May-Belle

Boy, this was a fun and fast finish...

from scraps to quilt in five days!



   My friend Deb gave me some "Belle" Amy Butler 

scraps and I couldn't wait to get sewing!


 HSTs first, then strips on two sides.

Subconsciously I must have remembered admiring a 




Yesterday I had a 'flimsy',



and today I stipple quilted it. 


I had a piece of flannelette in my stash, 

"Playful Penguins" from Wilmington Fabrics

for the backing...


which is no longer available,

so I wish I had some more!



I used more of that lovely orange binding from my 

stash too!


It is not a large quilt,

just 32" by 40"....


but it sure is pretty!

As if that wasn't enough prettiness in my day....


I received not one, but two bunches of flowers

for Mother's Day, from my sons!

I hope all Mums out there had a lovely day too!

Happy days indeed!

  13. I can't believe how quickly you whipped that quilt up. Looks great. You received some beautiful flowers - well deserved too I imagine.

  14. I'll probably shock you when I say that I'm not a fan of Amy Butler fabrics. I think it's because she often designs prints with florals, and I'm not a floral fan. However, that said, I'm sitting here wearing a top I sewed with an Amy Butler knit! And truthfully, I adore this quilt you made! It's really great. I like the way all the prints mush together. Usually I like more contrast, but this one works for me... and you too, I'm sure. Your stipple quilting choice is perfect because... who can see the quilting in all that printy goodness, anyway?! Nice work. And way to charm the men in your family... fresh flowers. You done good!
