done!!!


 



I started this quilt on Wednesday and I finished it about 3 this afternoon. Yahoo!!! I was fueled by plenty of coffee and mountain dew. :) So much I could say about this one, but I'll just let the photos speak for themselves. One thing I do have to say is hurray for machine binding! I fell in love with it all over again today.

The quilt measures 60" x 72".

Happy HAPPY Monday to you!

Fantastic. Looks like a quilt in a quilt. Love the swirly machine quilting pattern.

great finish! I have the same machine, and the same solution to quilting a big quilt -- put it on a big table.

Orchard Cove Photography said...

Do you have a resource for the number's fabric? it's wonderful!!

Mimi said...

I am speechless... your quilt is exceptional, absolutely beautiful. It's hard to believe that you quilted it with a sewing machine! Wowsers! I hope that I can pin it on my Quilt and Sew board to admire it again and again!

Poppyprint said...

The concept of literal rainbows is growing on me and quilts like this one are definitely helping. I just love the overall design and your quilting is perfect on it!

Lisa Walsh said...

Your quilt is amazing! You are so talented!

Orchard Cove Photography,

The numbers fabric is half of an IKEA duvet cover. I've had it in my stash for years! So glad I finally used it!

Love that stitching pattern!!!! I use that one a lot myself. I started doing it before I got the Sweet 16....used my Juki (like yours?) and it always went so well!! The results were great but I really like how you have applied it to a more contemporary look!! Stunning!!! Hugs, Doreen

Becca said...

Really pretty!

Renee said...

Wooohooo! It's awesome! I love those big numbers on the back, what a great addition. I finished a quilt today too, hurray for quilts!

Beautiful quilting and quilt. I find that the longer I spend on the quilting, the more I like machine binding.

teresa said...

hat's a lovely quilt! I wonder how you manage to quilt it on a regular sewing machine... I', working on my first quilt ever, inspired by your Stacked Coins Baby Quilt, and I'm about to go to que quilting part... I'm just not sure whether I should prewash the batting, and how am I going to quilt it on my sewing machine... :)

Jessica Christensen said...

Gorgeous. I love the spiral quilting. I have been wanting to try that on one of mine -- done it on pillows and small quilts, but never one so large. Yours is lovely.

Shawn said...

Love your quilt and quilting Amanda!!

Sarah (craftysorcha) said...

I love the colours in this, and the backing is fantastic.

Linda said...

Cute! Love the swirly quilting! :)

CrazyCatLady said...

Very cool quilt -- Yay for machine binding too!

Diane said...

OH my Gosh! I love it! love how you offset the blocks, love light grey-love the quilting.
that was a fast finish!

Kathy@KayakQuilting said...

You've done it again! Fantastic! The quilting pattern is perfect! And thanks for posting the picture of your set up for quilting. I am about to move to the dining room table to quilt a larger quilt. I wish I had a table to drop my sewing machine down into particularly when quilting. BUT seeing how beautiful your quilting is with your machine set atop your table gives me a goal to aspire to! Thanks!

Thimbleanna said...

Another beauty Ms. Crazy! I love the backing too -- I tried to get some several years ago for backings but I was too late! ;-(

Julie Nava said...

Oh my word!!! I love it,I am such a fan of the quilts you make and your blog is a daily read... but there is just too much of yours that I would like to do and I don't like having to decide which I should and which I don't have the time or fabric for - there's nothing for it.. I'll have to take a year off work :o)

Chase said...

how did I miss reading this... It is gorgeous! The quilting pattern is so cute! I need get more practice on that.The backing numbers fabric is super cute!! Is that from IKEA? I have always found challenge to machine quilt on a large quilt. Do you think longer table helps? :) have a great day~

Jilly said...

Love the bight colours, love the number print fabric, love it, love it, love it!

kathy-o said...

I love everything about this quilt! From one machine quilter to another - your designs are perfection! You inspire me over and over...

Katie said...

Jeneta said...

WOW!! How long did it take you to quilt it? I LOVE the backing and I LOVE that the 'rainbow box' is off centre.

Nana-Bob said...

so beautiful! wow is right! Love it!

Jennifer said...

Love those spirals!! I've been wanting to try those and you're quilt just inspired it even more. I have to ask, what fabric is your backing? That is adorable! I'm making several baby/toddler quilts and that backing would be perfect of them! Please share! :)

Carla said...

Holy smokes! Gorgeous quilting you've done on that. Sigh...

Betty said...

I am amazed at your FMQ and realize, once again, that I just have to let go of having a long-arm! If you can do this on that little ole machine, I must give it a go! Thanks for the inspiration.

Lorna McMahon said...

You've come a long way, baby! Beautiful work - all of it - well done!

Glynis said...

Amanda!! What a wonderful, joyful quilt! A jewel to look at this morning, especially in contrast to the snow and grey day here in Colorado. And the quilting. I have been paralyzed about attempting swirly quilting a little thing and look at you go girl! Love how you combined the straight line and the swirls. As always, honored to know you and inspired by your creativity!!

Kelsey said...

This quilt is absolutely gorgeous! Great job on completing it so fast, you must feel so accomplished.

Vicki Lou said...

Amanda Jean,

WOW....I love the free motion quilting. I love the use of negative space. I love the colors and the cheerful combination. I love the backing material!!

This quilt is a winner!

Tamie said...

Love your swirly quilting. Thanks for sharing a close up shot.

karen said...

Stunning! I love it and I wish I could machine quilt like that.

Carie said...

Well wow it's beautiful and WOW that's fast! The grey is a great accent to make all of the other colours pop equally and I love the numbers backing!

Carolyn J. said...

Hi Amanda Jean,

I was just browsing the internet and came across this information about YOU on the Quilty site....

"Amanda Jean Nyberg is an author, designer, and blogger who practically quilts in her sleep. She is co-author of Sunday Morning Quilts (Stash Books, 2012). She can be found on the Web at www.CrazyMomQuilts.blogspot.com where you can read all about how she is living up to her blog name. She lives in Wisconsin with her husband and three kids."

I heartily agree that you practically "quilt in your sleep". You are becoming a celebrity. Congratulations!!

Simply stunning!

Celeste said...

May I ask how far apart the straight quilting lines are? I've been trying something similar but I think it's become too compacted and tight.

Sew Create It - Jane said...

It's wonderful!! Congrats!
