Challenge quilt

This is my latest finish, my Amy Butler Stacked Coin/Brick Path Quilt which was part of a challenge with Ange and Teresa! I stayed up late last night (or really early in the morning) to get the binding done. This is a decent size quilt to, 177cm x 194cm. I am pretty happy with the finished quilt - even Dennis says it is not too bad now LOL! The finish date was August.......
Here is a close up of my quilting:

On the other side, I decided to make another pieced 'top' so this quilt had 2 pretty sides. I used Amy Butler's free pattern 'The Brick Path Quilt', this is really quick and easy to put together and even great for the beginner. If you would like the free pattern for this click here.

Here is a close up of my quilting on that side:

Of course, when it was sitting on the floor, Sophie had to snuggle it.... well, Dennis wrapped her in it....... she must have liked it because it took a little while for her to move! LOL


I am still working on those 3 dolls! The clothes are nearly all done, just have to hand stitch the hem's etc then I can start putting them together and doing their face! Hopefully I will have some to share this week....
I hope you all have had a great weekend

Well done Sarah - the quilt looks great (and Sophie looks very snuggly wrapped in it). I'm still trying to pluck up the courage to quilt mine! I think I might just do an "all-over" pattern - would be easier and less of a hassle compared with what I was thinking about doing. I'm still learning, so slowly, slowly is probably better! My friend is still a few weeks away from having her baby and I thought I might be able to quilt it and do the binding at Helen's Quilt Marathon.

I love your quilt, Sarah. You were very clever to make it reversible. Thanks for the link to the Amy Butler pattern.
