Fall 2013 Blogger’s Quilt Festival-Part II

Welcome intrepid travelers from Amy’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival and regular visitor’s to Queenie’s wee blog.
Amy graciously allows each person to enter 2 quilts per show and this is my second, a quilted pillow top called “Wonky Dice” which I’m entering in the Doll/Mini Quilt category.  Please click on any and all photos for an up-close view.
Oh, about a month or so ago I took a workshop from the extremely talented Sharon Schamber and learned her amazing Piec-lique technique which makes complex and curved piecing very approachable.  The next day I adventured (as Queenie has been known to do) with this newly learned technique and created this fun little wonky dice block.
I then snuggled it next to another project on Sir Owen the Innova for some quick quilting of bubbly pebbles.
I added extra batting/trapunto to the round pieced shapes creating a  petite pillow for each.
I finished Wonky Dice with a flanged binding and a lapped back for easy insertion of a pillow form.
Quilt Stats:
Size: 18” x 18”
Fabric: Various and assorted from the vast Queenie stash
Quilting: Hand guided custom quilting, 40 weight polly thread
Batting: 80/20

A hardy round of applause, standing ovation and many thanks to Amy for another outstanding Blogger’s Quilt Festival.  Please click here to see other beautiful quilts… and… pssst* vote for me starting November 1 ;o)

Until next time,
Have a great day!
