Fall is here and its time to take a wonderful blog tour and see the many quilts of Blogger's Quilt Festival. Thanks to Amy of Amy's Creative Side, twice a year we are able to be inspired by great photos and stories of a wide array of quilterly goodness. This festival is one of my favorite blogging activities each time it comes around. I usually spend those weekends tied to the computer, with a mug of coffee or tea in my hand as I jump to so many quilter's blogs.
This fall, I am sharing my Village Green Quilt. It was designed by Thimbleberries and I love the combination of warm fabrics in the kit.

This was a block of the month club for 2010. I was pretty happy with my progress each of the months. By December, I was even sewing the sawtooth border. So this quilt went together faster than last year's Three's Company quilt. I had it quilted by my neighbor on a long arm and I got the binding stitched down very recently.
The quilt that I chose to make was described as a "generous queen sized throw". It works perfectly on a double bed as a coverlet and hangs down the side by a few inches. I love it on the living room sofa as it's quite a lot bigger than the quilt I usually curl up with for TV. I love how the colors coordinate with other quilts I already made and use in our home.
Thimbleberries quilts often have multiple borders and this is no acception. Some are a bit too much framing, but with the cute sawtooth border on this one, I think it's the perfect finish for the edge! This has now won a special place in my heart as a favorite quilted finish.
