Blogger's Quilt Festival

I almost didn't post a quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival since I haven't actually finished anything in a while, but then I decided to do something a bit different. I am posting about one I did for my hubby's cousin who lives in the Hague. This was one of two I actually did for his cousin's children. Instead of focusing on the front of the quilt, I actually wanted to post about the back since I love how it turned out.
 This was the back of the quilt with giant Granny Squares from charms.

The front was based on the Four Square Layer Cake Quilt. I did straight line quilting to echo the charms on the front.


Quilt size is approximately 64"x87 and fits a European twin
The design on the back was totally made up on the spur of the moment because Granny Squares were so big. I just thought it would be cool to make big ones because I had 5x5" squares.
Quilting: Straight line quilting echoing the squares on the front
Quilted by: me
Best Category: Bed quilt, ROYGBIV quilt, home machine quilted

I really loved how this one came together and how bright and colorful it is. Plus it's double sided! And it now it lives on a wee little twin bed in the Netherlands!

Great quilt! I love those multi-sided quilts, in case you need a change all you need to do is flip it and you don't have to redecorate your whole room!
