Quilt Number Three.

So this is the second stage in of a quilt for my bed. After I realised how straightforward Jelly Rolls are to use I bought a Moda one called Freebird. Some while ago I assembled all the strips and cut them into squares but I had only managed to sew two rows back together again and it has been languishing in a bag to be "got on with". Yesterday I cleared my decks, got rid of most of the children, and got sewing!

This was the two strips I had already re-assembled. It is a sort of picket rail design with alternating light and dark strips, the orange and the brown; not sure if I am completely happy with my choice of orange but hey, too late now!

And finally, after a break for lunch (and then a couple of hours socialising with the neighbours on the green,) I got to this stage, all the strips done and the first border sewn on. Now I need to buy more brown for the outer border and backing etc.. It seems a whole lot less orange now that it's complete!
