Wrapping up June

Amylouwho show & tell: 

June came to an end – and so did my ’instant satisfaction quilt’… literally finished it half an hour before July 1st. I needed something fast and easy in between my hand quilted stars. And with 4 charms squares from Freebird Moda and some extra for backing and borders it was easy. I went for Camille’s ‘Coming home’ pattern. It her version it's subtle and calm. My version ended up being a bit on the wild side, but I love it nonetheless.

This is the front
And this is the back

And the best part is that it was tested and approved already this morning.

Next quilt project is a Charming stars quilt from Moda Bakeshop with some Riley Blake fabric. But before then another crafty project... Knitting. I have not knitted since I was a teenager, but we’re going to drive down to France soon and I can’t imagine not doing anything crafty for 2 weeks. So knitting it must be.

Lacking so much experience though I do not dare to rush into a complicated pattern – it’s a vacation after all – so I made my own pattern but are aiming for something like this – really simple:



  1. Your quilt came out so pretty! Love the fabrics and design. Have fun in France and you are brave taking on knitting. I have always wanted to try but thought I would master crochet first. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Your quilt is awesome and I just love the back!!

  3. Love the fabric you used that have the big dots on them. So fun and it makes the quilt happy and lively! Awesome work!

  4. Beautiful quilt..front and back!

  5. this is gorgeous! The back is so fun too...
    gratifying quilts are the best. :)

  6. Your work is very pretty! I would love to drive to France with you! Too bad im thousands of miles away! Good luck on your knitting! Id love for you to visit and follow back at mommiesandbeyond dot com. I do many crafts, hand sew, cross stitch, embroider and learning to use the sewing machine!
