Two finishes

This is another lap quilt made from scraps to go in my donation pile.

This was a BOM from last year, and I can't for the life of me remember who it was designed by, so if you recognise it please let me know so that I can acknowledge it here. This has been quite densely quilted so that the applique hearts really pop out. It's going to a friend of mine as a raffle prize for the charity that she helps to run.

I've got two more scrappy lap quilts ready to sandwich and quilt and two more under way. I can really see the scrap pile diminishing now, which is really encouraging, though I'll no doubt be building it up again soon.

Update - thank you Pia, the BOM was called Flowers of Love, designed by Fiona Ransley of Designs by Fee

Two great looking quilts. Congratulations on getting the scraps tamed. They do seem to multiply quickly though.

Quite different, aren't they? The spools, or is it bow ties are jazzy, and the heartses are so pretty! And I think your quilting of the heartses is really stunning, even in the photo (which is never as good as the real thing, I know from infuriated experience) the heartses stand out! Well done to you- you really are belting along...you do know that modern sewing machines have a speed limit??

You are so amazing, Amanda! I can hardly believe you made those quilts out of scraps. Wow! They are absolutely gorgeous!

Lovely applique quilt! All that quilting! I wish I felt more confident about machine quilting.

I love both of the quilt. The first one looks like a spools quilt, like your scrappy look in it , and the bom is beautiful, really well done.
I enjoyed the pictures of Edinburgh. Did I read it correctly? 25 shows in one week? How fun!!
