I'm supposed to tag some people and I'm pretty sure lots of you have done this before, however, I would like to tag a couple of new blogging friends. Firstly Kellie who is a local blogger with a very cute family and she makes the most gorgeous quilts. And second Celandine a lovely blogger who I discovered last week. She makes and sells all sorts of lovely stuff. Go and say hi to them both.

The quilt is a wedding gift for my Brother in Law who is getting married this weekend (yes it will be a late present!) The pattern is the very popular Aunt Bec's 9 Patch from Amitie and is super easy and always really striking. It is going off to be quilted this week which is a first for me and I can't wait to see how it comes up. Now I'm off to bed - I have to 'work' tomorrow you know!!

Thimbleanna said...

Love the quilt Louise! And the meme too -- it's one of my favorites. Do you suppose we have some of the same weird Nigerian friends LOL? And I just read 84 Charing Cross Road a few months ago and LOVED it. My mom got me the movie for Christmas ('cause she loves it) -- she's reading the book now and when she's done we'll watch the movie together -- I can't wait!

Ali said...

I loved Shadowlands (almost as much as I love your quilt). And those Nigerians sure are friendly!

Amanda Jean said...

Gina said...

Absolutely stunning quilt, the fabrics are perfect! ...and I love Shadowlands too. :O)

Michelle said...

Love the quilt Lou. Loved it when you showed me the fabrics at Dunc's and I love it even more now. I can't wait to see the finished product. It will be stunning. I enjoyed your "Four Things", I even learned a few things about you. Hmm perhaps we need to talk more:)
luv Michelle

Dallas said...

Ooh, beautiful quilt.

Kelly said...

Oh I love the quilt, what fantastic colors! -kb

Jade said...

Great meme, Louise! Glad to know you're loving it at Amitie, too. When I grow up I wanna work in a fabric shop, too. And your quilt top is stunning! You've got to post it again once you've quilted and bound it.

Tamara said...

Your quilt is stunning! I really love it, the combination of fabric and colours is so pretty and modern at the same time.

Adding it to the hand quilting pile?

How funny, I am going to a babyshower in April, and the colour the mum to be would like for gifts is grey (they are very alternative, think Elle Decoration minimalist home). I have been starting to look for grey fabrics, and they are so hard to find, it does not seem to be a popular colour for quilts. I just love yours, it looks so modern. The touch of red in it is fab.
Thanks for the award by the way, have a great time at the wedding.

beautiful, beautiful quilt! I love big brother too!

Kristine said...

Just have to say how much I'm enjoying Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares too. I'm a reality tv fan from way back. The outrageous abuse he lashes out with and f-bombs in every sentence have us greatly amused.
Great quilt too - amazing in fact.

Cha-Cha said...

Don't we just love Amitie! I have made this same quilt and just love the fabrics you have used.

This quilt is just perfect. The colors, pattern and layout look so modern yet cozy!

Jenaveve said...

Just stopping by to say how much I love the fabric combination in this quilt. It's right up my alley. Are they from the Amitie range? Perhaps some that can be ordered online?
