Blogger’s Quilt Festival: Walking On Sunshine
I’ve completely held out on joining the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, because as I’m only four quilts in, I still feel a bit inexperienced. That all too common I’m not worthy feeling crept in, and so I hesitated. But, and if you’re a regular visitor, you know there’s always a but (I like big butts, and I can not lie…) after speaking to my quiltspiration, Grandma Sparkles, today in Oklahoma, my feelings changed. If she can dodge some fierce tornadoes, I can dodge some insecurities!
My first quilt, Walking On Sunshine, was the first quilt I created. I made this with Grandma Sparkles in mind, because since her and Papa Sparkles raised me, it was always like, get this, walking on sunshine. Brilliant! As I am entering this into the scrap quilt category I can already see you wondering, with arched eyebrow, if you’d never made a quilt, how did you have scraps? Well, I just started collecting yellow fabrics from everywhere I could because I knew I wanted this scrappy postage stamp quilt look. So I had to create my scraps from scratch! That’s sort of backwards, but I’ve always done things a bit differently.
If you want to see more photos, the original post is here, along with my full Grandma Sparkles dedication post. If you’ve been following along with the saga of the Magic Suitcase (a nine part series, eek!) you understand the type of woman I’m dealing with. So anyway, I hope you like it!
