Blogger's Quilt Festival

It is time once again for the Blogger's Quilt Festival.   If you are visiting from the festival link - welcome, and may I introduce you to my quilt "Alternate Routes", an entry in the "Two Color" quilt category.

You will notice a change of season in some of the photos.  I had originally taken pictures when I finished the quilt in the spring, and wanted some new fall shots for the festival, but the sun did not want to stay out and make that easy, so you get a bit of both!

I have decided to share this quilt because it will always hold a special place in my heart, as it was the first pattern published by Highway 10 Designs - the pattern company I share with my wonderful quilty friend Kathy. "Alternate Routes" is a little bit of a unique pattern as it includes 20 layouts in the pattern, but the possibilities seem endless as you will see on our Flickr Page. 

 If you love a two color quilt and want to make your own unique version of Alternate Routes, you can purchase the pattern in our Craftsy Store or our Etsy Store ;)!

A little more info about this quilt:

The quilt is 80" x 80".
The stunning grey fabric is an Art Gallery print and I just love it, I sort of wish I bought more to have some in my stash.
It is quilted with a pantograph called "Paisley" with a pink So Fine thread.
I almost like the back as much as the front because of the cute polka dot fabric!

Thanks for visiting! You should probably grab a comfy chair and some tea and then head off to see the rest of the quilty goodness that is part of the festival!  Just click the button below.
