My Latest Crush

I bought a jelly roll of V and Co. Confetti Ombre Metallic awhile back. I really wanted to see ever color in the line. When I got it, it was even better than I had hoped. I made room in my creative schedule to make something out of it immediately. And this is what I made:
I stumbled across an on line tutorial for a rail fence quilt made from a jelly roll, and just knew that that was it. So I began piecing and cutting and piecing.
 I loved how vivid all the colors were at the dark ends of the fabric. The light middles were soft and beautiful.
 I quilted it with Pearl cotton in as many colors as I could find that went with the colors of the fabrics and I think it worked out well. Hand quilting has a softer drape to it ant that is exactly what I wanted. I used the black to bind the edges and it frames it beautifully.
     It's my new favorite lap quilt. It's small, but so soft and so pretty.
And for the back I added some of the leftover pieces to a strip across the quilt. I loved this fabric so much, that before I even finished this quilt, I ordered some more. I'm not sure what it will become just yet, but I am looking forward to using it. It's too pretty to let it just sit in the stash. Talk to you soon.

  4. So pretty! One of these days, I am going to have to attempt hand quilting. I think with perle cotton and bigger stitches I could maybe manage a pretty decent look. I love the back too, with the leftover pieces and the birds on a wire fabric....too cute!

  7. I Love it! I wanted to use that design with a jelly Roll, but I was scared it would be too small. What is the finished size?
