Soy Amado No. 28

No. 28 rates highly on the cute-ometer.

Would you look at that tactile elephant ear.


I tried to pick blocks for this quilt that used tonal or plain fabric in the main, with just splashes of feature fabrics.



And I think it worked.


And the view from the rear.



Onwards and upwards.

  1. I've got all my blocks back for my quilt now and some new wadding, so tonight I will get cracking. Got a few blocks leftover which will be coming your way and a couple of others that I had done before I went away. This quilt is lovely and still can't believe you have made 28!

  5. I look forward to seeing each new quilt as they are all so unique and special. Love that for the kids sake, that they don't all look the same. You're doing a wonderful thing.:)

  6. So cool to see 15 of my blocks here. I couldn't have imagined them looking good together, but you pulled it off! I cannot claim the adorable elephant block though ... love it!

  8. So, please do tell....when do you eat, sleep etc? You tun these beautiful quilts out so quickly. How do you do your binding? You can't possible hand sew binding on that quickly, can you?

  9. That elephant was taken from a discarded project of my daughter's. So happy to see it has a home!

  11. Wow - you are really cranking these quilts out! Good work - this one is lovely and I'm very impressed by how you're managing to put together pretty cohesive quilts from what I can imagine is a wide range of block styles and colours.

  12. Another good 'un. What size are your joining strips, would it help to pop a few in with blocks?

    1. Sheila, Alison has a post on her blog about how she joins our blocks to one another. I'm making her a bunch of joining strips to send with my next batch of blocks. They need to be around 13" in length (a little longer than 12.5) and one inch wide for the front joining strips. Cut strips 1 3/4" wide for the back joining strips, then press them in half lengthwise, wrong sides together. Alison, please correct me if I"m wrong. Sheila, best to check Alison's post for confirmation. I could be sending her a stack of the wrong size!

  13. Another good looking quilt. I like it when you tell your plan for selection as I am often in projects that involve assembling a mix of blocks and can always use more ideas.

  14. Alison, do you cut your binding 2.5" wide? If so, I can pop in some leftover short lengths of binding too. Let me know. Thanks!
    I could attach mine into one longer length before sending if you like.
