                Quilt With a View


Since this is Wednesday, you are at Cheryl's Teapots 2 Quilting! 

First, I have to apologize about the pictures.  Picasa is being difficult, and not syncing my pictures.  I've tried over and over (and over).  I'm having to cut and paste these pictures directly from my computer, and I can't edit them.  

I started my project later than everyone else, since I was out of town.  I couldn't even download the ebook on to my laptop, since it is ancient, and doesn't like downloads (yes, it needs to be updated, but, last time I tried that, I lost access to my emails for over a week, while on a trip).  I'm tech UN-savvy.

I finally downloaded the ebook on Jan 21st, and decided on a project.  I don't usually use precuts, but, I did have a few that I've collected.
my few precuts
 
 I've only made something with precuts 2 other times.  A quilt for my niece, using charm squares (sorry, no picture) and a table runner.

Well, I chose one of my jelly rolls, and, a local quilt store (Sewing, Etc) cut me a black jelly roll. (Thanks Kelly)!

Spritely is the pattern I chose to make (it was a hard decision, since there are so many great patterns in the book).
pattern I chose
This is a quick quilt to stitch together.  I'll happily make this quilt again.

up close of my fabrics
This quilt finishes at 60" x 70", and uses 30 blocks.  

If you only used 12 of the blocks (3 across x 4 down) it would make a great baby quilt (finishing at 36" x 48").  I'm thinking of using this pattern for baby quilts soon.

  19. Great quilt - I love it!
    I like charm squares

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love all types of precuts & use them all the time. They are great for runners to queen size quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like FQs because I prefer to prewash my fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like FQs best but the cost of the big bundles can be high, so I most often buy layer cakes. The 10" squares are big enough that I can do lots of different things with them.

    If I had to choose then the jelly roll is my favourite precut. Would love to have the book in my library

    ReplyDelete
  31. I really like the black background on your quilt. It makes the bright colours sparkle. My favourite precut is the layer cake as it is quick and easy to make into charm packs and mini charms. Depending on the length of strips needed it can also be used in a jelly roll pattern.

  53. great quilt and it was a fun book to look at and make something with

    ReplyDelete
  54. Additionally, if I am tempted to buy a precut, it will be a Jelly Roll. I need to find a Jelly Roll with 40 different greens so I can make the scrappy Irish Chain in Eleanor Burns' book: https://www.quiltinaday.com/shoponline/books_display.asp?i=1914 for my daughter. I have tried starting a shoe box of just green strips but just don't use enough to collect 40 at a very fast pace.

  65. My go-to pre-cuts are 2 1/2" strips, which of late, i have made into small folios that I've sold to raise money for our Relay for Life team.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Your Spritely quilt turned out great and I love that you set it on black. It makes the colors pop so well. I have some precut jelly rolls and a few charm packs left in the stash that have not been used yet. I like them for a quick baby quilt or gift when I don't know the recipients favorite colors. Lately I've been cutting my own to add to what I have. I already follow you directly on email (so I don't miss a single thing), if I can help it.! lol Thanks for the chance to win.
