First finish of the year!
(My official goal is one per month, so far on track!)
Honky Tonk 2
42" x 66"
traditional fence rail block using a jelly roll
I just loved the other Honky Tonk quilt I did last spring/summer that I decided to do another (that, and someone saw it and loved it and bought it!). :) If you are counting, the body of the quilt is made with 30 strips from a jelly roll and I had enough brown guitars for a border along with a skinny floral border. I squeaked out the back and binding with just a few inches of binding to spare and used up the rest of the coordinating fabric I had. If you tally up my leftovers I maybe have a fat quarters worth of fabric left, but no big pieces; not even enough to make a little pouch! No close up, but I quilted it with a loopy meandering line and sewed the binding on by machine.
Here is the back, pieced strategically so I didn't have to buy any more fabric. It is now hanging out in a laundry basket to get washed and wrinkled!
And a goofy picture of Timmy for all of you grandma types. :)
And he insisted on a picture with Tigger. She is thrilled with the honor, obviously.
