Remember last week I told you that we had a quilt published in the current issue of American Patchwork and Quilting? If you missed that, catch it here. Then I told you the story of how the quilt came about and it’s LONG road to get to Kalissa’s house. If you missed that, find it here.
Well in the back story of the quilt, I had wanted to show pictures of the first version of the quilt that Kelli made. She had made it and gave it to her mother in law for Christmas. I asked Kelli is she’d mind going over and snapping a couple picture of it and last week she did.
Here it is….
Isn’t it pretty?
I loved the quilt when Kelli made it in more bright modern colors and I love it here in softer colors.
That picture is a little dark. Here’s another picture only here it’s laid out and you can see more of the true colors.
I can’t remember the fabric line that it was made with for sure…I talked to Kelli and we know it was one of Moda’s Collection for a Cause line…maybe Heritage?
This was done with one jelly roll and the quilt ends up being made with 80 blocks and is 73″ x 90″. A border could easily be added to this to make it larger.
I am so tempted to make this one…I have a scrap bucket of 2 1/2″ strips or I have a few jelly rolls lying around.
So which do you like better? Do you prefer it in the browns or do you prefer it brighter in the grays?
It is definitely a great quilt no matter which style of fabrics that you use. The quilt was designed by Kelli and both sewn by Kelli. I did put the borders on the gray one and machine quilted and bound it.
I need to stop writing about this quilt or I’m going to be upstairs in the sewing room starting yet another project!!
