Soy Amado No.86 and onwards...

It's official, I have become an extremely lazy blogger. Sadly it's so much easier to quickly post a picture update to Instagram and be done.

It wasn't until I was contacted this week by someone who has been very supportive of Soy Amado that I realise that I should update here as well and not assume everyone else is hanging off my every word on Instagram instead ;-)

So, here we go:

No. 86.

No. 87.


This was a whole one sent to me by @grannyjack123 (on Instagram)

No. 89 was also from @grannyjack123 and by this stage I was feeling I really ought to make some more.

So No. 90 is me back on the case.

And I pressed on quickly with No. 91.

And No. 92.

No. 93.

No. 94.

No. 95.

No. 96 was a bunch of orphan blocks very kindly sent to me by Ingrid (@obsessivequilter on Instagram...are you starting to see a pattern here as to why the blog has been neglected?) which I added strips of fabric around, to size up to the requisite 12.5" block size.

No. 97.

No. 98.

Then there was a new delivery of quilts; to a home in Cape Town, South Africa for children who have been deemed 'at risk' in their family homes and removed.

So that's all the motivation you need to continue.

No. 99.

No. 100.

No. 101.

No. 102.

No. 103.

No. 104. This was another whole quilt sent to me by @grannyjack123

As is No. 105.

And that's where I'm at - still making them. If you want to help, all the details are in the 'giving back' tab. Even if you can't manage 12.5" quilted blocks, scrappy binding has been really great to receive as  it cuts down so much time having it all ready and to hand.

I have been sewing other stuff but that's a blog post for another day.

Just need to fit that day in.
