Bloggers Quilt Festival 2018

Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,


This is the second year that I’m participating in the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy Ellis at Amy’s Creative Side.  There are many generous sponsors giving away wonderful prizes.  Please click on her site and visit them.  I’m sure they have something you just got  to have.

This year for me seems to be the year of piecing.  I’ve only completed a couple quilts so far, but I’ve been piecing up a storm.  I’ve convinced myself not to start another project until I can finish some of them.  That commitment may or may not last.  It’s always exciting to start a new quilt, but then again, I must remember how good I feel when I complete one.

I must confess that I’ve been wanting to do a jelly roll rug for my bathroom.  A lady from my quilt club brought one for show and tell and I am just in love with it.  I’ve purchased the supplies, but my good machine has been in the shop for two weeks now.  I need to wait until it comes home as I doubt machine number two is strong enough to sew through all those layers in a good way.   Maybe this new project won’t count since I understand it can be completed in a couple of days.

Alright, to the matter at hand.  Earlier this year I made a Grandma Window’s quilt.  I called it a Stained Glass quilt.  I had a good time with it.  The ombre fabric was fantastic.  My son grabbed it up as soon as it was done.  I did some custom walking foot quilting on each block and I used up the leftover fabric on the back.  I was very happy with the finish. I hope you enjoy it as well.

  1. Hello Cherie, I understand why your son grabbed onto the brilliant quilt you finished. It is fabulous and with the superb quilting it is that much more a wonderful quilt. I have been cleaning and sorting my fabric storage room and wow, I never realized how many unfinished projects I have accumulated. I made a promise to finish every one of these and only a new one occasionally. Have fun with all of your quilting projects and thank you so much for sharing! Have a fantastic day!


    1. Hi Brenda, With right hand raised:  “I vow not to start another quilt until I finish some of my UFO’s”.  I know I can’t promise to finish them all.  I read blogs and just want to start one just like that.  LOL.  Thanks for visiting.

    1. Hi Denise, I guess this one just caught my eye.  When he comes visit he graces me with his attention on my project, but I can tell he’s not really into it.   Best Regards,Cherie BurtonCherie’s Quilting Journey


  2. The intense colors are so eye-catching! The rectangles are a great way to show off your wonderful straight-line quilting. And I like the leftovers used on the back.


    1. Hi Gwynette, I was wondering when I wrote that post if I would hear an update from you.  I can’t wait to see it.  Please email me a photo when you’re done. I have not had the pleasure many times inspiring anyone.  It is certainly an honor.   Best Regards,Cherie BurtonCherie’s Quilting Journey


  3. What a beautiful quilt!!! I’m an ombre fabric lover (the quilt I posted for the festival uses ombres, too) and I’ve been tossing around the idea of doing a stained glass quilt next. How fun to click on the thumbnail from the main page and discover that you’d used ombres 🙂 I’m curious: did you put the rows together quilt-as-you-go? It seems that this pattern would lend itself well to that.


    1. Hi Allison, I jumped over to your blog and took a look at your quilt.  It’s amazing.  My quilt was put together in blocks.  I quilted it at the end.  I first defined the block with stitch in the ditch and them came back and marked the designs in each block.  I haven’t tried quilt as you go yet. Best Regards,Cherie BurtonCherie’s Quilting Journey
