My Sister's Amy Butler Obsession Quilt Preview

My sister Monica came up to assist me with the girls, but while she was here she wanted quilting lessons. I was overjoyed to oblige :D I took her to a local shop where we spent hours picking out fabric(or so it seemed...though it was less time than it took us to pick out bedroom paint colors!) . Monica LOVES large modern patterns and was practically drooling over the Amy Butler lines Bella and Daisy Chain.

We wanted her first quilt to be simple so we cut out 5" squares from 6 different fat quarters. Monica arranged them on a diagonal stripe and we went to work. The borders are cream and navy. We finished the top while she was here and I'm going to quilt and bind. I get to use my brand new walking foot (a gift from my hubby)! It may take me the rest of the year to finish...

Here is a sneak peak:
