Au Point, Mon Ami!

  

This lap quilt or large cot quilt is one of a set of three cot or lap quilts I made from one jelly roll of 'Mon Ami' by Basic Grey for Moda, using a pattern called To the Point by Amy Gibson.


The quilts are all made with half square triangles that are cut from joined strips of the jelly roll and I quilted this one with randomly spaced wavy lines.








And the girls came over for a look-see...


May 2017: I have donated this to the Lindsay family to auction at their fundraising quiz, raising money for their church mission to India later this year - what a great adventure they will have, full of purpose, and such a fascinating part of the world to visit. I wish them good luck for their trip!

  3. Congratulations on the beautiful finish. Great name, too. I like to take my queue from the fabrics when naming my quilts, as well! Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2017 global FAL hosts.

    1. Thanks tonnes! Is good to get some things ticked off (and quilting is my distraction from a busy week teaching, bliss).

  6. Three quilts from one jelly roll, that's amazing. I love how the strips are turned in each direction within the quilt. Great finishes!
