Blogger's Quilt Festival Quilt #532

I have been trying to decide which quilt to enter into the Blogger's Quilt Festival and 
finally settled on Charmalade.   
Many of you have seen this quilt over at the Moda Bake Shop
where I did a tutorial on how to make it.

Funny story, I took this quilt with me on vacation to Petosky, MI and had to apply the binding.  
I got the binding all done and thought it would be fun to photograph it 
in a beautiful setting near Lake Michigan. 
 It rained almost the entire time we were there and was incredibly windy.  
For the above photo I hopped out of the car, flung the quilt over the fence, quickly snapped 2 pictures and wadded the quilt back up and threw it in the trunk. 
 I was frantically hoping one of the 2 pictures would be "the one".  
This is the one I used and I love how it came out.

 I quilted feathers in the snow portion.  
I'm not sure you can tell but I used light aqua thread.

 I quilted straight lines down the colored lines and out into the border.  
My LAQ, Liz did the circles in the colored border.

If you know me you know that I have 5 cats, so everything has to be "cat approved".
 I think if Jack felt he could nap on it it must be good enough to stay!

 I love this photo as it looks like he is claiming it all for himself!

So this is Charmalade
A charm pack friendly quilt made using Marmalade.
If you want to make one too, please check out my post on the Moda Bake Shop.
If you stop over to the MBS, leave me a comment over there and let me know!
