It’s that time of year–International Quilt Market & Festival (the semi-annual quilting industry trade show and related festival). This also means that Amy Ellis from Amys Creative Side is hosting the semi-annual Bloggers Quilt Festival. Anyone can participate by posting a picture of a favorite quilt, writing a bit about it, and linking up to one of the many quilt categories.
I’ve posted about this quilt before–I named it Low Definition in a nod to all of the great low volume quilts that are out there right now. I used it to teach a small Introduction to Improv Piecing Class at Capital Quilts in April, and it was just plain fun to make! Sometimes, I think it is important to set aside deadlines, or quilts for other people, and just making something that reminds you how much you love to sew. I love the colors, the fabrics, the quilting, and the small size!

I’m celebrating Quilt Market from afar with lunch with two of my good quilting friends, Leigh and Laura! And I’m pretty sure I’m going to be stalking Lee’s IG feed all weekend (as well as many more blogging friends who are in Portland.) I’m equal parts relieved and jealous that I didn’t make the trip.)
