the missing u












This weeks friday finish is a popular design from sunday morning quilts by amandajean and cheryl. My second quilt from their book!

the missing u is 72" * 72", quilted on long arm with a lovely quilters dream polyester batting

I started out using mostly larger scraps and ended running out of them before I had made enough blocks for the top. After a while I got the idea to add some blocks pieced from small and really small scraps, too. Love how these small pieces invite you to have a closer look...

The quilt is thick, heavy and warm, very cosy. Look forward to wrap myself up in it. Nothing like having a warm quilt to sit under while watching the winter olympics...

; )

Wish you all a lovely weekend and Happy Valentines Day!

I really like this scrappy quilt - somehow they're often ends up a bit more interesting than the very fabric coordinated ones. And I'm totally with you on the warm and cozy quilts. I used the same batting for a recent quilt and with a thick fleece on the back. It's so warm DS uses it as a duvet.

Oh! This is really wonderful. I love the white centers and your crisp, fresh colors. I also love the variety in your scrap sizes. It really adds interest. It looks great with the all-over quilting. Have fun wrapping up in this one! And happy Valentine's day!
