Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013 - Constellations Quilt

AmysCreativeSide
Welcome!  Isn't the Blogger's Quilt Festival just one of the best things?  I have discovered so many wonderful blogs and beautiful quilts through the festival and I am looking forward to checking out all of yours.

Today I have decided to share my Constellations quilt with you.  One day I was perusing some fabric online and my husband noticed Lizzy House's Constellations line and asked if I could make a quilt for him.  Luckily I was able to track down a bundle (this line disappeared so fast!).

My husband supports me as a quilter, but it was exciting to see him take an active interest in my hobby.  I wanted to make something special for him and this is what I came up with.

I wanted to make the quilt pretty big (it's 80" square) and I wanted to make it unique so I decided to make my own design.  This quilt makes me wish I had an entire bolt of each of these prints, they are so great.

Because of the size of the quilt we had a hard time getting a good photo. I talked my husband into helping me take photos in front of his office, which is particularly special to me now since he had switched jobs and we relocated from Los Angeles to San Diego.  This quilt will always hold a special place in my heart :)

Finished size: 80x80"

  2. I have been wanting to make an 'astronomy like' quilt for about a year but have waffled back and forth the entire time trying to decide what to do. When I first saw the Lizzy House line introduced, I purchased a fat eighth bundle thinking I could do "something". Seeing your quilt is like getting one of those V-8 smacks in the head!! You just outdid yourself. This is beautiful and inspired. Well done!!!

  14. This is a really cool quilt, from the fabrics to the splash of stars down its diagonal! Love the on-site photo, too. (Cute kids!) I always start out feeling awkward going on location with a quilt for photo ops, but it never fails - folks always love seeing it being done. Great shot to have there!
