So I've returned in record time as I put the final stitches in the binding late yesterday! It feels so good to have this quilt finished...it has been a long time in the making.
When I start a quilt for no specific reason, I am usually trying some new technique and/or practicing and perfecting my quilting. That was the case with this quilt. I found this pattern/technique on Pinterest (here). I liked it and it seemed pretty simple...no two alike. I had this Bali Pops, Tiramisu, in my stash that a friend gifted me which I thought would look great!
Just cut your jelly roll into 4 10" pieces, mix them up and sew 5 pieces together lengthwise. Add a 21" background piece...sew it in a round and cut your lengths randomly. This gives the moment in the quilt.
The backing is a neutral background in my stash that again I was gifted.
Love using fabric from my stash!
The quilting is FMQ vertically in each column using this technique by Lori Kennedy over at The Inbox Jaunt. I just did the double loop leaf using a multi-colored thread (different color on front than back). In the background, I just continued the straight line using FMQ then did a diagonal grid on the top and bottom.
Another finish and it feels so good!
Hope you have a Blessed Thanksgiving where ever you are!
