Recently, someone my husband works with diagnosed with lung cancer. I don’t want to get into all the details but my husband’s boss thought the person would appreciate a quilt.
I had a batik jelly roll and my mom had a mostly solid color batik in her stash that we thought would look good with it so I set to work. I sewed the strips together and since I was working on some other things my mom cut the strips and assembled the quilt for me. A lot of credit goes to my mom for this quilt because she did the bulk of the work.
We decided to use the Jellybean quilt pattern from Camille Roskelly of Thimbleblossoms as jumping off point. I love a lot of her patterns and not just because her name is also Camille. I was able to get the sewn strip sets and backing fabric I had to my mom before a minor snow storm hit our area. She was all set for a couple of sew days while they had snow and ice in the Portland area. We had a little bit of snow in the Willamette Valley but it didn’t stick around for very long.
I was able to gift the quilt a couple weeks ago and the person loved it.
