Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2012!

It is time once again for the Blogger's Quilt Festival!  My entry is my "Stretch" mini wall hanging.
 
Finished quilt measures : 19″x 19″
Special techniques used : hand applique, beading embellishments 
Quilted by : hand quilted by me
Best Category : Applique Quilt, Hand Quilt, Scrap Quilt


It was during the Blogger's Festival Fall 2011 that I realized that I was in a design slump and needed to expand my skills.  I declared that 2012 would be my year to try all new designs and new techniques.  So far, it has been great trying new things.  New things are good - but maybe in 2013, I might declare it to be the year where I finish things (LOL).
 
My word for this year is "Stretch" and I made this mini as part of the Lets Get Acquainted Blog Hop which I wrote about here. 
 
I think it is also interesting to look back at my previous Blogger Festival entries and see how I have stretched my quilting in a new direction.

  3. I read about this lovely mini quilt when I first met you on the blog hop. I think it's the perfect entry to represent you, and it seems that you really have stretched yourself with lots of different skills this year. I'm off to submit my entry now. Good luck!
