Finally had the opportunity to take photos of my mom's summer quilt. I finished the borders on Friday night.
I took this at my sister's house since I was going over there for dinner tonight. As you can see, her wash lines need to be tightened up! I love the quilt and when I showed the quilt top to my mother this evening she was very happy. Quilty sister, Julie, said it has an "old fashioned vibe" and looks like an old lady's quilt - exactly what I was going for!
This afternoon I decided to try out my other new pattern so I pieced this one
It is supposed to be twice this size, however, I had a cheezy "jelly roll" from Joann's and there are only 22 strips in a roll - half the number that you would get with a real jelly roll from Moda. The pattern I used was from Thimble Blossoms called "Jelly Filled". This is another easy, quick quilt and I really enjoyed making it. As a matter of fact, Camille has a new quilt pattern called "Swoon". (Check it out and tell me what you think!) I am purchasing the pattern next week. I am over the moon about it and have the perfect scraps to make it. The quilt has a very traditional feel to it and I love all the neutral space. I am really excited about making the quilt. I think I am going to work my way through all the Thimble Blossoms patterns. They are very well written and easy to follow.
Have you made any quilts from Thimble Blossom patterns?
