Soy Amado No. 56

All the blocks for this quilt very kindly came from Ingrid (obsessivequilter on Instagram) so it was a pretty straightforward assembly from me.



We're out and about again as the weather is playing kinder today. In the background is Lihou island which is only reachable when the tide is out and you make your way across the makeshift causeway.

The one house you can see is the only house on the island and is owned by a trust who let people rent it out. It is used a lot by the schools here and both our daughters have had the childhood 'a night on Lihou' experience.

And hats off to the quilt holder upper who had just been picked up from the airport having flown from half way round the world, missing a night's sleep and been told they would be going home via somewhere so a picture of the quilt could be taken :-)

  5. Pretty quilt, beautiful landscape... Ah sky! Did you use the "potholder" method (seems so by the sashing on the back)? I am so curious about that method.
