Olive Rose Quilt Top


Posted on July 28th, by Amy in work in progress. 5 comments

I did manage to eek out enough time to finish the top I showed you last week! Our weekends tend to be less routine and more fun family time – which in turn equals less sewing time. . . I like it that way. :)
Please excuse the bits of mess you see behind it. . . :) My house is only ever half clean!
Do you see the patterns emerging? I like it! I didn’t really expect it that way. I just wanted to balance the red and brown in each block. I had actually thought the blocks would go in the other direction originally – it pays to lay it out and see what works. :) I think it will be a nice fall lap quilt, especially with the corduroy backing.

For my next project I think I may work on AmandaJean’s quilt-a-long – I have been loving all the blocks that keep popping up in blogland.

    Ooh…corduroy backing…that’s brilliant. I rarely depart from the quilting cotton, but I do think it’s so cool when it’s done.

    I love the fabrics and the pattern emerging. In fact I may buy some of those fabrics today. :)
