Overexcited Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry #1

Oops! I got so excited about submitting some quilts for the online Blogger's Quilt Festival that I submitted them without reading the directions! My apologies to the organizers. Hopefully you're feeling generous enough to give me a chance to redeem myself. ;)

My first entry is my Black and Gray X-Plus Quilt. I made this quilt for my youngest sister after she asked for a white, gray, and black quilt. I had to put a call out to my Instagram quilting friends to get all of the scraps I needed, but in the end, I love how this turned out. I feel like it has an iridescent, three-dimensional quality to it. Usually with scrappy quilts, you think of lots of different confetti-like colors, but I think this quilt uniquely fits into the Scrappy category because of its muted palette.

  2. What a great understated version for a scrappy. Love the subtle variety and of course the xPlus pattern is one of my all time favorites. Sisters are the best - and IG quilty sisters are too.
