The Anna Erin Ashley Quilt

Fabric by one of my two very favorite designers, Anna Maria Horner, design inspired by one of my very favorite bloggers, Erin at House on Hill Road and back design inspired by my very favorite quilter, Ashley at Film in the Fridge where her quilt backs are as beautiful as the tops!
Granted I had the cutting done already, but I put this number together from one end to the other, yesterday. What a great day manouvering through the many stages of quilting with little to no interruption or set backs. Good thing because it is being gifted (*sob*) this evening. I work well under pressure it seems!
All washed and dried, it measures 66" x 56". The blocks were cut 12" x 12" for the front and 5" x 5" on the back. The fabric is range of Anna Maria Horner collections from Good Folks to Garden Party right back to Chocolate Lollipop. The solids on the back and binding are all Kona (coal, cerise, pond and lemon). I just quilted in the ditch between blocks and then added a line across and down the squares for a simple grid pattern. I figured there was already enough going on with this quilt that I didn't need to further complicate things with the quilting!
Truth be told, I am sad to see this one go, but I do know that it is going to a good home with an owner as spunky as the quilt!

I love it! I don't have many from the Good Folks line and none from Little Folks. I love both lines and need to think about buying some before it's all gone. I've always wanted a Good Folks quilt since it came out.

This is beautiful. I have seen a couple quilts with large blocks using the AMH recently and may need to make my own.
