It's finish it up Friday and I have 2 quilts to show you today. These quilts started when Abby suggested a quilt along over on Instagram following Camille's Jelly Filled Quilt Pattern. Since this was at the start of my Sewing with Camille challenge I was excited to have some friends to sew along with on one of the patterns. The blocks for this quilt come together super quick and I found that it was fairly easy to chain piece 3-4 at a time. For some reason I have a hard time doing much more than that although I'm sure there are many of you who could probably chain piece all of the blocks in one sitting.
As I was making this quilt I started to fall in love with it and I really wanted to keep it for myself but I decided that with all the pink and the cute little puppies my SIL would probably enjoy it for the new baby. That idea morphed into matching quilt when I went to visit my mom and she gave me her jelly roll of sherbet pips. I had enough at that point to make the first quilt larger but knew I would have some left over unless I made a huge quilt. My SIL is expecting her second child in just a few weeks so the idea to make a matching quilt for little sister (my brother is having a very hard time agreeing to a name for the baby-so we call her little sister) came about.
Abby also happened to over a sale on long arm services for any holiday pattern in July. I posted my quilt top and a few selections on Instagram asking for help picking a quilt pattern. In my mind I wanted something that looked like wind because the quilt scream girly fall to me. However, some of the snowflake patterns had caught my eye and I was tempted to go in that direction. After posting my picks Abby sent me a private message with a pattern she hadn't had the chance to add to her boards yet but knew would be the perfect fit for these quilts.
Both of the quilts are backed in the cream scoot fabric (the same as the boarders on the baby quilt) and bound with a white and pink square polka dot. I just washed and dried these last night so they are ready for gifting as soon as I have a chance to see my SIL. I hope she will love them as much as I do.
