2011 Spring Bloggers Quilt Festival

It has been a busy year for me here at I Quilt Scarlet and Gray.  I started blogging last year and also started pattern testing for some great quilt designers.  I have tested 23 patterns for 16 different designers.  In addition I have been participating in a Marti and Me Club at Cottonpicker’s Quilt Shop, created by Marti Michell, so each month this winter I have been working on a different project.  So it was a little difficult to pick out just one quilt to enter in the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival.
I have decided to share my Bali Breeze quilt which is the first project we did for the Marti and Me Club.  I made the quilt using Batiks from my stash.  The pattern gave us options for a tablerunner or quilts.  I actually made three table runners into a quilt.

What I haven't decided is that if I choose to hang the quilt what direction I should use.  Any suggestions?

Thanks to Amy's video I took some pictures of the quilt outside after I got it back from my wonderful quilter Jennifer McCann.

I really like the backing I use for this quilt.

Can you see the bubbles that Jennifer quilted?

Bali Breezes blowing in the wind!!

Thanks Amy for giving us the opportunity to share our love of quilting with the world!!
