Grayscale Finished!

Grayscale Quilt and Block Tutorial

I’ve had more questions about this quilt than maybe any other since I posted the top over a year ago.  I made this one with two jelly rolls I talk about here, and there is a tutorial for the blocks found here.

I opted for a pop of color and did a bright back and binding.  These 108″ widebacks from Windham Fabrics are so handy!  This one is a print from my Dixie fabric line.

I tried to get a good full shot of this one but it’s tricky when my quilt holder upper is only 3 1/2 ft. tall and tries to be in every. single. picture.  I have to bribe her to stay out of the shot or hurry and take them when she’s not looking.  


Oh to be 4. 

I just noticed her hoodie was on AND ZIPPED UP inside out!  Lol!

Have a great weekend!

    Love the beautiful quilt and love the happiness of your quilt holder. I can still remember my own 44 year old daughter at that age and how much her dad and I enjoyed her mischievous spirit. Thanks for sharing!

    Love the quilt! The pop of color on the binding and backing looks great. Your quilt holder is quite adorable and I am very impressed with her inside-out zipping-up skills! Thanks for sharing.

    There’s a quilt in the pic!? lol I’ll take the 4 year old! What a happy looking girl. If I ever have grandchildren, which I doubt, I want one like her(but would take whatever I got!) Really like the quilt and that it’s made from jelly rolls– even better!

    Your little redheaded and precocious little darling has to be the light of your life. Sophie looks like Miss Personality plus and has to fill your days with sunshine and light. BTW, I liked the quilt too. lol

      Oh she does fill my days…she’s so much fun…and gets into so much trouble ;)
