These colors really feel like summer! I love that royal blue with the zingy lemon yellow beside the dark black value Shelburne Falls. And red! That Alchemy butterfly print by Amy Butler is something I picked up at QuiltCon just randomly. Fits so perfectly in the spirit of this quilt!
To make this quilt back, I pulled large scraps and yardage in my quilt front colors (black, gray, royal blue, pink, red and yellow). The patchwork is built in a log cabin style, starting with the black birdie Alexander Henry print as center, and spiraling round. I love to piece quilt backs because it's a great way to utilize slow-moving fabrics from my stash. Also good for those prints that just don't want to be cut to pieces!
So we're basted (I love you, 505 spray!) and ready to quilt. Looking forward to diving into the quilting in a few minutes!

Today, I have more prizes to announce! Yesiree, More Prizes!
From Whipstitch, one winner located anywhere in the world, will gain free access to Deborah's Essential Quilting eCourse, a $99 value. This is a great course for anyone getting started with quilting, as it covers all the basics, from choosing fabric all the way through finishing a quilt. It also has lessons on intermediate techniques, for those of you who have been quilting for awhile and are ready to challenge yourself.
And remember, anyone can win! Thanks, Whipstitch!
Next, Mad About Patchwork is donating a pretty bundle of fabric by Liberty of London! This prize is an eight-piece fat quarter set of Stile in the blue colorway. And these Liberty Lifestyle fabrics are quilting cottons... yay!
Happily, this bundle of fabric ships anywhere in the world. Very much appreciated!
Ok, so add these two door prizes to the fabric, thread, Field Study linens and batting already announced earlier this month. Wow, thanks to each participating sponsor for making our festival extra fun!!!
Again, the festival will begin on Tuesday, May 28th and will be open for entries through Thursday the 30th. On Friday I'll announce the random door prize winners and open voting for our grand prize winner... who wins a gigantic roll of batting!
Hope to see you there!
