Another big ol’ quilt is done. Well, sorta. It’s as done as it’s going to get until I have an attitude adjustment. I have loaded this quilt three times, and this sucker is huge. The first time I had to reload is because I was trying to conserve fabric, and I was an inch short on my backing. The next time I reloaded it was to do the side borders because it’s easier to do the long border fabrics as one continuous line rather than having to advance it and make it choppy. Well, instead of doing both of the borders at once, I had to keep stopping for silly stuff like cooking dinner, bathing the child, reading books, tucking the kid in bed, etc. So when I finished one of the borders, I quickly unloaded it and started squaring it up. And guess what? I had only done 3 of the borders. So, this un-quilted side will be on my husband’s side of the bed. He’ll never notice.
The binding is pieced with my extra jelly roll strips. I used a layer cake and a jelly roll to make the blocks. The fabric is Tranquility by Moda, and I made the blocks at a mystery class (sorry- I can’t find the link to the old post since I don’t tag anything), and put the blocks together at a retreat in December.
