Does this quilt look familiar? The jelly roll I used to make the first one made so many blocks that I had to choose – make one ginormous quilt or make two normal sized quilts. To change things up a bit, I sewed them en pointe, or diagonally. As you can see, I ran out of fabric so I cheated a little and added in some pink and black scraps. I also ran out of the white sashing and had to pull a miracle out of my stash to have enough. I think it works though after working with this fabric twice, I’m a little less crazy about the green than I was before. I think the white sashing helps a lot.
For the back, I used an IKEA remnant. Have I mentioned how much I love IKEA fabric? The prints are great and very funky and the prices are pretty good. And since IKEA doesn’t use standard US fabric widths, you get a lot more for your yardage. My bf picked out the back and I think it looks great :-)
This is Project Linus quilt #7. Three more to go!
