Blogger's Quilt Festival - Fall 2009

This is the second Blogger's Quilt Festival that Park City Girl has coordinated. The first one, last spring, was very successful. I didn't share a quilt in the first festival, but decided to participate this time around.

Here is my entry.


I made this quilt in 2004 and named it Pink Pickles. It hangs on my living room wall. The paper piecing pattern was from an issue of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. I used all hand dyed fabrics in this except for one commercial print on the front and the back is also a commercial print. This is just one of the many quilts I've made that I really like.

If you didn't come upon this blog post by way of Park City Girl's festival links, you'll see all of the other quilters who are participating here.

  50. Terri,
    Your pickle dish quilt is absolutely stunning- I do love the pattern and have fabrics collected and a couple of variations of pickle dish paper pieced patterns by Judy Niemeyer. I also have some of Valori Wells patterns that use the New York beauty block. They create such interesting intricate designs with this block. Perhaps one day I will get a quilt made using this block yet.
    Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing your gorgeous quilt.
    Enjoy the show.
    Regards,
    Anna

    ReplyDelete
  68. Wow. Yep, I think I'll say it again. WOW!

    I started on a Pickle Dish in a class in Houston way back in the 90s. I still have the first (and only) arc, because the colors were. . . well. . . not these yummy delicious colors that you show in your quilt. I love the radiating movement--my eye goes and goes and goes around the quilt--as well as the harmonies of color. Lovely.

  71. Lovely! It is sort of a double wedding ring with spikes. I love to dye fabric also, and I think that is what really makes this quilt.

    Beautiful!
