Amy Butler Lotus Quilt Finished
This is a quilt I have had a loooong time in the making. I just finished sewing down the binding and took a few pictures. I bought the fabrics for this quilt as a kit because I really loved Amy's Lotus line and just wanted to make something quick. Where I bought it from, she had two kits, one in the pink/green colorway and one in the blue/green range. I remember thinking that I preferred the blue but wanted try something that was out of my normal comfort range. I was amazed how many people seemed to love this quilt when I posted pictures of the finished top. I can't say that it is one of my favorites, but it was fun to make. In particular I am quite proud of the free motion quilting I did on it with the daisy pattern. It is an easy pattern to do, but since I am new at the whole free motion quilting on a domestic machine thing it is quite exciting. I can't wait to do more quilting actually. I have A LOT of quilt tops to finish so I will be doing more finishing of projects instead of starting (HA! HA! -- if I tell myself this enough it might actually happen -- or not!) in the next year or so.
