Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013

Welcome to my submission to this year's Bloggers Quilt Festival   I haven't participated in quite some time, so I'm jumping in this year.  My current project isn't quite finished as I ran into some snags with my machine, so I'm sharing with you today my Marmalade Grey Quilt in a panicked attempt to share something with you...and possibly win some of the great prizes!

                               
This was a fairly simple quilt I designed in a vertical brick style with narrow pale yellow sashing.



I quilted it with my longarm quilting machine.  I really wanted to practice some of my modern stitching designs to showcase on a sample quilt.    Voila, Marmalade Grey came alive with texture.

 The more I learn to quilt on my longarm quilting machine, the more addicted to dense quilting texture I become.
