I’m entering “Spring Violets” in the Home Machine Quilted category of this spring’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival over at Amy’s Creative Side. This quilt measures 66″ x 84″. The batting is Warm and White. And, yes, that’s Yuri helping out.
I started this quilt as a stash buster, possibly for donation. I had a lot of purples and greens that I wanted to use up, and I thought of a favorite block of mine, Windflower, which is a variation of Drunkard’s Path.
The flower centers are done with “Rainbows” by Superior Threads. All the other stitching is with “Bottom Line”, also Superior. The violets are quilted with “pebbles” and outlines. I used three different background fillers in the green backgrounds around the flowers. The borders have rings that mimic the “coffee rings” on the batik.
It ended up as a meticulous, lengthy project, especially the quilting, and I’m now too attached to it to part with it. It makes me happy.
See all the entries at the Blogger’s Quilt Festival at Amy’s Creative Side. Voting begins May 22!

I like that block – it’s much easier to piece than drunkard’s path with that softer curve. Your quilt is beautiful!

Amazing!! The pattern and the colours – purple and green, one of my favourites.
Greeting from Germany.
