Reindeer Quilt - A JOL Jelly Roll Log Cabin Quilt

JOL jelly roll log cabin quilt
First, let me say that the fabric line JOL by Northern Quilts for Moda Fabrics was an absolute joy to make with. The red is the perfect winter red and the grays play so beautifully with the red. Such cute prints with reindeer, hearts, and snowflakes.

After settling on a log cabin block, it took some tricky math to figure out how many blocks could be obtained from a jelly roll. Next step, layout. So many layout options!

Although this quilt took longer than first anticipated to get finished, in the end we are all quite satisfied with how it turned out.  (Stared February 2017 - I tend to be a seasonal quilter and didn't get it finished before spring arrived and the desire to work on it passed.)

We made the checkered border from some leftover jelly roll strips and added them so that the quilt would not be square. (I don't really care for square throw quilts.)  A quality flannel sheet makes the perfect backing. So soft! (and so much more affordable from the winter clearance shelf : )

You know I like a good quilt roll pic : )

I tried to get it finished by February 2018, but that didn't happen either. No matter. It is finished now and being used and enjoyed by all.

Avalon leftovers - a pretty little runner

What do you do with leftover charm squares that are too pretty to toss? Slice them in half and make a pretty little runner featuring my favorite Fig Tree blue from the fabric line Avalon for Moda Fabrics.

This was a quick, super fun project to finish - finished in a short afternoon.

Super fun wavy quilting.

Crisp, clean and pretty. Really like the binding and border fabric matching.

Love me a little quilt roll : )

Love, love, love how this skinny little runner turned out!

Joyful day, everyone!
