Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Fall 2013 – Baby Quilt – Rainbow Herringbone

Amy’s Creative Side is once again hosting one of the biggest online quilt shows on Earth! Everyone gets two entries, so I thought I’d go back to my broken herringbone roots and once again show off the quilt that started it all. I’m entering this into the Baby Quilt category, as it has already made a work colleague of mine very happy, and her little bub is already enjoying colourful tummy time!
This was made by contributions from the Aussie Rainbow Bee, and it had me crushing hard on this block designed by Anne at Play-Crafts. So much so, that I took it a step further and hosted the #MSBHQAL (Molli Sparkles Broken Herringbone Quilt Along). The #MSBHQAL is finishing up this week, so it’s fitting to revisit this quilt one last time now.
Some quick quilt facts:
Size: 44″ square
Blocks: eight by bee mates, the ice blue one by Molli Sparkles
Sashing size: 2.25″ finished
Quilting: outline quilting with Aurifil
Binding: machine/hand stitched
Backing: green Denyse Schmidt to protect against grass stains
Label: portion of a herringbone block on back
Favourite Part: the two white notches in the binding

    Lovely lovely lovely. And I'm not sure I would have noticed the notches but now that you point them out, yep, totally my favourite part, too.

    The last BQF is how I found your blog and instantly fell in love with your fabulousness!
