Blogger's Quilt Festival - October 2014

Thanks to Amy and all her helpers and sponsors for the chance to participate in the Blogger's Quilt Festival!  It already looks like an interesting group of quilts and sites to visit!

This is my entry for the Modern Quilts category.   I call it "Chutes and Ladders" (the chutes are in the quilting)  It is an original design but I thought it fit best in the "Modern" category. 87" x 87"
You can read about how I constructed and quilted this quilt here .

For my second entry I chose this Art Quilt.  Altho' I named this quilt "Modern Scraps #1  I meant it to be a wall hanging and since it is not a traditional design but one of my own invention I think fits in better with the Art Quilts.
 40" x 45"   
          You can read about how I constructed this quilt and all it's particulars  here and here.

I've already visited a bunch of sites and seen some great quilts!  Have a great time Site Seeing!!
                                                             Cheers, Claire W.
