One Thing: One Week Challenge 3

Amy's Creative Side

I challenged myself last week to finish a quilt top. I had joined in my first quilt along over at Fat Quarterly. It was a pretty easy pattern, using one jelly roll to make cute patchwork blocks. I'm a little behind because "life" happened and I had a couple of busy weeks. Anyways, I spent all weekend frantically sewing my blocks together, then finishing the quilt top. But, I did it! :) Yay!

Here's my completed quilt top.

I decided to use my jelly roll of Botany by Lauren and Jessi Jung for Moda. I had been eyeing this fabric for a while. I love the sunshine-y colors! Then, when Fat Quarter Shop had a sale code for 50% off, I knew I had to get some! :) I had no plan for a quilt in this fabric yet, so joining the quilt-along was a great way to use up this jelly roll and not have to wonder, "How will I design this quilt...?". Now I just have to decide if I want to keep it, sell it, or give it to a family or friend. Hmm... decisions, decisions...

Go check out the other lovely entries for the Challenge week over at Amy's Creative Side. And if you have time check out Fat Quarterly too. I just noticed my quilt top is pictured in their "mosaic" of quilt-along quilt tops. :) Happy Monday, everyone!

**Also adding this post to join in Fabric Tuesday over at QuiltStory. Check them out for a glimpse of some lovely quilts. :)

So beautiful. I kinda followed the quilt-a-long, but I did it a bit different. I also used the Botany Jelly Roll. It is fun to see how different our two quilts look!
