The pattern in Block F from Oh, Fransson's modern sampler quilt.
Last-minute photo before throwing the gift in the washing machine.
I had to be strategic about which fabrics I used. What would I have enough of? What would look good together? And in their home?
Ironically and luckily, I already had this back made from another quilt that I ended up not using. That saved a little time.
Love how the quilting came out! On the diagonal with two lines per.
At 10 a.m. this morning, I got a hair-brained idea to make a last-minute gift; a table runner for my in-laws who were to arrive at 4 p.m. I literally spent all day making this table runner putting the final stitches in the binding at 3:38 p.m. When they arrived, my hair was still wet as I had just gotten out of the shower!
The good new is they liked the gift and I got rid of over 150 grams of Amy Butler scraps! I still have over 400 to use and am considering issuing a challenge to myself to use them up within the next 2 weeks doing various scrap projects. Thoughts?
So, here is my day/project in pictures. Enjoy - and, oh yeah, happy new year.
