Sew-n-Tell


Posted on September 18th, by Amy in sew-n-tell, work in progress. 35 comments

I can hardly believe that it’s Friday again – this week has been fast and slow all at the same time! Sew-n-tell is organized by ms. Amylouwho and all are invited to participate – yes even YOU :)

Remember those Panache fabrics? Last Friday I cut them up, and started putting them back together — the end result — a quilt top for my sister!

Natalie's Quilt Top

A peek at the details -

And my helpers -

Natalie's Quilt Top

Looks nice and sunny out, but just a few hours later we had this – he’s pointing at the lightening he just saw, and was about to run into my lap for the thunder. Poor boy – still gets to him.

However by bedtime (for the kids) we were rewarded with this beautiful sunset.
Really pretty, and more beautiful in person. I hope you have a great weekend! We are having friends over tonight, and I hope to baste this quilt top, probably tomorrow, and get started on finishing it.

Blessings -
Amy

    Beautiful quilt! you photo of the sunset reminds me of the saying my Nana always used to say, "Red sky at night – sailor's delight. Red sky in morning – sailor's take warning".

    It's lovely!! I really like how the blocks are kind of optical illusional…there's big blocks, blocks within blocks, etc.

    So…how are you going to quilt it? ;-)

    The quilt top looks wonderful. It is a very intriguing pattern the way it looks intertwined from a distance. The fabric colors are in fact my favorite part of it. Are your little helpers learning to quilt? Thanks for sharing your work!

    love the quilt; the babies are cuter! Decided what I want for my quilt…someday; creamy white squares with a quilted design inside of them individually? Then borders around each square of some beautiful fabrics; I'll have to start looking! Love you, Hon, Mom
