I just finished adding extra borders to my Laundry Basket Quilts Alaskan Holiday quilt top. I wanted a bed size quilt. I love the diamond border. I pieced this top during the Quilt Along that happened in December. The extra borders start with the pink one. it's 113.5" square. I took pictures outside today
Flannel for batting to make it more summer/spring density. Found the Daisy fabric at Joanns and it screamed, "Take me with you!". Had the perfect pattern to use. Have made two others from same pattern just in different size orientation. I think it turned out nice. White 108 inch backing on the back. Used a varigated yellow and varigated teal in the stars. A lite silver gray on rest of top. Used a ruler and free motion for quilting. Still need practice with the rulers, but getting better, still need to slow down. Always in a hurry!
My daughter asked me to make a quilt for her boyfriend of three years. We looked for fabric together and she ended up selecting the "Wild at Heart" layer cake by Riley Blake. As it turned out, I had also picked up a layer cake of this fabric as a daily deal. He is very tall so we needed both layer cakes. This one is 80 x 101, the largest quilt I've made to date. After looking at the fabric I decided I didn't want to cut it up into small pieces. I remembered Jenny's Super Simple Squares. Jenny used charms but I used the layer cake. It was backed in snuggly Shannon black fabric. I really like how it turned out. Better yet, he loved it!
