Baby Chain mail Jelly Roll Quilt is complete! (45)

I finally finished my baby chain mail quilt!  Yay!

I used some left over squares to make a fun back.

I used the pink and green stripe fabric to bind the quilt.

I used a butter-yellow colored thread to machine quilt my quilt in a free motion meandering pattern.  I’m glad I chose the yellow.  Light enough to blend with the white, but it doesn’t look stark against the color fabrics like white normally does.

I am very satisfied with how this quilt turned out, and I have decided to try my luck and sell it on etsy.

My daughters were big helpers and held the quilt for me while I took the first few pictures.  Then, after they left, my son felt it was his turn to help me.

It’s so great to have such willing helpers!

So, I figure this will be my last quilt of the year.  Here are all the other quilts I made in 2010.

And this one, too.

Have a Happy New Year!

Black and white window quilt – Current project

I’ll number this quilt when I am done with it, but I thought I would pause on listing the previous quilts to show the current project I have.

Black and white quilt

If you are wondering what happened to the color, just know that your computer screen is fine.  This is my twin size black and white quilt.  It is halfway through the quilting process.  I just need to get my machine back from the tune up guy 🙂

Black and white quilt

I chose a gray cotton thread to quilt it.  I thought white would look too bold on the black squares and take away from their subtle differences, and the black would look to heavy on the white sashing.  So, I am compromising with myself.  I was tempted to go bold and do it all in red.  Maybe next time!
