Blue and White Quilt

I was not blogging when the Blogger's Quilt Festival was last spring so I'm entering one of my quilts for the first time in the Blogger Quilt Festival Fall 2011. This is exciting to enter a quilt and not have to take or ship it and have to put a label and sleeve on either. This could be habit forming.
Since I was not on top of things, I do not have pictures of this quilt being made.
The pattern is a Winding Way, which intrigued me. All those curves was a learning experience.
I love two color quilts and especially blue and white. I'm a quilt maker more than I am a collector but I do have a few antique blue and whites and I'm always looking for more. But I do love making my own.

My good friend Pam and shop owner of Sager Creek quilted it for me and did what I love, just a traditional pattern. I love the look, perfect.

















I hope you like my quilt enough that maybe you'll try making one of your own. The curves were not that bad and especially when the pieces were cut on  an accurate cutter (?) It goes together so much easier.

  1. Winding ways is one of my all time favourite patterns to look at with longing. I'm just too chicken to take on the curves. Yours is one of the most lovely I've ever seen. Well done!

  8. Really impressive quilt. I don't really do curved piecing, but I probably should, it's so worth it for a quilt like this!

  19. So pretty! I love that pattern and it's beautiful in blue and white. It's one that's on my list to make eventually, but those curves have me a little scared. I think it might have just moved up the list a bit...thanks for the inspiration!

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
