Blogger's Quilt Festival - Professionally Quilted

It's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side.  This is a twice a year online quilt festival {a delicious feast-for-the-eyes}and coincides with the Spring and Fall Quilt Markets.  It is a great chance to see some amazing quilts all in one place.  So. Much. Inspiration.

I have only entered once before so I thought it was time to enter again!  Why not right?  I am entering my "King Kong Wonky" quilt.  This is a super-huge bed quilt that was started at a wonky log cabin class with Quilt Dad!   

Debbie Holland quilted my quilt for me.  There was just no way that I could fit this humongous quilt on Mr Toyota (my ancient sewing machine).  This is my first and only quilt quilted by someone else so I asked for a simple square grid design, on point.  I figured the wonky log cabins would still be the focus of the quilt.  The grid is about 3".

You can really see the grid on the back - before washing!

Here is an indoor picture showing a little more realistic purple colour!

Gee Amy! You cannot tell the size of your quilt, till the last photo of you lifting the corner, next to the bed! That is Humongous! No wonder you sent it to away!!! Great colours!

Beautiful! This may sound weird but it reminds me of that gorgeous soft-leaf lettuce with the purple ends... Great fabric choices - it feels very fresh but still warm!

This looks even better in the outdoor photos! Hope you're enjoying snuggling under it!

The colours in this quilt are so lovely. I am not a purple person and it makes me want a purple quilt. I love it.

What a fun wonky log cabin quilt ... the diagonal grid quilting keeps it modern and fresh.
