The black frame really makes it all pop. and the pink ties it all together. Win!
Ooh, which fabric will you be getting? I know you had talked about making a jelly roll quilt a few months ago, but I can’t remember if you had the fabric for it. Will your birthday fabric be for that, or will it be for a different quilt pattern?
@MistressJennie, you never cease to amaze me! I am so impressed that you managed to just whip this up! I love that you will be donating it for a sick child. This will definitely bring cheer to any hospital room!
I got the farbics to try to make this quilt in a lip quilt size. I think I should try to make a jelly roll first, just to get some experience under my belt.
It’s really cute! I love how you used every color in that print throughout the quilt.
That came out so nicely! The black makes it look very smart, cute but not cutesy.
That moment when you’re chain piecing 30 4-Patch blocks, you get to the end and realize that you ran out of bobbin after block 8….
oh no! At least you don’t have to rip out anything…
Nooo . I definitely feel your pain on that one!
I got two of these put together today over nap time, and the border cut for them, and some black solid blocks cut for two more kid quilts that will use up some rainbow 9-Patch blocks.
How cute is this hot air balloon print?!?
Love those colors and that print is darling.
-I **marionberries ** , submit this as my November BOM entry.
And the last square for my DD’s quilt. Now for the sashing, etc.
Here are all the blocks. If I canfind the time I will make.a.mini quilt for her puppy Pippa. Half is upside down so when it is on your lap, you see thing from the.right perspective.
That is going to be a very engaging quilt! So many fun and interesting blocks! I love the mountain and the puppy!
I went to a small quilt show last week, here’s some of the lovely items of work that were displayed
Definitely not my work!!
Back in 2007 I made a baby quilt for a coworker. I didn’t have a pattern and was just making it up as I went along. As a result, I bought random amounts of fabric and just cut it all and made strip sets without doing any quilt math. But one of the cuts got messed up, so I was missing strip of pink. The extra blocks and scraps sat in my stash till last year. In between projects I finished as many blocks as I could with the original fabric, then pulled another pink from stash to finish the rest. I ended up with 39 9-patches.
Over the weekend I cut some black blocks, and today I managed to piece them into two baby quilt tops, one 6x6 and one 6x7. I think I’m going to add a skinny black border, then a wider yellow one, because yellow is the center of the 9-patches.
They will get put aside till after the holidays, then get finished with the other kids quilt tops I have, and get donated to Quilts for Kids.
Bright and cheerful quilts. They will be loved.
That is such a neat idea to make both sides the “up” side!
