Butter & Marmalade - Bloggers Quilt Festival



 I just found out about the Blogger's Quilt Festival from my extremely talented blog friend Rachaeldaisy  of  Blue Mountain Daisy. She has an entry in the quilt festival that you can check out here 
Thanks Amy, this is a great thing you do ! ..... AND
 thank you for stopping by to have a look around More Stars in Comanche. 

This is my photography entry  #11
 BUTTER & MARMALADE
I love all the fabrics Bonnie and Camille design, Marmalade was no exception.
The Dresden is one of my favorite patterns of all time.
I machine appliqued it, which equal, a peiceful easy feeling for me.
And the quilting as you can see...... is nothing short of amazing !

I wanted you to see this photograph as well. Look at the beautiful view beyond my Butter & Marmalade. 
We have a 10 acre trap just out the front door that is a sea of orange and white flowers right now.

Absolutely gorgeous shots for a stunning quilt, Dresden plates are one of my favorite pattern. Loved the styling with the jam and butter, well done!

You really nailed it for me with the first picture: I only see about a quarter of the quilt but I get everything: the design, the quilting and you put it in a context. I also like how in the second picture you extended the play of the name of the quilt into the picture. Too cute!
