When I started my blog I was super excited to share my very first quilt during this festival.  I was so proud. 
This is my first time to participate since 2010.

I've been lacking in my finishes.

To remedy this Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I have been running a monthly goal {with sponsors} called 'A Lovely Year of Finishes'  we would love to have your join us.  It's been fantastic to see finishes - even some of my own.

Please go check out the other amazing quilts with this springs Bloggers Quilt Festival.

Thanks for visiting


  1. It's beautiful!! I love triangles and Cameo is such a stunning line!! I have entered a triangles quilt with a voile backing - makes it so luxurious doesn't it?

  2. It looks great! And triangles can be tricky, unforgiving little things... Beautiful job!

  3. Yay, glad you got your entry in this time, it looks great!

  4. I love triangle quilts and your colors for this one are just gorgeous.

  5. It's lovely. Triangle are on my list of things I need to tackle.

  6. Really great quilt! I need to do a triangle quilt soon! I have never done a completly triangle one! :) And- I see a trend here with the voile backs! I have made a voile quilt but backed it mostly with regular cotton - would have been much more cuddly with the voile backing! :)

  7. It's a beautiful quilt. I still need to tackle triangles in all their angles and awkwardness. You really showed them who's boss in this quilt, would love to feel the voile backing!

  8. I love this quilt! I bet the voile backing is so super soft and cuddly!

  9. I am falling in love with triangles, thanks for sharing!
