Jellyroll Sampler Quilt - Finished!!!


IMG_4927
This quilt is for my third grader, although there was some argument as to whose turn it was for a quilt.  All was resolved when their dad explained that over the course of their lives, they would probably be the recipient of many more quilts.  I'm glad my boys like the quilts I make them. :)

You're probably bored of hearing about this quilt, but...the fabric is Hullabaloo by Urban Chiks for Moda Fabrics.  Unfortunately, it's long out of print.  The quilt pattern is from the book Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott.

Here are some pictures of the quilting.  I really had some fun with with quilting each block a little bit differently, but I tried to repeat some of the motifs in order to tie everything together.

The nicest thing about finishing something is that I can now move onto something else!  I'm linking up with Fresh Sewing Day at Lily's Quilts and Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
