I am really on a quilting roll the last couple of months!! Do you ever get in a crafty groove and stick with one style or crafty thing for a while? I do! It’s so fun. Not that I’m only going to be quilty, but I am sure loving putting these together right now!
A few months ago I shared a quilt I was starting after going through Amy Smart’s Craftsy class, Pre-cut Shortcuts. (affiliate link) I’m so excited to show off the finished quilt! It’s the first quilt that I have had quilted by a long-arm quilter and I don’t think I’ll ever go back. It is pretty delicious, just dropping off a quilt top and back and picking up a quilt!
Amy’s class is awesome – it walks you through making really quick quilts, using precuts. This quilt pattern uses layer cakes (10″ squares) and jelly rolls (2 1/2″ x 44″ strips) that are already cut so it saves you tons of time. I used Regent Street Lawn by Moda for the florals and Kona white for the contrasting sections. I haven’t made a lawn quilt before and I loooooove it. It is so soft!
The quilting was done by Julie from Julie’s Longarm Quilting and she did a fabulous job! It’s quilting with a flower and leaf pattern that goes great with the prints.
My corners are not perfect, but it’s hard to tell with the bright florals. I think you’d really have to spend time looking for it to see them. And if you’re doing that, then you’re cuddling up under it and you won’t mind how wonky the corners are, cause it will be so cozy. That’s my theory anyway. :)
I can’t wait to make another quilt from Amy’s class – I think next on my list will be the gumball quilt! It is so cute.
You can see a little sneak peek of my gallery wall in these photos too! I have more tweaking to do but I really like how it’s coming together! I’ll show off the finished wall soon – and I have more quilts coming your way over the next few weeks too! Up next is my vintage sheet quilt – I can’t wait for you to see it!
