.

I used free motion quilting on my regular Viking.


Enjoy the show.

Tamara, I LOVE this quilt! I loved it from the first you posted. The colors are gorgeous and all the little bits have come together so BEAUTIFULLY!

Your generosity is amazing! When I finally finish all those HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of HSTs I'm not giving it away for anything!

Your SIL is VERY lucky!
Cheers,

every quilt is original :) yours is beautiful, Im notg sure i have the patience for such small piece cutting, plus i think they would get lost in my apt!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Beautiful! So many pieces, such use of color---I love it! Envy folks who can do traditional and make it SING! (I'm an art qulter---my world is, well, diferent!)
You have made an exceptionally well executed quilt!

Love your quilt, rich colours, great design and quilting

Debbie said...

I started this mystery quilt but there were just so many pieces! I turned mine into a little wallhanging and I love it. Your complete version is beautiful and I love the colors and the quilting on it. Giving quilts away is hard for me too, but at least you can visit this one at your SIL. Thanks! Debbie

Janet Brady said...

Wow! Who would ever believe you could get such a visually interesting pattern with just four squares and 1/2 square triangle pinwheels. Thanks for the close up so I could understand the construction. Awesome job!

jlk said...

Look at all those teeny pieces! I love the quilting, too.

Granny Lyn said...

Oh, how I love that scrappiness! the colors are perfect! no wonder you're proud of it!!
