We actually have two finishes this week. If you missed the first one, you can see it here.
This quilt is a bit of a joint project for Kelli and I. She provided the fabric. She sewed the top together. I quilted it and I bound it.
I am so glad that Kelli and I can work that way. She does the parts she loves…I do the parts that I love. We actually work really good together. Sure there are times when we do parts of projects that aren’t our favorite but that’s often because we know the other REALLY hates that part.
This quilt is Ginger Belle. It’s a Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company Design. The pattern can be found here in this quilt book, Miss Rosie’s Spice of Life Quilts (Leisure Arts #5026). This book is a favorite of both mine and Kelli’s.
Kelli added her own little scrappy touch to it making it even better in my opinion…but I am a scrappy girl.
I used this as the quilting design.
This quilt is going to her boyfriend’s Grandma….lucky Grandma, don’t you think??
Today I am hooking up with Today I am hooking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Link a Finish Friday, Freedom Fridays and Crazy Mom Quilts.
WOW!!! I LOVE LOVE this quilt. You guys did a great job. My sister and I are quilting partners too. I do her quilting, she does my binding handwork.
Don’t you hate it when you see a beautiful quilt (like yours), and then the blogger tells the book….and I say to myself – “I have that book”….”I don’t remember that pattern”. Beautiful color choices by your daughter.
The quilt is beautiful!!! It’s so nice that you and Kelli both have the love of quilting.
If I had seen the picture in the book I would have skipped right by it. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Kelli’s fabric choice’s and your quilting in wonderful.
I love the quilt. Where’s Ruby?
Gorgeous quilt! I love the scrappy-ness, and the way the colors work together. Awesome quilting. Lucky Grandma!
Colors make such a difference! Had I just seen the picture in the book I don’t think I would have wanted to make it but Kelli’s colors are wonderful! Now I have to go out and get that book. Both of you did a beautiful job. (but where’s your “quilt model” Ruby?)

Ginger Belle is one of my absolute favorite patterns. Y’all’s is just gorgeous – scrappy gets me vote any day, and yes, lucky grandma!

Liked it so much I bought the book! Thanks for sharing it!
I love your color choices. I just bought the book and I looked right past the quilt! Beautiful job!
Both quilts “Easy Streets” and “Ginger Bell” are totally awesome. I wish I Had a very rich husband. then I’ll retire and spend all my days in the magic world of colours and cloth.. Any chance of a digital patter for the above mentioned quilts? Pretoria is a long way from the States Regards
