Amy in the corner


Finally.

My first UFO is done, only the rest to go..... I'm quite pleased with it. I like the colours and the differet textures. The quilt is a blend of cotton fabrics and linen.

I started on this one when I attended a Workshop in November last year. The teachers of this workshop have written a book, and the quilt I made is one of the projects in it - highly recommendable.....


For the quilting I sewed "in the ditch" through the blocks and continued the seam on the whole block. I also quilted in the ditch around the green border, on both sides of it. On the outer border I used " borders made easy", which is a pre-made quilting pattern on a roll with adhesive on the back. It was fun to use, but I'm not very good at keeping a straight line if I have to follow one that is alreday there, so I will have to practise on a few other quilts as well.















I didn't use batting for this one, but went with fleece for the back. The reason for this is that those of my quilts that are frequently used, are the ones with fleece on their backs - very simple actually.....




The name if this quilt has its reason as well. The theme of the workshop was Amy Butler's fabric, and the block I used in this quilt is "puss in the corner", thus, Amy in the corner...



I hope you enjoyed this show-and-tell. I had a wonderful time making it. The plan for the rest of my UFO's are - one at the time. Upon finishing this one I've started on the most recent of my projects and I will work my way backwards, whic I found much more inspiring than going all the way back to who knows when....


Have a wonderful and creative week!!
