 Big Blue Whale by Caitlyn Baxter 
(2nd place winner!)
47" x 53"
Here's what Caitlyn had to say about her quilt-
"The Michael Miller Luxe fabric made me think of water, and water made me think of ocean animals. The first ocean animal that came to me was a whale because I like whales. We thought of the diamond shapes for the spout because the fabric has diamonds on it. I stitched all of it, and my mom helped me cut and pin the pieces. Mommy helped me quilt it, and she also helped me with the binding. I used Luxe Tumble Blocks, Fog, Luna, Midnight, and Magic Folk. The whale is from the Preppy Pod pattern by Elizabeth Hartman."  
  
QuiltCon East was so inspiring. We had an amazing time meeting all of you and seeing so much incredible talent

Quiltmaker's Butterfly Forest Blog Tour!

Our friend, Felicia Brenoe, of Felicia's World, wrote a lovely book called the Quiltmaker's Butterfly Forest
https://www.ctpub.com/the-quiltmakers-butterfly-forest/
The idea for the book was realized on a trip to the Ecuadorian Amazon. Felicia was inspired by all of the beautiful butterflies which made their way to the pages of her book.

Butterflies Rising (pictured below) was created using black and bright white Cotton Couture- it's gorgeous in its stark contrast.. like the shadows of butterflies in flight. 
Designed and pieced by Felicia Brenoe
Quilted by Gina Perkes
Detail of the quilt and the amazing quilting!
...................
In honor of Felicia's new book, we're giving away a bundle of Cotton Couture so that you can make Butterflies Rising (a total of 8 yards!)
C&T has generously offered to add a copy of the book to the prize as well! (They're planning to give away a copy of the book every day of the blog tour so check back on all of the dates below.)
