Quilty Love » A quilting creative blog

Just can’t resist photographing fabric.   Especially when it’s this pretty!   I actually opened this daysail jelly roll
up the second I took it out of the mailer.   And then promptly cut it up into little squares
for a scrappy granny square quilt.

This granny square quilt remains a quilt top along with several others.   The daysail fabric yardage will be released in February sometime so I’ll be waiting for that for a backing.   I’m thinking one of the florals will make a pretty backing.  I love this one but not sure if I’ll keep it or finally open up an etsy shop so I stop keeping all the quilts!

I used the remainder of this jelly roll on a fun baby quilt that I can’t wait to share!

  • Leah - Do you have a pattern for this quilt top? I would love to try making this, but with a darker background fabric, do you think a gray would work?ReplyCancel

I have been wanting to attempt triangles ever since the first try.   But I also wanted to use a ruler this time around.   I ordered Jaybird Quilts HexNmore ruler because it does both triangles and my other love Hexies :)

A pillow is a quick project and a good way to do triangles without getting too frustrated.
I pulled some simple modern fabrics.  I didn’t end up using the stripes at all.


The gold foil of this Brambleberry Ridge Michael Miller print is so gorgeous!


Basted and ready to quilt.   I prefer to make whole triangles on the edge and trim to square after quilting.


I went with simple quilted lines and a fun emerald green backing.  Since my go-to envelope style backing
wasn’t working on this one I attempted my first zipper backing.   Love how it worked out!

I have found yet another Cluck Cluck Sew pattern that I adore!   I have not seen a Shortcake quilt
that I haven’t liked.   It seems to work with all different fabrics.
I especially love the softer versions of this quilt.   So I knew this Tanya Whelan fabric would be
my fave for this pattern.
This quilt remains a quilt top for now but I do have the backing for it finally and it’s
on the list of things to hopefully get around to soon!

I have completely swooned over every swoon quilt I have seen.   So I just had to make
my own.   I’m realizing how I tend to overlook dimensions every time I start a quilt because
I had no idea this thing was so huge!  So I was surprised it actually kind of fits on our bed.

I decided to use the cotton and steel basics fat quarter bundle I had on hand.  After about 3 blocks
I was afraid I made the wrong choice but once it was all put together I loved it again!   This still
remains a quilt top as I think I’m going to make it somewhat a double sided quilt.   I haven’t quite
decided what it will look like yet.

These blocks do not go together that fast which isn’t a bad thing.   I found working on a block here and there
was more enjoyable than trying to power thought it all at once. quiltylove-1-2
