Zest for your nest

My most recent flimsy finish is a case of “must do – drop everything and get started !” I don’t know why I get like that but it happens. I saw this quilt by Amy Smart during my morning internet perusal and I had the fabric ordered by noon ! It was my first time ordering from Adrianne Ove of ilovefabric and let me tell you; it was sweet !

My international order was shipped super fast ( I think it took a week whereas those usually take 2-3 weeks ) and I received this cute little Thank You card and treat ( it’s the small things folks 🙂 )

Here is a shot of the selvages, in these times it is so good to receive a subtle positive message

I loved Amy’s layout sooo much but really tried to put my own spin on my work. It is also my first try at improv – not as easy as I thought but still not difficult.

The Thicket collection by gingiber has two different sized animal panels and several black and white prints. Before I dropped everything for this project I had been working on a top that includes quite a few black and white prints. So I was confident in just ordering a few of the Thicket prints to carry those textures found in the animal panels throughout the top. I have made the backing and am trying to figure out a plan for quilting it.

Thanks so much for having a look !

Linking up with Amanda for Finish it Up Friday.
