IMG_9342 copy Its been awhile since I finished a quilt and I had almost forgot how much fun it is! I put off quilting it because I knew the straight stitch quilting would take me awhile, but now I’m glad its complete and ready to use. The backing (I forgot to take a pic) is a denim colored broadcloth. The total I spent on the backing………… $3.50!!! I love making quilts, but the batting, backing and binding always get spendy. Even though I love a pieced back, I rarely look at the back once its done. So here’s to cheap backings, and I LOVE the way it washed up really soft. The binding is from the Wee Play line, and I love those letters popping up here and there along the binding! This will be such a fun quilt for my son to find the letters and numbers in. IMG_9293 copy I did a grid pattern quilting, a lot like I did on this quilt. IMG_9344 copy And its already getting good use watching Chicken Little for the 37th time.

This quilt is 52″ by 62″ finished. And I had a couple of questions about it I couldn’t find a way to reply too. Its from a Jelly roll so all the strips are 2.5″ wide and there is a very similar published pattern here.

    What a fabulous quilt! Love the binding. I really need to quilt some tops I have had hanging around for years. Why is it that I keep ignoring them?

    I love that binding! I am always afraid to use prints for binding, but that looks so fabulous!

    Wow! It is beautiful and fun to see! If I were a kid, I would stare at it and be amazed of the letters and #'s. I did that with my grandma's quilt, she made a quilt with state flowers in the squares, then hand sewed the flower's names! I remember staring at it for hours! You are so creative! :)

  24. Stephanie June 10, 2009 at 10:56 am #

    It's just fabulous! Instant heirloom. Well, kind of instant… Other than the hours, days, and weeks it took to make, of course.

    Did I miss a post somehwere about your etsy shop closing?

    This is really cute – and the quilting is perfect. Thank for sharing it. Other than the binding and backing, did you get all those blocks out of one jelly roll?

    Love it , what a great quilt !

  30. Cheryl Arkison June 10, 2009 at 3:04 pm #

    It is so summery. And creative use of a jelly roll. I have my first charm pack on the way and I've challenged myself to not just use it as squares.

    I'd love to get a copy of this pattern (and the one that's similar to yours that you've provided a link to doesn't seem to be available anymore) – you don't have one for sale? Thanks.
