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 –

    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".

    Love it! I bet using big blocks made it come together rather quickly. I love fast projects. Nice job Amy! Jenn

    I'd say your Sister is very lucky-and your helpers are cutie pies!

    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? ;-)

    What a beautiful sunset! It's hard to capture those colors with a camera. You are making great progress on that quilt. Your sister must be so excited!

    How do you get so much gorgeous work accomplished in the midst of your busy life, girl?! Love the quilt top and the sunset.

    What a great quilt top! Those blocks look huge… big are they?

    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
