It is made from a jelly roll of Into the Woods by Leila Boutique for Moda and a jelly roll of Kona Snow, loosely based on a video tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company (called Summer in the Park) and a pattern from England Street Quilts. I say "loosely based" because after the initial jelly roll strip sewing and cutting, I put the rows of smaller blocks together completely differently than the patterns called for! Rather than unpick and re-sew, I decided to leave them as is, and go with the quilt this way. And I have ended up being very happy with it!
I love the color palette of this fabric line and quilt - it has always reminded me of mint chocolate chip ice cream! (With a little strawberry thrown in!)
Awhile ago, I used a few orphan blocks leftover from the construction of this quilt to make a pillow that goes with it. It's fun to finally see them together!
I quilted this one myself on my Janome with edge to edge organic, wavy lines. I love the result of the quilting, but have to admit that one of the reasons it took me so long to finish was because the quilting process went very slowly for me! I started and stopped many times because I got bored and needed to work on something else! So happy to have it finished now!
I often forget to put a label on my quilts, but not this one! Another leftover part of a block made a great label.
And, finally, a shot of the binding. I ordered some yardage of the mint dots from Into the Woods for the backing and binding, but also added in the last few jelly roll strips in green and pink to make a scrappy binding! My favorite!
Yay for a Friday finish! Linking up with Finish it Up Friday and Oh Scrap on Sunday!
