One block wonder quilt

I did it!

I finished my Onee block wonder quilt! I had decided to enter it into the Bloggers Quilt Festival this year and had a deadline to work towards!

Amy's Creative Side

I'm absolutely thrilled the way it turned out!





Making this quilt was a journey in itself...

I was inspired by a fellow member of the Modern Quilting group on FB and wanted to give the technique a try.

I had the yardage sitting on my shelf for quilt some time now...

I wanted to make a feminine quilt for myself for a long time!

Everything just fell into place with this quilt!

I had the ebook, the fabric, the cotton batting (that I ordered from Wrapped in Fabric), the perfect large print - feminine yardage and the most divine backing!


The process itself was so much fun, once I got past the cutting stage!


The top came together fairly fast!

And I decided to do just straight line quilting 1/4" on both sides of the row seams...

I really wanted to keep the quilt simple and warm...


And I LOVE how it turned out!


I chose an Indian Chevron print for the binding... I love how the colors go with the quilt...


And I just LOVE the backing! It is divine! Super soft!

I really like the way this one turned out and am thinking of many more of this style!
