Blogger's Quilt Festival

Amy's Creative Side

Hi everyone! Welcome to Sew Inspired. If you haven't visited before I hope you take a minute to look around, or come back later on to check out my tutorials and recent projects if you're busy looking at quilts right now.

For Blogger's Quilt Festival I decided to share my supernova quilt again. I made this quilt for my parents' 40th wedding anniversary which was this past May.

finished supernova quilt
It is one of my favorite quilts I've ever made. I love how the colors turned out, and the quilting, and the back.

(That's my dad's and mom's names.) One day I want to make another one to keep.


The quilt was made using the quiltalong information at Freshly Pieced, and my colors were originally based on her color scheme but they ended up a bit different.


If you're interested (and want to see a close-up of the quilting), you can read previous blog posts about this quilt here and here.

Quilt Stats for Blogger's Quilt Festival:
Finished quilt measures about 60" x 60" (I think! I don't have the quilt anymore.)

Best category: home machine quilting, throw quilt


Thanks again for stopping by, and thanks so much to Amy for hosting the quilt festival!
