Columbus Skyline: A Blogger’s Quilt Festival Entry

September 26, 2016

Every year The Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side brings tremendous inspiration to us all- I love seeing so much lovely work collected in one place!  I am thrilled to submit “Columbus Skyline” as an entry into the appliqué category of the festival.

Quilted Columbus Skyline Row Mini

This project began when I was asked to create a “Row by Row” pattern for a local quilt shop.  The theme for the year was “Home Sweet Home” so we embraced the unique skyline of Columbus, Ohio to develop a design specific to our area.  (For more information on the design process, I hope you will take a look at the original Columbus Skyline post.)

Hand stitched needle turn appliqué is used to create the city skyline.  I selected bright colors to reflect the vibrant community within the city.  This small quilt is finished with borders that provided a space to quilt in both the shop and city names.   The quilting is done in thread to match each building so the design is reflected on the back of the quilt.

    Your LQS was smart to ask you to design their pattern. It’s one of my favorite designs. The quilting is perfectly suited. Great job!
