Blogger's Quilt Festival - Home Machine Quilted Category

Amy at Amy's Creative Side is once again hosting Blogger's Quilt Festival.  It's a great opportunity for bloggers to share their work and to be inspired by others.



I am going to enter the Home Machine Quilted Category (for quilts that have been quilted on a domestic machine).  Ocean Sky is a pattern created by Brianna @ The Iron and Needle.  


You read about my journey here.

All the fabrics were in my stash.  I love how well blue and green play together.


I felt this quilt needed some special quilting and not just an all-around motif.  But...I am not very good with free motion quilting on my Singer, and she does not like it very much.  However,  Sandra @ Musings of a Menopausal Melon gave me some suggestions, and I tried some new things.

There are many times when I've wished for a fancy, electronic quilting sewing machine, but in all honesty, I love my little Singer.  She's sturdy (aka heavy), and she's never let me down.


I think the wishbone motif is my favourite.  I need to try it again.



I encourage you to head over to Blogger's Quilt Festival to see all the wonderful quilts and to vote.

  1. I love the mixture of quilting motifs! I agree, this one needed more than an all-over quilting design to really shine. :) And you can never go wrong with blue and green!

  2. Love it!!! I'm generally not drawn to blue fabrics, but this blue and green together with the white is such an amazing combination. Your quilting looks so good, I'm impressed as I doubt I will ever do anything that fancy on my home machine. Thanks for entering this, glad I got to see it!
