Yay! Ive finished another quilt. A very pink and girly quilt!
This is made with just one jelly roll - Coquette by Chez Moi for Moda and some Kona Snow.
It came together really quickly. I didn't even spend ages arranging and re-arranging the blocks as I usually do - they just sort of fell into place first time round.
The backing is even more pink.... and I used the remaining strips of jelly roll to make a scrappy binding.
It is quilted with a simple straight line quilting 1/4" away from the seam lines.
When I bought the jelly roll, I didn't realise quite how pink it was. Too pink for this house and I don't yet have any "girly" relatives to give it too, so I think this would be a good quilt to donate to Siblings Together
As it's Wednesday, I also have a couple of Wishful Wednesday projects to share with you (the things I would like to make if I had a magical unlimited amount of time!)
First up is a knitted shawlette
Although I wasn't keen on them at first, shawlettes have grown on me over time.They are a quick way to dress up the jeans and T shirt that I'm wearing, when I'm off out and running late - a bad habit of mine!!
This is a free pattern and the equivalent yarn for UK knitters would be any aran weight yarn
And secondly, I have this crochet butterfly to show you.
I really must try and make time to have a go at these - I know they wouldn't take long. Again a free pattern (UK terminology) and you can find it here
The Le Challenge theme this month is wings - I've already planned my entry, but a few of these might just find their way into the photograph too! If I can tear myself away from the garden sunshine we have at the moment, that is...
I hope you like my pattern choices this week, and that the spring sunshine is filling you with energy and enthusiasm too.
Till next time..............Julie
