Blogger's Quilt Festival: Austin House

Twice a year, Amy of Amy's Creative Side hosts the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I participated a few years back and thought it just might be time to do it again. This year, I'm entering my beloved Austin House quilt into the Small Quilt Category.
You can find all the quilt details in the original blog post from this summer, but the pattern is by Carolyn Friedlander, and I mostly used her fabrics for the quilt as well. This quilt was made as a wall hanging for my mid-century-modern-loving husband.
This was such a fun project, and I'm really excited to work on some more of Carolyn's patterns (like this fun Shirts pattern, which I bought at a recent workshop I took with her). I'm also currently working on a Catenary quilt as a hand-sewing project.
You can click on over to Amy's blog to see all of the entries (in lots of categories), and next week, you can check back in to vote on your favorites. Have fun!


  1. The fabrics you chose complement the pattern very nicely. I think the randomly spaced straight lines were a nice touch as well. This would be perfect for someone who is into engineering or architecture.

  2. Great quilt! The color palette is so beautiful! Good luck!

    1. I agree, this pattern is amazing and the fabrics are perfect!

  3. Isn't Carolyn an inspiration! Love your rendition of this quilt!

  4. This is such a fun piece. I love the fabrics and the quilting add to the architecture of the quilt.

  5. I just love this pattern. It's been in my to do pile. I like how you've altered the pattern a bit, and simplified it. and of course, what's not to love about doe.

  6. Such a cool design and your fabric choices work perfect!
