A quick quilt

Hi,

I need to blog about this quilt before I forget all the details.

On day we got a phone call to inform us that one of our good friends had fallen and broke a few ribs and was feeling pretty bad.

Fortunately we were on school holidays and I didn't have any other real sewing commitments so I came up with a fabric pull and a pattern and got busy.

The fabric is half a jelly roll of Carolyn Friedlander's Doe collection, a black tone on tone and Bella grey. The pattern is Traffic by Jaybird Quilts in lap size.

Because of the way this quilt is pieced it went together really quickly.

I basted this one on the floor because I was in a hurry, sometimes I go and use my mums huge cutting table but I didn't really have time for that this time.

The whole time I am making a quilt I am trying to decide how I am going to quilt it. I wanted it fairly simple. It still seemed to need something more though, so I added in free form zigzags to finish it off.

I posted it to our friends, who live a couple of hours away, and heard that there may have been a few tears shed upon opening it. It gives me a real thrill to give people surprises!

This quilt took a week to make. It was super fast, one of my quickest finishes ever I think. And I loved every minute of it!

Make it sew, Jess

What an awesome gift of Love! Perfect combination of pattern/fabric - masculine quilts are hard! I love the zigzag quilting and the pops of colour in the binding :)
