Soy Amado No. 20

Now I know I promised some fancy shmancy look back at the first 20 quilts but it's exam week coming up. Younger daughter was supposed to be producing the goods so if you don't mind, we'll have to wait a while more until she's able.

This is a 'blue for a boy' quilt I think.


I was on sparkling form as when I turned it round, I realised the text fabric was all over the place and really, I still think it should all 'read' the same way.

Love the random orange fabric

If you had a hand in the making of some of these blocks, please say. I'm losing track of remembering who sent what and would like to give a mention each time.


Thanks for your continued support and a big thank you to 'Donna' who sent me nine beautifully made pillow cases (the home will find those incredibly useful) and some blocks but what made me happy the most was lots and LOTS of pre-made binding. Complete time-saver so thank you.

  1. Another very different quilt. Great blocks put together very cleverly. I don't think it matters one bit that the text is in different directions on the back, it's more interesting. Carry on with the good work. Congratulations on the first 20 quilts, amazing achievement . Good luck for your daughter's exams.....I remember it well!

  2. great quilt again! I think text should go all over the place, because that way it doesn't matter which way you use it :-)

  3. Well done! It's certainly a masculine quilt. I agree with Francis Paul about the text going all over. It looks great in any direction when looking at the back.

  4. Love the blues and oranges in this quilt--they pop very well! And I agree with Francis--the text fabric is just fine the way it ended up.:)

  5. A brilliant finish. Orange and blue always play nicely together. I'd leave the texty bits - looks great as it is!
