Completed: Amy Gibson's Craftsy class: BOM Sampler quilt!

Began this in 2012, following along with Amy Gibson's online class and finished it this past January with Leah Day's free motion quilting class (both from Craftsy.com)
Really cool to try a few new techniques and I love the pink colour scheme...the back is white with a pale mint polka dot section but I didn't take a photo as the white quilting on white fabric didn't really show in the photo.
Bess had to get in on the action...she is in the picture above but her black colour makes her hard to see! Much better in a close up!

  1. You should hire Bess out as a quilt model, Jen, she's an absolute natural and so cute, gorgeous yawning, feed-me eyes ... aaaaaah. Oh, your quilt's really nice too :)

    1. Thank you! Bess was just happy to see us come outside (the weather has been yucky so we had to shoot out in a break in the rain!)

    1. Thank you! Bess is so black that it can be hard to get nice photos where you can see her features! Yes, I love the pinks too!

  4. Congratulations on finishing your Craftsy BOM 2012 quilt. I participated in it too and finished my quilt in 2013. I love how you used the same color family in your blocks. Very lovely! Bess looks quite content to a part of the photo shoot! Love our pets - don't we? I am visiting after yours to my blog. Thanks for the compliments on the baseball t-shirt quilt. I am not aware of any of the Coyle family line in NZ. I don't know much about the ancestry other than they were from Ohio in the US.

  5. Sampler quilts are a great way to try new blocks and techniques without committing to an entire quilt. Yours is lovely! I love your quilting in each block too! Wonderful finish and bless is a cutie too.

    1. Yes, our Bess is much loved! She doesn't get to sleep on the quilts though (unlike the cat!)

  7. Beautiful job! You accomplished a lot of quilting techniques in the one quilt. It was worth all the time it took. Bess is quite cute also.
