#29 is Finished

This is one of the quilts I am doing for my Elm Street Quilts – OMG.  I set my goal at doing 2 of these quilts, one in the brown/tans and one in the black/greys.

The fabric is Behind the Scenes by Jen Kingwell Designs,  I must have really liked this fabric, since I bought both a layer cake and a jolly bar.

So to make the most out of my purchases, I cut the layer cake in half and added it to the jolly bar. I then had 126 blocks of 5 x 10.  Then I separated them into the brown/tans and the black/greys.

To be able to finish this quilt I needed to get some binding material.  That meant a trip to Shipshewanna since Yoder Department Store was the closest place that had this line of Moda.

Off we went, Hubby even drove me down, about 90 minutes from home.  I did entice him with a donut and a meal.

I got my binding at Yoder’s and made a few other stops for things backing for a few upcoming quilts, then we headed home.

First up is the brown/tan quilt. This is the one that I finished yesterday.

These pictures really don’t do the fabric justice.  It is quite lovely.  Not sure how to show the true colors in these pictures.  We even had a bit of sun, which doesn’t seem to help the colors at all.

I had a few blocks left, so I added them to the back with some white strips and it turned out better than I had expected.

Anyone has has looked through any of my quilts will notice, I am a straight line quilter.  I think I am getting pretty good with them.  I did 5 lines of quilting on each side of the seam and am pleased with the outcome.

This year I am going to try FMQ, just not yet.

Thanks for stopping by.

    I really like this neutral quilt. Simple and elegant! Straight line quilting is my favorite method too! Behind the Scenes looks like a great stack to have on hand…always!

    You should TOTALLY try FMQing!! I find it SEW much faster than straight line quilting. Besides that, it's FUN!!

    Lovely quilt! I've made a neutral colored quilt before so I know how hard they are to photograph. Love that quilting! So cool.
