I have entered my Mom's Scary Kittens pillows at the Quilting Gallery themed quilt contest.

Please enjoy looking at the all the different Halloween quilts and Vote!!

2011 Bloggers Quilt Festival

This is the third time I have entered Amy's Creative Side Bloggers Quilt Festival.

I have decided to share with you one of my many Scarlet and Gray quilts.  I was recently honored to be asked to participate in a Scarlet and Gray Quilt Trunk Show.

Joyce Ely of JEllen's House of Fabric and an Ohio State alumni, asked me to share my quilts with her customers.

Of all the quilts displayed in the trunk show, my favorite quilt is Scarlet and Gray Allover.

Scarlet and Gray Allover 48" x 48" is a Marti Michell pattern I saw displayed in The Glass Thimble in Columbus.  It is made using Marti's Log Cabin Ruler and her Perfect Piecing acrylic templates.  I machine pieced it in 2009 and had it machine quilted by Jennifer McCann of Galena, Ohio in 2010.  I had the pleasure of meeting and taking a class from Marti at Lake Farm Parks the winter of 2010, it was awesome!! 

I learned alot about using Marti's rulers while making this quilt.  Since I have a large stash of Scarlet and Gray, I see myself making another one of these quilts now that I have even more experience using Marti's templates. 

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my quilt.  If you find my blog interesting, please let Amy know so that I can be a featured quilter!!
