A Somber Sunday Morning

A while back (in July!) I posted about this top made from a Jelly Roll Amanda sent me.  I roughly followed the "Sunday Morning" pattern from Amanda Jean's book.  Although the colors aren't my favorites, they'll be perfect for someone who'll receive it through Covered in Love.

I was tickled to find the perfect plaid for border in my stash. There was even enough to cover about half of the backing!

For the rest of the backing I used a great khaki colored fabric someone donated to me.  It has flowers, humming birds, bees and the like on it.  Perfect!

The quilt just got a quick large stipple for quilting.  I dealt with a lot of thread breaks on this one, prompting me to finally figure out how to adjust the height of the presser foot on my new-to-me machine and (as a result) finally be able to put a proper FMQ  foot on it.  Someone in the past had seen fit to glue shut the front panel so that mere mortals couldn't fiddle with things.  Nothing more satisfying than overcoming someone who thought you weren't smart enough to be trusted!

I hope your week was good and you have a great weekend!

  1. Nice! I like that design, have thought about making one, and you reminded me. Thanks.

  2. Your quilt came out great! Nice warm colors to snuggle with/in.

  3. That plaid looks like the perfect border for the quilt, too! Nicely done.
