‘coming home’.. another birthday quilt, using Juliana Horner and Denyse Schmidt fabrics from various collections. the pattern is on page 12 of Precut Quilts.. although as you can see, i won’t be using precuts..
yeah!..i finished the ‘coming home’ quilt last night! another completed birthday quilt, and just in time, since she’ll be in town this weekend!
i made a lap size quilt, using 16-10″x10″ squares vs 30, and i omitted the 1″ sashing around the edge of the quilt because i couldn’t find a fabric that i liked.. i think it came out adorable..
once again sunny california is not sunny, in fact it’s gray and gloomy, which i’ve decided is a given when it’s time for me to take photos of a quilt, i’m quite sure the sun will come out after i’ve already posted these photos..
- measures: 51″ x 51″
- fabric: juliana horner, denyse schmidt and kona solid in ivory
- fabric back & binding: juliana horner trails
- batting: warm and natural

‘man’ quilts.. am i the only one who has a hard time picking fabrics and patterns for a masculine quilt…? i need to whip together a quilt for my son-in-laws birthday this week. he likes old worn in t-shirts, pandas and the color black and grey.. honestly, that doesn’t give me much to work with..
i narrowed down my patterns to two quilts from issue 9 of Quilt It Today , and ended up choosing “Game Night”, a fun quilt with big bold arrows, and chose six prints from Juliana Horner’s Modbox Collection..
watch this video to discover Juliana’s inspiration for her most recent collection, p.s. she’s absolutely adorable, and has her mother’s beauty..
well, who said, you can’t start a quilt at 10pm… haha
progress report. 3-25-14
i’m loving these prints..
note to self, don’t start cutting at 10pm, when i’m tired, i wasn’t paying attention, my ruler slid and i cut a whole strip wrong.. and of course i had the minimum amount of fabric, so i’ll be making a trip back to the fabric store..
