Kelli and I have been secretly working on a quilt for my niece, Jody. You may remember that I told you earlier that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Jody had a lumpectomy only to find out that she needs a double mastectomy. We know she’ll have lots of couch time ahead of her so Kelli and I wanted to make something for her.
I had everything I needed here to make this quilt and it was a quick but cute so we went with it. This is actually a Moda Bake Shop Project from some time ago called Sweet Menagerie. You can find the free pattern here.
The quilt top is pretty economical to make as it uses a print jelly roll, a solid jelly roll and a 1/2 yard of fabric. It’s definitely a pattern that we will keep as a “go to” for an “in a hurry” quilt.
I quilted with white thread on the top. It’s a floral stipple pattern from the Pajama Quilter.
The backing is pink. We liked pink as it’s the color that symbols cancer fighters. We wanted to spruce up the plain backing though so I used a pastel variegated thread. I just love it. It really gives character to a plain quilt backing.
If you’re inclined, you can catch Jody’s blog here at Living the Miracle.
Oh and before you go, here’s a link to our Charity Quilt blog post for Advil’s Relief in Action project.
