“A Fine Day” : Entry to Bloggers Quilt Festival

The talented Amy @ Amy’s Creative Side,  always puts a well-organized online quilt festival this time of year. I am entering a couple of quilts!!

The first one is my MQG Riley Blake Challenge quilt “A Fine Day”. It is an original design that was inspired by the color of the prints that were provided in the challenge. It reminded me of the colors of the sun throughout a fine day.

Sunrise (bottom left), Midday (top left), Sunset (top right) and Dusk (bottom right).

For the quilting, I used invisible thread on top, since the colors varied so much. I tried my hand at circular quilting for the first time, trying to keep the sun theme in the quilting.  I loved the circular quilting.
