24 hours from start to finish. Including sleep, making dinner, and taking some breaks to watch TV. That will tell you how fast this one goes together!

This one is for me! I used the "garden trellice" pattern out of the Jellyroll book that I have. I used fat quarters instead of a jelly roll simply because I didn't have one. This pattern goes together so quickly!

It's also a scrap buster as I used pieces from my stash for the borders and backing. I realized that I didn't have any batting, so I used some old curtains I made a long time ago that were sun faded and depressing...and I knew I'd never use them again...so they went on the inside of the quilt!

The finished size is 57''X64. Perfect to throw over me while laying on the couch. The fall is here and it's cold, so this was just in time.

What do you think?

My quilt inspector, Milo. She seems to think this one is for her. As soon as I spread it on the bed, she jumped up and has refused to move ever since...

Your quilt inspector has impeccable taste. Great job!!

Excellent work! I made a quilt for my youngest daughter using that same pattern from that book. You did a great job on it, and I really like the tied quilting.

That's gorgeous... and so quick!!

That is beautiful and goes together so quick. I'm afraid you have lost it to the quilt inspector though.

How beautiful, can't believe how quick you did it! Maybe Milo will let YOU lie under it if she can lay on top of it! :wink: :lol:

I like the colors. It looks very Fall-ish. Are you sure you're going to be able to get it away from Milo?

Perfect!! I think Milo thinks so too! She's cute!

MoMoSews 10-06-2009 05:43 AM

Very nice quickie quilt. Lots of great colors. Your inspector seems to be giving you the big OK. Are you going to share?

really nice! May have to do that one!

It came out just great! I made that quilt as a wedding gift, and it was a big hit. I think Milo has great taste and is an exceedingly intelligent dog who know what she likes~

I love your quilt! Would you mind sharing which book you used? I would love to make one.
