Dahlia Quilt: my ROYGBIV quilt

Dahlia-13

My good friend (and fellow Moda designer) Amy does a fabulous online quilt festival called “Bloggers Quilt Festival.”

Dahlia-4

So much fun! Here’s my entry into her ROYGBIV category.

Dahlia-7

This is my quilt called Dahlia.

Dahlia-6

This quilt was inspired by a panel quilt that my mother in law hand quilted for me and my husband when we got married back in the day.

I remember looking that the Dahlia design on the panel and trying to figure out how to recreate the design through piecing–without Y seams.

Dahlia-9

Finally, this year, I had a chance! It has been a quilt design I’ve wanted to make for a very long time.

I figured, the perfect opportunity to make my Dahlia quilt was with my very first fabric line! So, when I got my sample yardage of Best. Day. EVER!, I was SO excited to make this quilt. (By the way, Best. Day. Ever! is in shops now!)

Sadly, I was also in the middle of a book deadline, and I wasn’t able to do much of the piecing.

Dahlia-5

Amanda of Westwood Acres bailed me out big time and pieced the blooms for me, and I did the appliqué work and the quilting and finish work.

This quilt pattern is also in my shop, along with templates, if you’d like to make your own.

I adore this quilt, and I hope you do too. Thanks for stopping by!
