Bloggers' Quilt Festival Spring 2012

If you have arrived here from the Bloggers' Quilt Festival, hello and welcome, I am glad to see you here.

bunting quilt

There is quite a long convaluting story to how this quilt came to be. I am primarily an art quilter and this type of quilt  with all it's straight lines and matching points is not my ususal style.

 However, somewhere along my creative travels I felt that had to be a way of doing a pieced Bunting block, that had movement to it.

That is the short version but I really hope you take a look this post "It started with this" to see the long version.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Amy.
Hope you visit again soon.
