Blogger’s Quilt Festival Original Design Entry – Life in the ER Quilt

Have you ever heard of the Blogger’s Quilt Festival?

I hadn’t until this year.  People introduce their quilts virtually into one of several categories.  I thought I would throw my hat in the ring for a couple quilts I have made over the last year.  If you’ve seen these quilts before please forgive me for the repeat posting.

Into the Original Design Category, I decided to enter my “Life in the ER Quilt”.  It is a quilt design based on a painting I saw on Pinterest.  I made it out of Marcus Organic Cotton Canvas which gives it a very solid and bold feel.  It gets it’s name from the fact that it reminds me of the ER I work in with the central “heart” of the ER in red and the beds on either side.  This quilt was beautifully quilted by Emily Sessions.

    1. Interesting. It, does look a little like scalpels and also there is the red like blood. Definitely a medical connection. 🙂
