Blogger's Quilt Festival

Here is my Skipping School Fish Quilt. I am entering it in the baby quilt category of the Blogger's Online Quilting Festival. This is my first time enter a quilt in an festival or show. I am very excited to show you all my quilt because it is only the fourth quilt that I have ever made!

The pattern is from Tulip Patch. I did not know how hard curved seams are when I started the quilt. Boy was I in for a surprise! Some how I managed to get her done! I wasn't planning on entering my quilt so I do not have tons of photos.

The fabrics are a mix of cottons from Joann's and some quilt stores around Phoenix. The background is a Moda marble. The sky is a white with olive polka dots. I wish I had a nice artsy photo of the backing. It is such a nice pretty blue. Here is my hand embroiderd label!

I quilted in the ditch on the front which made a nice cross-hatch on the back. For the front I used an invisible thread and the back a matching light blue. It was my first time using an invisible thread. As alwasy I hand stitched the binding on the back.

Thanks everyone for taking a peak at my quilt entry! I hope you all have fun looking at the rest!

  1. That is really cute! Reminds me of Ernie saying "heeeeeere fishie fishie fishie".

  2. Love the fish especially in the blue, I haven't tackled any curves yet myself.

  3. I love these fish - what a wonderful quilt!

  4. Ya- curves can be interesting to sew to say the least. It turned out really cute though.

  5. This is a cute design, Maggie, and you did a great job! Good luck!
