I wanted to squeeze in a last finish for January…this was actually finished a couple of weeks ago but I was waiting for it to be put up!
It still needs some finishing – the rail needs to be trimmed. But that is a minor detail, the main thing is that it is up on the wall!
As always I changed it a bit – Just the background fabric…I used one big piece of fabric, it is a tone on tone cream with darker spots from my stash. The pattern calls for a jelly roll of white but I didn’t want to buy anything, cheap I know but really who wants to wait – it would have taken me at least a week longer to make just waiting for the JR to arrive and I was ready to sew now!
I straight line quilted it which was a nightmare…straight lines and I are not friends!
All the fabric came from my stash so I am happy and No.1 son picked this pattern and loves it in his room so everyone is happy!
Next on the list for his room is the No Parking quilt from the same book, but as it is summer so I am not in a hurry to get this done yet!
Here is a quick peek at what I am working on at the moment -
I am putting the top together for the Marti Michell American Beauty BOM. Hope to have a finished top to share soon!
