Blogger's Quilt Festival: Fall 2012

I've realized it's been since the last Blogger's Quilt Festival in May that I've blogged about anything!  I have been working all summer and fall on this new quilt top and I'm happy to unveil it for this Blogger's Quilt Festival. So here it is, my entry for the Fall 2012 Blogger's Quilt Festival -


Fabrics I picked out while I was on a trip to the Ozarks.  They reminded me of the pretty hazy colors of the sun peering out from the foggy skies. 

I decided to try my hand at paper piecing finally!  This is block from Carol Doak called Y2K. 

25 blocks later the center is finished.

I decided to add a few borders. 

Finished quilt 112x112.

The end cap pieces are a block from Forest Quilting called Circling Geese.

Can't wait to take it to my favorite long arm quilter to finish it!

So there you have it! My first attempt at paper piecing was a success and I can't wait to do more!!
Thanks again to Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side for hosting this great event!! Please leave me a comment and let me know that you were here! Thanks for looking!
