AMH Economy Block Quilt

For those who may not know, I have a small (large) obsession with Anna Maria Horner. I have a full fat quarter set of every collection from Good Folks forward. She basically can do no wrong. However, my collection just sits on its pedestal (entire shelf) and stares at me. I can't cut it because I can't restock it.

At the beginning of this year when the #economyblockalong started, I got brave. And this happened.

O my goodness. It is amazing. Here's how it came to be.

I took all the AMH off it's special shelf, threw it on the floor, and separated it into colors. Then I stared at it for days thinking "I cannot cut this. I just can't".

Then I did, and I hated it. I got the red and orange up on the wall and decided that this was not working. My IG friends convinced me to keep it going. 

Once I got the yellow up, I was a little more sold.

And by the time the green started, I knew something magical was happening. 

This is basically the ultimate tribute to Anna Maria Horner. Now it is time to have it quilted. I think I am going to get mom to do it because it it huge. 80x80. The only other quilt that size that I have pushed through my machine is the Single Girl, and it was no picnic. Hopefully more pictures soon!

Stacking Color

Stacking Color (also known as the Pelvis Quilt) is now available on Craftsy!

Thank you for being patient with me. I finished it last week, and my work computer DIED the night before I wanted to publish it. I woke up, no working computer, no file. NO FILE. O. M. G. Long story short, my amazing tech-y sewing friends were able to recover it using a PDF draft that I found. Thank you friends!!!!!!
