June was a great month to dive into the scrap bins & UFO’s and see what we could get done.
My Jacob’s Ladder queen size quilt (see more here) is now finished!
All scraps except my purple & yellow half square triangles which are Whimsey Doosie, this Michael Miller print. Simple quilting really lets the pattern do the talking, I think. I bound it in a scrappy binding just to finish off the effect. The backing is a great Thimbleberries backing.
I dove back into the scraps on the 4th of July & decided a Log Cabin was in order. I find these blocks addicting. Can’t put them down. In a week, I had 56 blocks, all squared up, 12.5”. Once that was done, I was able to walk away. I played with layout & decided the traditional diamond was how I would play it.
Then, as my UFO finishing luck would have it, a friend was in the shop looking for fabric to make a gentleman a quilt in a hurry. She works with a local church group making Prayers & Squares (that rhymes in the south ) quilts. I finished my UFO by giving her my blocks. Wow, that was an easy finish! I enjoy the block making best anyway!
I also got a jelly roll quilt that I pieced last summer finally finished
Same simple quilting pattern as the Jacob’s Ladder.
