Soy Amado No. 65

I've had a couple of months off from making these quilts but the quilted blocks have still been coming in. In one particular pile from Mina in Texas, there were quite a few blocks with white round the edges and I thought they would make a really interesting quilt.

So interesting, I came out of self-imposed Soy Amado exile to make them up into No. 65.



It's slightly breezy out there today and especially so at the coast, so what follows are not the calmest of quilt pictures.



Best one of the back I'm afraid.


And the backdrop in all its glory.



In keeping with the all white theme, I was planning on using only white for the binding. Then I found a backing off cut from my last quilt - hatchet block. I liked the tiny flash of red it gave so added that to the binding length.


And then I found a spot to get one final (and slightly calmer) shot of the front of the quilt.

  7. It's not often that the back of a Soy Amado quilt is busier than the front! I'm glad you're out of exile, albeit temporarily? It's a real beauty this one :)

  9. Squeeee! You have put these together so great! Sometimes I really wonder when looking at the individual blocks how they are going to work but then I just trust that you have made some beautiful quilts with these blocks
