I've had this little quilt nearly finished for several weeks, but I wanted to give it as a gift before I blogged about it. I just put the label on it and gave it away this week, so now it's really done.
Cheryl's beautiful book A Month of Sundays. This photo inadvertently matches the name of the quilt. That was purely accidental! (I may be a little excited about that....)
I used a very pale pink Kona cotton for the background.
The patchwork is made of mostly scraps, but I cut into a little bit of my (hoarded) briar rose fabric. It matched too perfectly, I just HAD to. There are SO many happy fabrics jammed into one yummy square.
I used a lovely garden green polka dot for the backing. More polka dots for the binding--no surprise there!
I stippled it with white thread and machine bound it.
It measures about 39" x 41". It is scrap project #62/101.
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!
The first pic is really great. Nice texture on the quilt!
Very sweet! I like the pale pink and the view!
This came at the perfect time, Amanda! I need to make a quick quilt for my daughter's friend who is in the hospital and I wanted to do an I-spy kind of thing, but I don't have time to piece 500 squares to get it to her by Monday. This is perfect. Thanks!
That really is the happiest combination of fabrics - love it.
Simple yet beautiful... I wanna make one like this right now! I'm never tired to check your finished projects, always very inspiring... Have a great weekend ;-)
Pretty as a picture! Such sweet patchwork and of course I'm crushing on that dotty binding and backing.
Such a simple but gorgeous design. I love all the fabric pieces and the background colour you chose. Perfect baby quilt. I have to try this with my scraps! :-)
so soft and cuddly looking, and I love that you dipped into the hoarded/treasured fabrics :-) Very inspiring to this fabric hoarder!
This is such a perfect quilt. I cannot handle that backing - it is so gorgeous! Awesome work!
All around sweetness! Love the dots and the crinkle from the quilting.
So awesome! What a great way to use up scraps. Love the back fabric, too!
that's some lovely crinkle! and an overall lovely quilt, too. what a great, simple finish.
It came out just perfect. And so clean and pure, the lines are. Great fabrics and such cheerful colors too. Love it. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful, Amanda Jean! I too am hoarding my Briar Rose. Lovely snippets of it in the patchwork!
This is just lovely, simple really can be stunning. x
Love the simplicity of this!
Simple and so eye catching! Another beautiful quilt!
What a sweet, but simple idea! Very cute!
Its a lovely quilt- and can I just say you have nice hands as well :0) everytime my hands appear in a photo it looks like my project was thrown together by an old crone!
So Springy! I really like that backing fabric ;-)
Aren't baby quilts so fun? The stippling on your quilt makes for such a beautiful result. Can't beat the dots either!
It's gorgeous! I love it. So glad you were able to cut into stash even. Yes, I'm glad about that. Enjoy ALL the fabric.
very nice too I like the way it has only a small area of block then the rest is beautifully quilted, backing and binding works so well too
A stunning way to showcase the small blocked prints. I love it, Amanda.
Love the green polka dot backing! And love that it was another scrap project. The count down is inspiring!
One word! GORGEOUS!! Love Briar Rose too :)
I'm really into simplicity at the moment - this is lovely :)
what a sweet quilt! There are a couple of prints in the Briar Rose line that I'm kind of hoarding too--most because the colors are so different from everything else.
I LOVE everything about this quilt. Its simplicity is beautiful! Definitely need to try this! Thanks for sharing.
I love the stippling on this quilt!
This quilt is SEW perfect. The small blocks adds eye catching or focal point to the quilt.
