Gah, I’ve been so busy doing things that I haven’t had much time to post. There have been plenty of quilts, plenty of bags and plenty of costumes (one of the items was 6! muslins for a dress). But I’ve finally got pictures of them! So here we go . . .
First up is this quilt for Grace Circle of do. Good Stitches. I’ve posted about them before and it was once again my time to be quilter this past April. I chose to do a Jelly Roll Twist quilt, a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop, with the variation that the square had to be solid, the strips had to be a print and it had all had to be pink. This was a totally selfish choice so I could use up some of the pink fabric I have leftover from another project that is still in progress.
These were the sample squares I posted. Everyone’s came back differently and I was a little worried, but I love how it all turned out in the end with a super scrappy and happy look!
For the backing, I used some wide back Riley Blake chevrons that I had purchased for another project. I ended up buying a different backing for that project so this was just hanging around. As part of my constant attempt to de-stash I decided to use this because it was pretty dang perfect and I was happy to free up the space. I love the look so I will definitely keep these chevrons in mind for future backings. Would love some in black and white. I was also able to use batting from my stash that was leftover from another project and happened to be the perfect size. Double stash win!
The binding was also from my stash! Again, purchased for another project that has been hanging out forever and that I’ll probably want to use different binding for by the time I finish it so figured I might as well use this one here. I’m really happy with how everything turned out with this quilt! I’ll be shipping it off to My Very Own Blanket this week.
