Maypole Quilt :: Blogger's Quilt Festival


This quilt is another submission into the Blogger's Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side.

From the first time I saw the Maypole quilt by Suzy Quilts, I knew that there was one in my future. I love the modern look of this quilt made in solids, but this one is for my new granddaughter and I wanted to add some fun prints. The Lil' Red line by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda is a favorite of mine. I used one print on the front and another for the backing.


This red plaid fabric that I used for the binding is by Lori Hold for Riley Blake. I've used this fabrics for several different bindings, and it never disappoints.


I'm happy for a quilt tester who is always willing to help me out in a pinch. Bruno's definitely my guy!
