I like you just a bit

I Like You is the new line by Amy Sedaris for Windham Fabrics.

I have to confess, I'd never heard of Amy Sedaris but I did Google her and it would appear she can turn her hand to just about anything. Clearly, with her I Like You line of fabrics, she is not averse to colour.

So with two charm packs to play with, I added in a whole lot more colour.

The solids and the black and white spot fabric are from my own stash - the rest are from I Like You


And more on the back.



And then I diagonally cross-hatch quilted it with a thick 12wt multi-coloured/variegated thread to add even more colour. For those interested, it is a Sulky thread and quilted beautifully.



I think I like colour as much as Amy does.

Linking up with Finish It Up Friday

  3. Great quilt, I like the way the plain squares allow the quilting to really come to life. Haven't tried 12wt in the machine before but might have a go now.

  4. I am a fan of Amy's brother David's books, which are largely short stories about their family growing up....a vibrant family, so bright fabrics are suiting!

  7. I got distracted by your perfect stitches (and don't go blaming it on the thread!)The fabric is really vibrant and looks great with the additions from your stash.

  11. wow the quilt looks great. So vibrant and as I am typing in front of a window where all I can see is sideways sleet its a much needed boost of colour. What size needle di you use with the 12wt thread?
    Thanks
