Finished

IMG_9342 copy

Its been awhile since I finished a quilt and I had almost forgot how much fun it is! I put off quilting it because I knew the straight stitch quilting would take me awhile, but now I’m glad its complete and ready to use. The backing (I forgot to take a pic) is a denim colored broadcloth. The total I spent on the backing………… $3.50!!! I love making quilts, but the batting, backing and binding always get spendy. Even though I love a pieced back, I rarely look at the back once its done. So here’s to cheap backings, and I LOVE the way it washed up really soft. The binding is from the Wee Play line, and I love those letters popping up here and there along the binding! This will be such a fun quilt for my son to find the letters and numbers in.

I did a grid pattern quilting, a lot like I did on this quilt.

And its already getting good use watching Chicken Little for the 37th time.

This quilt is 52" by 62" finished. And I had a couple of questions about it I couldn't find a way to reply too. Its from a Jelly roll so all the strips are 2.5" wide and there is a very similar published pattern here.
Pin It!

What a fabulous quilt! Love the binding. I really need to quilt some tops I have had hanging around for years. Why is it that I keep ignoring them?

amy smart said...

Fantastic!!

Jessica said...

Wow! It is beautiful and fun to see! If I were a kid, I would stare at it and be amazed of the letters and #'s. I did that with my grandma's quilt, she made a quilt with state flowers in the squares, then hand sewed the flower's names! I remember staring at it for hours! You are so creative! :)

Stephanie said...

It's just fabulous! Instant heirloom. Well, kind of instant... Other than the hours, days, and weeks it took to make, of course.

This is really cute - and the quilting is perfect. Thank for sharing it. Other than the binding and backing, did you get all those blocks out of one jelly roll?

clare's craftroom said...

Love it , what a great quilt !

Cheryl Arkison said...

It is so summery. And creative use of a jelly roll. I have my first charm pack on the way and I've challenged myself to not just use it as squares.
