tanner reunion - bloggers quilt festival

Tanner Reunion just may be my most favorite quilt thus far.  I love the colors of Sweetwater's Reunion fabric line and I also love how they look with Kona Stone.



The pattern is a mix of log cabin blocks and charm packs, all sashed in kona stone.  



Quilting is organic straight line quilting.







I free motion quilted my nephew's full name along the border.   


You can read more about Tanner Reunion in this post.



I made an extra square, and covered some bottons.



These buttons are very easy to make with some of your scraps.





I covered a canvas frame with linen and secured a block that I quilted, for a wall hanging to go with the Tanner Reunion quilt.

A BIG thanks again to Amy for putting together this blog festival.  Take some time to enjoy the other entries.  And of course, we ALL love comments :)  That's how we know we're not just talking to ourselves.

  3. I love seeing this fabric made into quilts. I have some of the fabric and haven't ventured into making it into a quilt just yet, so it's fun seeing your interpretation for your Tanner Reunion Quilt. The backing presents a special surprise too! Great job!
