Finish It Up Friday ~ Jelly Roll Quilt

Here’s my first finish quilted on Friday. I’m surprised how different it feels than my Avante. We are still getting to know each other!

You can read my tip for piecing jelly roll quilts here. It’s a game changer for me.

The backing looks gray here, but it is actually more of a taupe color.

My machine binding is improving.

I used a poly batt on this one. I have part of a roll I’m trying to use up.

Clearly, this isn’t an heirloom quilt, but it was very fast and fun!

Have a great day!

    Fast and fun is always good in my book 🙂 Congrats on your finish, it is beautiful!

  3. It looks great. Your quilting is great. I’m sure you and Friday will get comfortable soon enough.

  4. What a cozy, comfy quilt! I really like that half-moon-ish quilting motif. And I’d say you’ve nailed the machine binding 🙂

    Wonderful autumnal colors – sometimes quick and simple is truly delightful.
    I just can’t get the hang of machine binding, I continue to do it the hand sewn binding method.

    I’d say your machine binding is PERFECT! Not every quilt can be an “heirloom” quilt but this one is gorgeous in its own way…and like you said, “fun”.

    Hi Katy,
    Your machine binding is improving??? It looks GREAT to me – how would you want it any better? The stitches are even and straight . . . what more is there? I’m glad you figured out a way to be using your new machine – does it have a name? – in spite of all the shipping snafus. Happy Friday! ~smile~ Roseanne
