Jelly Roll Sampler Quilted and Bound

31 comments
I've had my Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt back from being machine quilted for a couple weeks now but I've been consumed with market projects. I am still working my next deadline before market but I took an afternoon to get my Jelly Roll quilt bound. I needed a break.
I had the sampler quilted with strawberries since that was the theme of the quilt. It is hard to tell from the photographs but I really like it.
You might be able to pick out some blossoms and leaves from this photo.
I used a vintage sheet for the back. Maybe you can see a strawberry here or there in this shot.
I bound the quilt in a scalloped fabric that makes it look like the edge of the border goes into the binding. I really love that look.
I have the fabric by Michelle Blackhurst in pink and green and it is especially great for bindings, but tricky to cut.
Allison came to see us Sunday. She is trying on the new hat Shelbie made her for fall. Allison LOVES cookies. Yes, it is a bit messy but impossible to take away from her, and she loves them. So it is cute to watch her eat a treat now and then.

That binding is the cutest thing ever! I've seen scallops on borders, but never on a binding.

That binding is super rad.

(And I am impressed that you made it work because I know that if I tried something like that it would be all wavy style and misaligned.)

Allison is growing up so fast - she's eating cookies already!!! Still as cute as ever!

Gosh that blue eyed girl is so adorable. You must love her to pieces! I really like this quilt Nanette, and SO appreciate the scallop binding tip. Just bought some of the fabric at The Fabric Shack. Thanks!

Looks like the filling in Allison's cookie matches her hat! And how very clever of you to use that fabric for your binding. It is great! Your jelly roll quilt turned out SO pretty!

Allison looks so cute in her orange knit cap. She's growing up so fast.
Isn't Grandma's house always a place for cookies and other goodies :)

I love those scallops and aren't strawberries the best! I don't see strawberry fabric often but get oodles of it when I do! But seriously Allison is adorable!!
Cheers,

Well, first I have to say Allison is adorable! Look at those chubby cheeks! I love chubby cheeks!

Love your Jelly Roll Sampler quilt, well, I just love everything you do!
You make the most gorgeous quilts.

Can you tell me ...you mentioned that you had just gotten it back from being machine quilted. I'm looking for someone local who does machine quilting. If you don't mind, if you have a name and location you could share..
email me via my blog.

Thanks - Alice

I love the quilt and the details like the binding make it extra wonderful. I adore the strawberry fabric. Alison is growing really fast.
