In the nick of time I finished up this quilt today! It was my slow going December project, and today I sewed on the binding just in time to enjoy it for Christmas.
This is my Jelly Weave pattern, and to make it 2 colors, you just divide the strips needed in two colors, and use each color in each block. I put more details and photos of how to make this pattern 2 colors in this post of my black and grey version.
I cut the fabric strips from my red and green stash. The only one I would have left out is that really lime-bright green fabric...but I picked out the colors at night and it blended much better in the dark! I also didn't realize until the whole quilt was sewn, that I had used different colors of background white fabrics. Whoops!
I took barely any photos of this quilt in construction like I usually do. The downside of sewing late at night when the kids go to bed, is that I can't snap photos (or at least good ones!).
I did super simple straight stitch quilting ¼" from the seams inside the blocks in both directions. The backing is an aqua snowman flannel...the same one I used in the tree quilt from my last post.
This was a fun festive sew, and despite December being a crazy month and flying by in a blink, I enjoyed having a project at my machine to work on here and there. Plus I used up a ton of my red and green fabrics...and scraps of background whites that I now know don't match. :)
From my family to yours...have a Merry Christmas!! -Allison
