A Christmas Jelly Weave Quilt

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 1/4″ 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.  :)

Colorful Evergreen Quilt

Evergreen Quilt Tutorial

I made one of these Evergreen tree blocks a few weeks ago to test out the sizing….and since I already made one block, what’s another 34? 

Might as well make a quilt! 

This pattern is the Evergreen Quilt Tutorial I posted a couple of years ago (click here for link).  

I went through my stash for fabrics, and since I didn’t have enough white background fabric for this quilt, I used my stash of low volumes for a scrappy background.

I laid the blocks out a few different ways and my 9 year old decided this one was best.  I don’t know the official name for this kind of color layout…so we’ll name it rainbowized.

I bought a soft flannel backing at Joann fabrics, and quilted this on my machine with loopty -loops (my free motion tutorial is here). 

I machine bound it with a bee cross stitch print (these basics are my most used lately!).  My machine binding tutorial is here.

Besides this little project I’m still working on finishing up one more Christmas quilt…time to sew!
