Blogger's Quilt Festival: Cosmos

The past couple weeks I have been exhausted with unpacking and getting our new place habitable, and I have been super sad that I have been neglecting blogland. so I figured, what better way to get back into the swing of things than with an entry into this spring's Blogger's Quilt Festival.

For my entry in the large quilts category, I have chosen my darling Cosmos Marcelle Medallion. I absolutely adore this quilt, but I think William might use it more than I do. (he's cute so he can get away with it)

 It's his go to nap time quilt :)

These windblown pictures are great because you can really see the detail of the spiral quilting. I quilted it on my own little machine, and I am so glad I did. The spiral was just what this quilt needed.

The bulk of this quilt was made with Lizzy House Constellations fabric line + some Tula Pink + a bunch of low volume from my stash. I love the monochromatic blues and grays because I feel like it lets the piecing shine through without getting jumbled in super scrappiness.
