Bloggers' Quilt Festival 2012

Central Park has to be one of my favorite fabric lines of all time.  The vibrant colors, whimsical patterns, and the little squirrel with an acorn really spoke to me and I splurged and bought so much of it!  I chose to make a cracker box quilt for my first Central Park project.  I think this is the point in my short quilting career that I've identified where I begin to use much bolder colors and a neutral other than white.  Previously, I thought all quilts had to use a white background with pastel colors :)  I also experimented with echo quilting and am in love with how this one turned out!

I completely agree -I think Central Park is my favorite line ever! You did a beautiful job. I've been hoarding mine so far - not sure what I'm going to do yet. :) Thanks for the inspiration!
