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.
