2015 Finish-Along ~ Second Finish for the 2nd Quarter

I'm happy to say that the first of my daughters' quilts is finished!  This one is for my youngest, Kelli ~ together we decided on the pattern called Puddle Jumping and she picked yellow and grey for the colors.  We found Modern Folkloric and thought it would be perfect for this design ~ great choice I think!

I have to say, this is the biggest quilt I've tackled so far ~ 75" x 75".  Kind of scary to quilt on my little Babylock Grace, but I did it!  With my trusty walking foot doing all the double straight-line stitching ~ and an extra table to hold up the quilt.

I'm not sure if you can see the backing, but it's covered in little chalk drawings of mason jars.  Did I mention Kelli lives on a farm?  So she does a lot of canning and I thought the mason jar fabric was perfect!  

Here's a little closeup of the quilting ~ lots of straight lines around and through the blocks.

I'm so happy that Lori Holt came up with this gorgeous barn block ~ with a sunflower block that was similar to the big blocks on the front!

Binding in gold (I hate to say it but I forgot which fabric this is!).

The back, in all it's simple glory.  :)  Can't wait to see how Kelli likes it!
I'm happy to say this is Finish #2 for this Finish-Along quarter

Linking up with Sarah!


  1. You did a fabulous job. Great colors and cute pattern.

  2. Congratulations on the finish. It looks beautiful. I'm sure she'll treasure it.

  3. What a beautiful quilt. Great pattern and great choice of colours. Your quilting just finishes it off. I see you have the binding on the spool holder - where is your thread?

  4. It's a stunning quilt and I'm sure your daughter loves it!
