I made a cushion, a doll quilt, and throw quilt for my cousin's new room and her 10th birthday. This is the second Strip and Flip quilt I've made with jelly roll strips. I really like it with 25 strips but I used a few more on this as a throw for her bed. The tutorial is here at Cluck Cluck Sew. The fabric is Posy by Aneela Hoey. Instead of 2" strip and 1.5" sashing I used the 2.5" strips.
I pulled one of each strip from the Jelly roll and put together for a rainbow effect. My first go gave me this but that orange strip in the middle jarred for me and I ripped it out and re-arranged it.
I used Ikea's musical scale fabric as backing. I've had it in my stash since last Christmas. I really wish Ikea would bring this out again. It's my favourite backing fabric I've used, ever.
With the extra strips I made a doll quilt and a cushion blogged here. So today I quilted them up and
finished them off as a set.
I tried my hand at free motion quilting stippling style. I found it hard to move the quilt through the machine and then realised I had left the feed dogs up. Oops!
Then I played it safe with straight line quilting for the cushion. I think I'm going to make a few smaller projects and practice this Free Motion thing. It definitely takes practice.
And this is all I had left over. 40 of those 2.5" strips sure go a long way. I love the set all bundled up together. Can't wait to give it to her!
