Trip for Two Comes Home

Remember earlier this week I told you we had a project in the newest edition of Quiltmaker magazine??  Well just after that blog post went up the UPS driver pulled into the drive way and delivered a box.  It was out “Trip for Two” quilts returning home from Quiltmaker.

I know this sounds crazy but for Kelli and I it often goes like this…we submit a quilt.  They except it and we scramble to get them together and sent out.  The quilt is only here for three weeks or so. Then they are gone for 6 months.

It’s almost an out of sight out of mind thing.  Honestly, we almost forget that we made them.  We’re always so happy to get them back and see them again.

These were so fun.  They were made with Moda’s Chantilly line.  Right now Moda has a new line, Petal Pushers-and they have Miss Kate, I think both of these lines would make awesome quilts like these.

If you missed my original post about the quilts, you’ll want to go back and read it.  It has a giveaway to go along with it.  You can find it here.

I did have a little a few jelly roll strips left over after I made the original two quilts.  I had the most fun it.  I ended up making this baby quilt.

I don’t have a pattern for it though.  I started out making scrappy trip blocks and then it morphed into this.  For the most part, it is scrappy trip blocks but then I had to add in a row or two or five that were pieced in single units….anyway, I love this little baby quilt too.  The off center design is fun-don’t you think?

In the end from four jelly rolls and no extra fabric I was able to make two throws finishing at 64″ square and this baby quilt.  In the end there was nothing left…all used up.

It’s good to have the quilts home….That marks another project completely done.

    I just recently bought a Miss Kate jelly roll for making a jelly roll race quilt at the Jan. meeting of our quilt club. I’ve also bought some of one of the red prints, the green flowered print and the white dot for borders. I think it will make a very pretty throw sized quilt. It may just live on the back of my couch in the summer. It’s hard to not tear right into it…..but no, I have to wait until Jan. :)
