A while a go I saw one of these ‘quilt as you go’ quilts pop up in my Pinterest feed. It was a little shaggy and pastel so I sort of ignored it. But the idea stuck and when I picked up a nice jelly roll of florals (not normally my thing) I thought it would be nice to try out. I followed some basic instructions here A Cuppa and a Catchup – this wasn’t the one I originally saw but what Google brought me when I searched. She doesn’t use a jelly roll for her’s but the concept was the same.
As you can imagine – the quilt is super fast. The only issue was that you end up with a lot of vertical stripes. To add a little interest, I inserted a eyelet lace border into the binding and some appliquéd butterflies into the corner. I am VERY happy with those butterflies.
We took the quilt out to Jack London State Park and photographed it at the Wolf House. The boy is just finishing The Lost Hero which has it’s climactic fight at the ruins. It’s awesome, go check it out.
