Bloggers Quilt Festival

Hello and welcome to my entry to the Blogger's Quilt Festival!  I am entry #456.

 
I've spent several days contemplating which quilt to enter.  I was flummoxed because it was beginning to feel like work.  Then I remembered how much fun I had making this quilt and decided to share it here.  From start to finish, I loved making this quilt.



It started when my dear husband decided that we need to replace our shabby dishes with a new set and chose Fiesta Ware.   I swear they are the first dishes I have ever owned that make me happy even when they are sitting dirty in the dishwasher.  I love, love, love seeing all of the colors together.

 
Then I saw this quilt being used in an advertisement as a table cloth under Fiesta Ware and showed it to my beloved.
 

 
We could have purchased a kit to make it...complete with instructions....but my husband is an computer engineer and wanted to figure it out himself.  So he made the pattern and I made the quilt.

 
The circles are all hand appliqued and the nine patches are pieced.


 
It took me about a month of steady work to get it finished...but in the end it was worth it.


 It makes me smile just as much as the dirty dishes do!

I love hearing stories of how husbands get in on the quilting! (My husband likes to impress with his use of terms like "stitch in the ditch"!) Your quilt is gorgeous! Love the design!

What a happy quilt- like that it was a group effort. It does look like Fiesta ware and love the robbing peter block variation with the double nine patch -- so fun.
