I have finally finished this "PINK" quilt. I used the pattern called Jelly Jive from Pieced Tree Patterns and put this together at a retreat in May 2012. I do not remember the name of the fabric in the jelly roll. I did this before I started to blog about my quilting, so did not keep all that sort of information.
When I finished the top, I did not like it. From across the room, like this picture,
I kind of like it. Up close and personal, I don't like it. My friend, Kathy, says it's because it's not "me". Not my usual pick of colors. She may be right! I decided that I needed to "finish" it and get it out of my stack of UFOs. I ordered a wide backing online. Unable to find a pink one I liked, I chose a light green.
And I made a math error when deciding how much of the backing to order. I was short a little bit.
In addition, I finished this single pillowcase to go with the Space Ship quilt for my great grandson..... you can see the quilt here. I found a piece of coordinating fabric on line and ordered 1 yard.
It doesn't follow the pattern exactly, but I just inserted a piece of leftover red fabric, called Maze by Robert Kauffman that was included with the kit for the panel quilt. It turned out pretty cute, I think.
That's all for my Friday Finishes. I'll link up with
