Sofiya’s Dresden: Blogger’s Quilt Festival Fall 2012

I was all worried that I didn’t have a quilt to share for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival this time around.  I know it doesn’t have to be a new quilt, but I always worry that I’m being boring showing the same quilt more than once.  But, somewhere in the back of my head, I managed to remember that I had held off posting about Sofiya’s Dresden Plate Quilt when I finished it in January.  It was being presented at our church and I wanted to keep it a bit of surprise, but then I just forgot after it was presented, so there we go, a new quilt, rediscovered, just in time for the BQF.

Sofiya’s Dredsen was made for the latest baby born at my North Carolina Church.  For a little of around 50, they kept me busy with six baby quilts last year.  I’ve had a little break now, but we’ve got three more coming up now.  My North Carolina Church has been so supportive of me as a quilter and as a person, even though I’m now back in Pennsylvania, so making each of their quilts is really special to me.

The back

And the quilting

Amy, who so graciously hosts this fun for all of us twice a year, has suggested that we include the following info to help people in voting for their favorite quilts.

  • Quilt Measurements: Roughly 40×50, I never really bother to measure my quilts, and it’s now happy in it’s new home, so I’m not going to swear to exact size.  It’s a healthy sized baby quilt.
  • Special Techniques Used: Hand Appliqued, Hand Quilted
  • Quilted by: Me
  • Best category: Baby Quilt or Hand Quilted

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hopefully I’ll be by your blog soon, I always find new and inspiring people during this festival, I really look forward to seeing everyone’s work.
