This is the second time I've made this pattern. This time I chose all blues/aquas. This is going to be perfect for a baby due in August whose mommy and daddy are not revealing gender. It is 54" x 54"--large enough for tummy time, tent-making and story time snuggles.
I received a jellyroll for Chhristmas but it only had 30 strips. I used the pattern Train Tracks in the book Two for One Jellyroll where all the quilts use 20 strips. I was able to use the extra strips as borders and binding. Then gifted it back to my DIL for the grandkids.
I created this quilt for my son. He had moved to New Mexico. However, it took me over 8 years because I first lost the pattern and then the quilt and then my son moved back. Thankfully with the help from a good friend and quilter I was able to finish this quilt. Welcome home son.
My friend and I made this purple mushroom quilt for my friends husband to give to his wife for her birthday (she loves mushrooms and purple). My friend paper-pieced the mushrooms at a retreat months ago. We cut and sewed the remaining part of the quilt all day today. Her friends are visiting in four days. Quilt is 63" square. Mushroom pattern is from the book "A Paper-pieced Garden: 27 Mix-and-Match Blocks Plus Unique Quilts" by Maaike Bakker and Francoise Maarse
