Design Wall Monday

This weeks design wall Monday is on the cutting table. I'm making a small quilt for our grandpuppy, Jake. I plan to make the letters out of the brown tone on tone fabric in the picture. The letters will be placed diagonally, fused and stitched down.

The dog biscuit print is adorable. I think I bought it at the Bay Area Quilt Show. I'm anxious to get this little quilt made.

Design Wall Monday

This is my design wall this morning. You are seeing 2 tops that I pieced Friday. This is a variation of the jelly roll race quilt. I haven't come up with a name for this design. I changed the size and amount of strips for these quilts. I'm pleased with the results. I've got backing picked and binding made. I'm trying to decide on batting at this point. I'll keep the butterfly quilt for now, the other quilt is for community service. I hope to have it quilted and bound by the June meeting.

Jelly Roll Race Quilt Finished!

The quilt is done and was given away for a birthday present! Happy Birthday to Kathy! This is a detail shot of one corner of the quilt. There are 42 different butterfly fabrics in quilt!

The backing is flannel and I stitched the label on a leftover piece of binding. I machine stitched the label to the quilt. If I had it to do over again I would hand stitch the bottom edge instead of machine stitching it. It was a fun quilt and I'm sure I'll make more quilts similar to this one. For more information on this quilt, google jelly roll race quilt.
