Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Spring 2014 – A Lot of Look
So I had a look back to see what I entered into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival last time around. I was shocked! While it was only late last year, I am amazed at the progress I have made since then. Who was that baby quilter? What a difference six months makes.
I’m only entering one quilt this season, as I feel like many of the others have had their time in the spotlight elsewhere. They’re ready to hang their bindings up and chillax. Mr. A Lot of Look though, well, he loves the spotlight, can’t get enough of it, in fact.
I even saw him practicing in the mirror, “Alright, Mr. Sparkles, I’m ready for my close-up.”
A Lot of Look was made in December 2013 for a very special long-distance friend, and her own new diva addition. I’m entering it in the Modern category because of it’s reliance on simple design, bold colour, and a strong use of shape. Wait, did I just describe myself?
