I want to be buried with this quilt.
'Cause to me, this is what heaven looks like. ;)
And you know, I jammed a whole lotta firsts for me into this project:
- first 100% (ok, ok ... 90%) scrap quilt
- first low volume quilt
- first "modern" quilt
- first quilt I made from Amanda Jean & Cheryl's crazy awesome book "Sunday Morning Quilts" ...
What in the world took me so long?
I know. I was waiting for this book to take me by the hand and show me how to do all that ... and STILL make what I consider a "pretty" quilt.
My sweet, pink top-stitching thread. :)
Here's the back.
I used small "Lakehouse" yardage pieces from my stash that I guess were just waiting patiently all these years to be employed. I'm very proud of myself for not just throwing a bunch leftover "uglies" on the back ... which is what I usually do ... and then forever regret.
And the happy pokie dottie binding ...
When are YOU going to make a low volume scrappy quilt?
You know ya wanna.
