Les fleurs bleu

I loved the Jellybean pattern so much but I didn’t want the “O” effect so I decided to sash between the flowers.

I used a Deb Strain Spa jelly roll and Kona white. The yardage isn’t available yet so this quilt will have to wait for a backing and quilting. I think I’m going to quilt it very simply by echoing the flowers for a softer quilt. It currently measures 55 & 1/2″ x 75 & 1/2″, I’d like to add sashing to bring it up to a double size quilt, 80″ x 88″.

I need a little break after today, something small and quick like a zippy pouch or a pillow cover. 😀

I’m a little late WIPing it up with Freshly Pieced but I wanted to have photos first! My triangles are ongoing.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Jellyroll Lonestar… Kinda.

I signed up for Kimberly Einmo’s Jellyroll Quilts class on Craftsy and I really loved her tutorial on the easy Lonestar. Even though I’m not a big fan of stars in general, with the right fabrics I think they can look really good. After I’d pieced my four quadrants, I shuffled around the pieces. (Sorry about the weird colours in my photos.)

Typical Lonestar

Half Lonestars

I love this but don’t know what to call it.

These remind me of flights for arrows.

This is what I ended up doing using Ruby by Bonnie and Camille for the stars and quilter’s linen.

For the back I used Tula Pink’s Damask Dot in Pomegranite.

A Cocktail Table Topper Finish

This was a satisfying project and although it took me two days (between meals and going out for brunch and family time), it flew by as it so often does when you’re doing something you love. As I mentioned yesterday, these blocks came together quickly and easily. Each block was flanked by 2″ strips of Kona Coal sewn in rows then the rows were sewn together. I trimmed the edges and used a Pezzy Prints jelly roll as a frame then a Kona White jelly roll and finally a Kona Silver jelly roll for binding. Daymn those jelly rolls come in handy and saved me a ton of time!

Tomorrow is a holiday so I look forward to one more day of sewing, I was thinking of making a Swoon block or start on the Loulouthi flannel rag quilt I planned awhile back.

How was your weekend?! Tomorrow is flag day in the U.S., isn’t it?
