I follow Amanda Rolfe (@3and3quarters) on YouTube and she had a Quilt-Along-With-Me last year. I thought that the timing was perfect since I wanted to learn how to piece and quilt. I followed along (she gives clear instructions) and I even kind of imitated her fabric choices- funky geometric print with white background. The backing is a large piece of decorator cotton-weight Marimekko that was a bit too narrow so I made borders to it as a pieced back. I decided to straight stitch quilt it with the quilting to be heavy lines. I am in love with this quilt!! It's everything I wanted it to be!
