    Showing off my latest quilt.

    I finished this top last year, and just finished the quilting this weekend. I used something like 24 different colors of thread, and maybe 15 different quilting designs. I thought the quilting should be as colorful and varied as the fabric!

    This was a jelly roll quilt, but rather than use the Jelly Roll prescribed, I bought two different sets of Connecting Threads strips. It made it a little more affordable, although I have a few repeats due to this.

    Thanks for the compliments. I love bright colors.

    Very colorful. Great use of left overs. Love the design and the colors used. Kind of timeless for any age.

    WoW! I love how bright and cheerful your quilt top and the quilting sets the whole thing off. I also love the block patterns. Just looking at it makes me smile from ear to ear, can you imagine how wonderful it will be to get wrapped up in this web of glee!! Thanks for sharing.

    I did three sections (each with a unique design- so no color has the same design, although the designs do repeat- I'm not Leah Day, so I don't have that many patterns I can do well!) with each color and then changed threads.

    Two variety packs from Connecting Threads meant I had lots of choices.

    I love it and the idea of switching the quilting up like that. Thanks for sharing.
