I recently posted a picture of a doll that I made that under the title "What I do when I am not quilting...humoring friends". Immediately after I got that doll finished, I started a quilt for ME. I have been quilting roughly 16 - 17 years now and have never made myself a quilt....until this weekend. Its done and its mine. Im keeping it. I promise. I am really happy with how it turned out. I was inspired by the jelly race quilts I have been seeing so I came up with a little something of my own. It was made with 1 1/2" finished strips and overall measures 55 x77....just big enough for me to curl up under while watching a movie. I had my two youngest sons layout the color placement. There are 4 strips each of the 10 colors, so they both got to do two sets, my only request was that they didn't follow the same pattern as the first set as I wanted it to be somewhat random. I machine quilted in just a few hours. My avitar is also used as my signature block on my quilts. On this quilt, I sewed my fatsew cat into the lower corner. I am still going to put a signature block on the back with the date and location of where it was made, just like I would with any other quilt I make. Thanks for looking and sharing your thoughts on my very first quilt. Now, Im off to watch a movie and test it out.
