The Lulu Roses Quilt top is ready for the longarm quilter.
I’ll give you some of the details now ….but I’ll post the rest of the details later …
I’ve had two ladies ask if I was going to film a video on how to make this quilt … the answer is I’d be happy to ….but ….. this quilt measures 66 x 75 and to be honest I prefer making smaller quilts. So, I’ll rework my blocks and come up with a smaller size…. it will be the same … just a tad smaller (to make it larger all you do is add more blocks).
- I used 8 patterns of Fabric … with one White Jelly Row (could be more .. I made some tweaks along the way).
- It’s 8 rows across … 9 rows down for a total of 72 blocks that measure 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 (plus the extra strips that measure 2-1/2 x 6-1/2).
- I used 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 squares …cut with the AccuQuilt 6-1/2 square die.
- For the sashing I sewed two jelly roll strips together (for a total of 88 inches … I trimmed the extra).
After making this quilt I’ve decided that I really like making quick and easy quilts and although this quilt was easy …. it was not as quick as I would have liked!! My next quilt will be something really quick … like maybe another flower or butterfly quilt.
I’ll try to take a better picture tomorrow …. if you don’t see it …. you’ll know I was unsuccessful and I’ll be looking for a way to take a picture of larger quilt.
FYI … the Raskog cart from Ikea is on sale this week for $29.99 … I’m headed over there tomorrow to buy two more for the lake house!!
p.s. thanks for all the kind words about my health and for leaving comments!!! I read every single one of them … usually twice. I don’t always comment …. but I really enjoy reading them. Thank YOU!!!
