Bloggers' Quilt Festival 2012

Amy's Creative Side

It's Quilt Festival time again.

I am so glad that Amy organises this wonderful festival because I love reading about the stories surrounding the different quilts.

This time, I am going to enter the mini quilt that I made for the Brit Quilt Swap Round 3.

It's recipient was the lovely Clare, who is a budding photographer.  Her Flikr feed is an absolute feast for the eyes.

This was her inspiration mosaic...

Brit Quilt Swap 3 - inspiration mosaic

and I also found this photo amongst her favourites


and also a picture a bit like the one below, which I can find now.

Those images coupled with the Polaroid and the Bubble quilts from the inspiration mosaic helped me to daydream up this mini quilt/wall hanging...
