I sewed something

I just had to share a little something I sewed this week.
The random brushed plaids felt fallish to me.
I’m especially jazzed about how the colors turned out.
Wow, it feels so good to get behind my machine again.
But I kind of feel like I’m cheating because the rest of my house is so out of whack.
So I’m making myself buckle down and finish unpacking before I do anymore.
But wow, it felt good.

This one still needs a border. I’m thinking orange.

In other news:
Tomorrow I am blog-sitting for Aunt Spicy, so drop by!

And secondly, if you were ever contemplating getting the kit for the Amy Butler quilt I made for American Quilting this past summer, now is your chance. They are 40% off for a shop-hop this week and they’ll probably be gone by Saturday. The number to call is 801-802-7841. Good luck!

UPDATE: the kits are gone! Wow. Faster than we thought.

I am finally finishing the pattern for this quilt, along with baby sized version. Hope to have it in my etsy shop next week in downloadable PDF form!

    Oh, I love the plaids! And you&#39;ve got such a good balance of colors, I really like it!<br /><br />And can I just say, the cuteness of the phrase &quot;I sewed something&quot; set me giggling. πŸ™‚

    Amy, I love it! LOVE it! I so so so wish I had time to sew… maybe I can squeeze in some time after I give this presentation in Philly next week… Songs and Flowers of the Wasatch (poetry book written for the 1893 Chicago World&#39;s Fair)… at least it&#39;s a fun topic!

    my grandpa passed away about a month ago, and i have been thinking about making quilts for all his children, my aunts and uncles, from his clothes and this plaid quilt you made is perfect…i have been searching around for ideas but sometimes i find true inspiration. i am filing this away so that if this idea works out i can find this quilt again.

I just adore it! <br /><br />I&#39;ve added you to my blog roll and have been searching through your archives through my entire lunch. <br /><br />Tracey

    I happened to be looking for a way to use my big flannel fat quarter bundle from Holly Taylor. I have had it for years. I like this flannel quilt and I like hst’s. Should I make them large, like 8 inches So the prints show? Did you put batting in yours? I was also thinking of squares, but with a pattern of different sizes. Thank you!

      HI Judy!

      I think large HST blocks are a great idea – especially if you’ve got large scale prints. I did finish this quilt with batting and a backing.
