Blogger's Quilt Festival - Throw Quilt - Over The Horizon

I'm an Aussie Expat and dedicated sewer!
We moved a family of 4 to USA in 7 bags.
How does one condense lives into 7 bags let alone an extensive fabric stash? Vacuum Packs!
The fabric in this quilt is from the "Suzani" range by Michelle Marvvig for Charles Parsons. It is the stash I snuck into our luggage! The reason - I vowed to learn to quilt while living in Utah.
I have used the EZ Dresden Ruler by Darlene Zimmerman, that I won (thank you to Angela Flicker) and I challenged myself to see what was "Over The Horizon".
Good things - I think!
Quilt measures 53 inches x 63 inches

  1. I can see why you'd want these fabrics to make it into your suitcases! They fit together beautifully in this quilt. I really like the fresh modern design of it as well.

  2. This is still one of my favorites, your design is fantastic. I'm amazed that you are such a new quilter, I keep forgetting that! Your work is beautiful.

  3. This is really beautiful! I thought it really stood out from the crowd.

  4. I love everything about your quilt ... the colors, the fabrics, the pattern, the backing, the quilting. Thanks for sharing ... :) Pat
