Bloggers Quilt Festival–Large Quilt Category

Welcome to those visiting from the Bloggers Quilt Festival, my name is Kathy and I am a longarm quilter living in Northern Manitoba, Canada.  It is always hard to pick only two quilts to enter into the festival because I’m a Quiltaholic, the proof is here, because I love making quilts.  No UFO’s for this quilter, I enjoy the whole process from picking the fabric to putting the last stitches in the binding and have to finish a quilt before starting another.  It’s good motivation to be able to start a new project!   I also love photography and this goes well with having a blog but I don’t just share pictures of quilts but of the beauty that is Canada’s north from the wildlife to the Aurora Borealis. I’m pretty obsessed with taking pictures of the Northern Lights and feel so fortunate to live where they are so active.   Anyway I digress…you’re here for the quilts!
I am sharing my City Slicker quilt in the Large Quilt category for the Bloggers Festival.   The pattern is one my friend Lori and I designed for our pattern company Highway 10 Designs, you can see all our patterns at our Etsy shop here.

I used a Cantik Batiks Gemstone called Cassiopeia and a light batik for the background.  I custom quilted a leafy feather in the background and used a diamond pattern in the colourful batiks fabrics.

I used white So Fine 50wt thread on the whole quilt and Quilters Dream Blend batting.
