I love Anna Maria Horner. I mean lurrrve. There's so much wonderful fabric she's designed, her patterns are always gorgeous and I just generally dig the whole vibe of everything she creates. If I was to pick one designer who has influenced my style, who's aesthetic I admire and inspires me to create, it is her. Anna Maria Horner is my creative hero.

You will find her fabric popping up in lots of my projects, if I could afford to buy more I totally would and there are of course the things I've made from her patterns:

And for my HEROES challenge this month I have finally completed the quilt top from the Feather Bed Quilt pattern and the fabulous bee blocks that my wonderful 'Bee A Brit Stingy' and 'Scrappy? Sew Bee It' friends have made me - for which I THANK YOU!!

I can only apologise for the dreadful pictures that are to follow. This is about 80" x 100" and I hardly have room to lay it out anywhere, it is going to be a challenge to baste!

Maybe a blurry pic of Lois enjoying the quilt top will make up for it?

For the back I did a jelly roll race thing using 5" strips of fabric I love (of course there's some AMH in there!) and then cut it to include the row I made of all the siggy blocks.

Hopefully once it's all quilted I will find somewhere to show it off... I'm hand quilting it though so don't hold your breath ;)

Now head over to Le Challenge and see some other HEROES projects!
