blogger's quilt festival

Here is my entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by amyscreativeside.com :

I have collected many blue and white fabrics and after I cut them into charm squares I used my "go to" technique that I have shown here.  I learned this technique, how to turn charm squares on point, about 9 years ago from my local quilt shop.  Whenever I want to make something quick and easy, no matter what size quilt I need, this is my favorite easy quilt method.   I try to cut some squares out of all of my fabric, because the idea of a charm quilt is to have no two squares alike.  This is a great way to use your stash!  This technique works for any size charm square, so I usually cut 4, 5 and 6 inch squares to have on hand : )





I hope you are enjoying the Blogger's Quilt Festival!

This is a wonderful technique, can't wait to try it. Using your example, how large is the quilt? BettyLou

This is a lovely quilt. I have noticed a lot of people are sharing quilts in the BQF from fabric that the collected -- similar to you collecting your blue and whites. Great job!
