It started out just playing with leftover Kona cottons on a rainy day, at the cottage.
And because my space is in the loft I can just leave it out and add to it when I feel the need to play with fabric.
Sometimes guests stay in the upstairs bedrooms and I find willing quilt testers. All quilts must be tested before gifting. Usually I do it myself, but I had a helper for this one. Who knows whether a baby quilt will work better than a toddler??
We’ve got a heavy reader here.
Tried my hand again at stippling free motion quilting. Not my favorite way to finish a quilt but I feel the need to conquer this method. It is much more difficult than it appears. Just getting the machine set up, tensions properly set… And it really takes a lot of practice!
Love the backing I found for, my great nephew, Ben’s quilt. It is a Kaffe Fassett, I believe. It sure looks like his anyway! I knew I should have photographed the selvedge…

Super fun quilt! Rainy days are the best! I’m hoping for one today, so I can spend time there without feeling any guilt. 🙂
a lovely fun quilt both front and back. Yep looks like a KF to me, or maybe a Philip Jacob? Either way, it’s gorgeous ^^

Oh, that’s Ben’s quilt? It is the best, love all the colors and just like the man he will become with all those boxes in his brain. Great choice!!
Ha Ha! I could have went with a more clever name if I had thought of it that way!
Hope he received it!
Happy and colourful quilt ! I like very much the long stripes areas among squares.
I love bright solids, and this turned out great. I especially like the mix of sizes and of stripes and squares.
So bright and fun, it doesn’t look like it will work — but it does! And the backing is just perfect contrasting the circles with the squares.
Ken Jennings the second! exciting quilt!
