I'm a little late posting... like months late. This has been hanging in our store on display for quite some time. It's all thanks to UFO Fridays! This one was the second quilt I finished up on our UFO Fridays.
The pattern is called Jellybean by Thimble Blossoms.
It's such an easy and fun pattern to make, and did I mention really quick? It's a triple win! This is actually the second Jellybean I have made, the first was using Kate Spain's Honey Honey line (still one of my favorite soft color lines).
I thought this one was just perfect for summer, patriotic but not too obvious patriotic. I selected The Boat House fabric by Sweetwater (those ladies really know how to make some cute fabrics!)
Fabric: The Boat House by Sweetwater
Pattern: Jellybean by Thimble Blossoms
Size: Approximately 60" x 68" (I made it a little smaller than what the pattern calls for)
Quilting Design: Anchors Away
I love Fridays, but not just for the typical reason of the weekend… I love them because I have dedicated at least 15 minutes (and sometimes more) every Friday to work on a UFO (unfinished object). I'm proud to say dedicating this time has allowed me to check one of my UFO's off the list!
Quilting is up next, I think I have decided to go with anchors because how cute would anchors look on this quilt?!
To see previous postings about this quilt:
Check in next Friday to see our next UFO we're working on!
It's Friday, so you know what that means… UFO Friday.
So here I am, on week three of UFO Friday, and each Friday I have gotten a little closer to finishing this one up!
I'm so close I can see the finish line! I have half the rows completed and sewn together, one row with the corner stones completed and all the strips cut into blocks.
This pattern goes pretty quick, so I expect (assuming I can squeeze in a more than 15 minutes on next Friday) I will have a finished quilt top! Don't forget, you can join in on the fun! Post your photos on Instagram or on our Facebook page, use hashtag #UFOFridays
If you joined me last Friday on the blog, then you know that I have been working on my UFO's. My current project is Jellybean made with The Boat House fabrics. I have made great progress, three rows out of seven completed, and all the blocks are ready for their cornerstones!
I feel like setting aside 15 minutes has really helped me focus on getting this UFO completed, or at least I'm off to a good start! It really is such cute fabric!
So today is the day, I'm putting my foot down. I have so many UFO's (unfinished objects) that need some love and attention. I am dedicating 15 minutes every Friday (and a little more if I can squeeze it in) to finish up some projects!
Everyone, meet Jellybean. Jellybean is a lovely assortment from The Boat House fabrics that is beckoning me to wrap it up. This is a great quilt for beginners (and for people that want a really quick project!).
The fabrics are simply gorgeous, I love how clean and simple the prints are. The red, white and blue colors make a spectacular summer quilt (or fall in my case because it's taken me so long to finish up!)
So who's with me?! Are you going to join me in dedicating 15 minutes every Friday to complete some UFO's? I will update every Friday with my progress, and if I happen to finish I'll share my next UFO. It's all about staying on track!
