Framed Rectangles

May’s UFO is done — early even if that makes up for me finishing April’s late. This is one of my quilts and there are instructions on the website. It’s quilted with a pantograph called Jilly by Keryn Emmerson.

I designed it to use my GO dies and it’s quick to cut even if you are using the rotary cutter. It uses bricks cut 3.5 x 6.5, 2.5 inch strips and 2 inch strips. I used a set of fat quarters and just added in some additional fabrics from my stash for variety.

I always think it’s interesting to look back to see when I started a quilt – this one was started in May 2010 and I finished the top that same month so it’s exactly 2 years old.

    I just have to tell you that I love your way with color. You have had several finishes lately that make me drool. Well, not drool, but close. Very hot here (East Tennessee)….in the 90’s for a couple of days. Too much too soon. Have a great, holiday.
