Week 4: IGQuiltFest
NATIONAL QUILTING MONTH PHOTO CHALLENGE / #IGQuiltFest:
What are you doing for National Quilt Month? Are you following the photo challenge, hosted by Amy Ellis (AmysCreativeSide.com), posted to #IGQuiltFest. I don't have an Instagram account but will participate by posting weekly photos (with captions) in this space.
DAY 18 - MINI QUILT
Temecula Quilt Company blogs the cutest mini quilts. From their book: "Try wonky layouts, unexpected block pairings, and blends of color where anything goes."
DAY 19 - THREAD
My old wooden spools of thread are displayed in a sixteen-inch tall vase.
DAY 20 - QUILTS IN THE WILD
The North Carolina Arboretum Quilt Garden (from their website) incorporates the unique interpretation of traditional quilt block patterns with plants, representing the close ties between heritage crafts and gardening and the contemporary art and craft of quilting in the Southern Appalachian region. Designs change every two years and plants are changed out quarterly with the seasons.
DAY 21 - QUILTING DETAILS
I wanted the quilting to mimic the green swirls.
DAY 22 - SPECIAL FINISH
Teaching a friend to sew binding (with mitered corners) on one of her first quilts.
DAY 23 - STASH
I couldn't resist using this photo and quote from the internet.
DAY 24 - QUILT LABELS
7 ideas from popular authors - link to the article by clicking on STITCHthis! above.
In researching, I even found options for Quick Response Bar Codes and inserting a MicroChip.
From Amy's March 1st blog post:
IGQuiltFest celebrates the many different aspects of quilting, and is a great way to get to know other quilters online. There's no pressure to post EVERYDAY but it's definitely fun to post when you have the time.
Enjoy the inspirations on her website. To participate: Add a photo to your Instagram profile based on the daily prompt. Use #IGQuiltFest in the caption of your posts and have a public profile to show up in the hashtag feed.
