We love the creativity, variety, and brilliant colors of this quilt by Gemma of Pretty Bobbins. She used patterns from friends to make several of the different sections, and throughout the article you can find links to the patterns. She is also running a special drawing for a bundle of the patterns that went into the quilt, so be sure to sign up! More from Gemma:"Back in April I was Queen Bee for Wombat Stew, a paper piecing bee. I struggled with a theme from the beginning, I really wasn’t sure that ‘celebrate’ would work. I put together an inspiration board and by the time my month rolled around I hadn’t thought of anything better so I decided to go for it. I asked the girls to make blocks of any size to fit the theme ‘celebrate’. I planned to make a wall quilt to hang every time we have a family celebration. I also like the challenge of making a quilt from different sized blocks. I asked the girls to stick to fun, bright and relatively gender neutral colours (so pink is OK but not all pink). You can see some progress shots here. Today it’s all about the big reveal! (And if you really like the patterns you should keep reading right to the end *HINT HINT*)"
