Bloggers Quilt Festival 2016

Thank you Amy  from for hosting again this year.

This year I am entering my Slice of Sunshine in the hand quilting category.  This quilt was inspired by an older lady whom I used to hand quilt for.  She was getting so she couldn't work at quilts much anymore, and called me one day to see if I would take some things she had. So, away I went to see what she was talking about...thinking 'someone can use it'.

She had some quilt magazines and lots of wonderful fabric!!! I noticed that she had the page turned down for this one and fabric to go with it.  So....what else could I do?  Here is my "Slice of Sunshine"....

This quilt is made with Kona black and Batiks...measure 801/2 inches square.
Close up of the hand quilting in gold thread.....doesn't look gold here, but I purposely used gold so it would stand out with that little isn't doing any good here.


  1. "Slice of Sunshine" is a great name for this quilt, love the hand quilting you have done.

  2. what a lovely design not come across this before and the hand quilting is beautiful

  3. I LOVE this one - the colors and design are so striking.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous, and beautifully quilted.

  5. Stunning! The hand quilting really makes it shine. It's hard to believe it's so big just from the photos. I'll bet it's even more spectacular in person! How nice of the lady to offer it.

  6. Stunning colors and beautiful quilting!

  7. One word about sums up this quilt...stunning!! Nice happy, bright fabric selections.
