Bloggers' Quilt Festival - Fall (#330)

It's time for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival! I am participating again! This week, through the end of October, take some time to follow the button, or click HERE, and look at all the beautiful quilts and BE INSPIRED! The button is on my sidebar. (Oh, also be thinking about which is your favorite of several categories, because starting in November, you'll get to VOTE.)

My quilt is called Purple Play. It is a birthday quilt I made for a friend's daughter's golden birthday. My only instruction was to make it purple, and big enough for her full-queen bed. I had a lot of fun putting this together. I made the whole top while at a retreat last winter. Some of the retreat attendees gave me good feedback as to block placement and pattern. (You know how many options there are for Log Cabin.. a zillion! So their opinions were helpful.)

Later it was machine quilted by Diane who is my favorite pro quilter. She does beautiful work! Unfortunately, I do not have close-up photos of the quilting. Wish you could see how beautiful it is.

Beautiful! Saying "purple" really can stump and quilter and you handled it beautifully!
