After Jacob moved out, his bedroom needed a new facelift so before our house guests from the Netherlands arrived I made new bedding. I didn't have a pattern for this quilt. I used 5" charm squares, a layer cake and yardage from the Hometown collection from Sweetwater.
Not to shabby, huh.
And pillow sham's to match. I will show you the whole new look at a later time. Let's just get caught up from all the events that took place in September.
A quilt tradition of mine is to give the grandkids a new quilt for their third birthday. This is McKinley's quilt. This quilt was made from just one layer cake and some solid yardage. It is the Veranda line from Robert Kaufman. I picked this cute line up at market in May with McKinley in mind. It just fit's her cute personality. The backing is lavendar cuddle (minky). And in with the binding I added purple rick rack. A fun accent to the finished quilt, I think.
And the pattern I used came from the fun new book by Sweetwater. It's called the Familyroom quilt. I can think of so many other fabrics this would be fun for. You might have to have this book.
And the quilt I just finished up last night is called the Jellyroll 1600. Marsha taught us how to make this quilt from one jellyroll peiced together end to end, then cut and sewn together with five seams. There are other variations to this quilt too. Watch for more on this one, it's getting very popular
My jellyroll was one I had in my stash from market 2 years ago. It's the Joel Dewberry Modern Meadow and the backing is from his latest collection Heirloom. The polka dot binding is from Michael Miller.
