Bits & Pieces--Blogger's Quilt Festival

Good Morning, everyone.  I was surfing the net last night and came upon the Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2013.  The festival looked like fun---great entries, prizes and a great way to visit blogs of other quilters.  So I decided to enter a little quilt I made about a year ago.  I call this little mini Bits & Pieces.
I made this little quilt to fill a space on a wall of quilts I have in our foyer.  It was a fun little quilt to put together.  The background is upholstery fabric.
 The liberated pieced block was appliqued on the background with a primitive cross stitch.
 Beads were added for fun and I hand quilted with black thread, following the design of the upholstery fabric.
The quilt measures 5" wide and has an edge 8 1/2" long and 8" on the opposite side. Pop over to the Festival and check out all the quilts---you'll find Bits & Pieces under the Art Quilt Category.


  1. Fabulous mini - I love improv and free-piecing...

  2. What a fun mini quilt! You did a super job. Love all your hand stitching and the different elements you added to this.
