I had to take pictures indoors. We have fall for sure and almost a frost last night as well. I saw the quilt online and designed my own measurements using 2 and half inch strips for all of it. But no, I did not have any jelly rolls. I had some beautiful kona solids from a kit I never made, and had to buy a second batch of colors. The main fabric is more of a vivid light aqua not a gray or light blue.
Here is a close up of the quilting detail done by a long arm quilter, not me. I love how it compliments the patchwork design.
Here is the back which was pieced in between the fabric I also used this fabric print on his brother's quilt made last year. These are 10 inch blocks.
And the best part is that I get to deliver it in person to Louisiana. Can't wait to see the boys!
Secondly, I finished the lap quilt for my daughter's beau:
Here is an up close so you can see some of the fabrics, the fabulous Wisconsin border, and the inside border which also became the binding.
This is an overall photo also done indoors. The pattern is Yellow Brick Road, an oldy but goody.
This is the back pattern which is an overall elongated geometric swirl quilt also done by a long arm lady. And the back is a nice soft gray minky in extra wide so I did not piece it.
And since I am on a roll:
Lastly, here is the old pillow cases I made my daughter eons ago. It is faded, and not at all attractive. Plus the 2nd one actually had rips in it.
Phew! Lots done in the last 2 weeks.
