My first festival quilt

Simple Abundance quilt
This is the first time I've joined in the fun of the Blogger's Quilt Festival! My quilt is the one I made for Craig for his birthday this year. It's made up mainly of one of my favourite fabric lines, Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille. Craig had already taken a liking to the large floral print (I know! Got to love a man who appreciates fabric) which I had used in another quilt for a friend. So I knew I had to make one for him that included this fabric. It's a very simple pattern which I designed myself, and the neutral strips are Carolina Chambray - a beautifully soft fabric, I wish I could find some more of this!

I'm so proud of this quilt, and it's now on our bed!

For more beautiful quilts - the thumbnails altogether look spectacular! - head to Amy's! Thanks for hosting, Amy!

  3. This is gorgeous - I must get my husband to read this. He looked slightly overcome by the amount of pink when I showed him the Dolce fabric for the Fresh Modern Bee 2 and suggested it go on our bed . . . .

  5. Hi Danielle,

    Lovely to meet you. I'm dropping in from BQF.

    I LOVE this quilt. I'm a big fan of stacked coin quilts and have done two myself in the last year.

    Love your fabric choices - this quilt is the kind of quilt people fight over to snuggle under! Great job.

  15. It's great :)
    And don't laugh at me but I think quilting is contagious - looking at your quilts and those I could find in your links, and remembering you Mum's beautiful ones made want to try to make something, too. Thank you so much for the inspiration.
