Finish It Up Friday ~ Mirage

It has been rainy and dark all week here so I haven’t been able to get great photos of this finish.

I used one Mirage jellyroll and some white strips to make this 60 by 80 inch quilt.

This particular jelly roll had several strips of each print. That is why I used the white strips as I did, to prevent like prints from touching.

It was quick and easy, if a bit boring, to make.

I have more jelly rolls with multiple strips of the same fabric. It makes designing an interesting quilt more of a challenge. Time to think about the next one.

Have a great day!

    I really like how you grouped the like sets together as large blocks. It might be an “easy” quilt but it sure is a beautiful one! Someone is going to treasure it. The curvy lines of the quilting are perfect with the piecing.

    I must admit, Katy, it turned out to be more beautiful than I imagined. I really like it.

    Clever solution! I like the way it allowed for like fabrics to be grouped. Moves the eye along! I tried to imagine what it would look like with grey or navy, and I can’t! I think white was the best choice.

    At first glance it looks totally scrappy, but looking closely, you see a pattern of four like blocks set in an orderly way. It is bright and someone is going to love. I am still contemplating a jelly roll quilt. You have inspired me. Dotti

    Great finish! It’s a very striking quilt, especially since you place the same sets together. The sashing really makes it shine.
