Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring Fling Mini

I am entering my Spring Fling Mini Quilt into the Blogger's Quilt Festival Mini Quilt Category. I know many of you may have just seen this quilt recently as the Spring Fling Mini Swap just happened last month but I hope you won't mind seeing it here again. I loved making this quilt for my swap partner.

Spring Fling Mini Quilt. Designed, pieced and quilted by Anita LaHay of Daydreams of Quilts.
I collected all my low volume polka dotted fabrics from the scraps in my stash to piece the background. I cut the flower stems and blooms from bright fabrics in my stash and fused them onto the backing. I then quilted everything using mono filament thread.

I used IKEA fabric for the backing. It was too perfect for a Spring themed quilt!

Here was the project in progress after fusing the flowers down but before quilting.
This was such a happy fun project to make. I hope you enjoyed seeing it. My partner was very happy to receive it. Head over to the Blogger's Quilt Festival to enjoy all the quilts entered there.

  5. I like the playful nature of this quilt. So many polkadots but they don't overwhelm the quilt. Good luck.
