Bloggers' Quilt Festival 2012

For the Bloggers' Quilt Festival, I decided I would share my most recent finish, my self-designed scrappy X's quilt.


This throw-sized quilt was made from the scraps left over from my first quilt because I was just a wee bit over-enthusiastic about using the rotary cutter. I started this quilt back in August and it was my first foray into designing my own blocks and quilt. (More posts about this one here, here, and here.) 



This quilt was a scrap buster project that I was actually very unsure of at several points, but am so happy with the results. This finished quilt is going to be a present to my grandmother, who saw it this past weekend and liked it immensely.


In addition to making this quilt almost entirely from scraps (other than the backing and the darker brown sashing) it was a fun experience to not work from a pattern and to let the creative juices flow.

To those of you visiting from the Bloggers' Quilt Festival, thanks for stopping by!
