Snack Time Finish - Bloggers Quilt Festival

This is my quilt for the Bloggers Quilt Festival  Spring 2014! If you've never been, back up and follow that link, it's an internet quilt show and is always so inspiring! And if you are new to my blog and want to see more of my work, I keep a link to all my finished projects at the top - so easy to see everything!




I am entering my Nautical Snack Time quilt. I did the Baby size which measures out a 37" by 48" which puts me in the Small Category in the festival.
 

Those of you who follow my blog got a peek at this quilt already because I wrote a pattern review for it. That review is at Sew Sweetness' blog. Spoiler Alert - I love the pattern. I love all of Julie's patterns. She makes everything so clear and easy to follow. And my favorite part is she does all the math for you if you want to make a different size (which I usually do)!


My cousin had requested a baby quilt for her little boy in green and blue. She said she used whales in his room so when I found Michael Miller's The Littles line. I knew it would be perfect for her. I didn't know it would be perfect for this quilt at first. Here was my first block where I realized what is so important to this pattern:

Do you see it? It's a great block, beautiful fabrics, but there is no contrast and you lose that winding effect the other blocks had. And THAT is when I realized I had my quilt for my cousin.


I did simple straight line quilting on it so it would remain snuggly for the little one.


And a chevron border fabric for some fun.


The back was a nice stash buster of some fabric that I love, but the patterns are too large to cut small!

What a very cool quilt - I particularly like your black and white binding. :) This reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream!

Really cute quilt, cute fabrics for a boy and an intriguing block. I have to keep the pattern in mind.
