Work in Progress Wednesday #6 Amy Butler Love Quilt all Quilted








This week I am proud to report that I got my Amy Butler Love quilt all quilted.  Feathers and Swirls and Swirls and Feathers all done.  I used aqua blue thread for my feathers and lime green for the swirls, I did this because the quilt is for me and I wanted to see all the pretty stitches.  I love this quilt from the back as much as from the front- the square in square pattern created by the quilting on the back is really fun.  Now all I have to do is bind it and I can start enjoying it in my living room.  I don't typically keep the quilts I make so this one felt like a luxury from the start.  It took up all my free time this week so that is all the progress I have to report.  As for next week I have already pulled fabric for a quilty gift for my mom's birthday on the 25th. She has been requesting some new pillows for her new house, but I am committed to doing what inspires me- so we will just have to see what I come up with.

    1. thank you- colorful threads are a personal favorite of mine, not everyone likes a contrasting thread color, but I really think it adds to the design if done right.

    1. Thanks for your kind words. I am a lucky girl- my BF scored all that thread (hundreds of spools) from a drape maker who was going out of business- and then built me the thread wall as a back drop for all my pictures- very lucky indeed.
