Fabric Tuesday with Botany

Over a year ago, I saw the Nellie’s Needle Ink Pot Quilt Pattern in Moda’s Lauren + Jessi Jung’s Botany Line.  I loved it so much that I bought both the patten and the Jelly Roll.  I was surprised how well the green and teals mixed together.  It was a fun line to use for this quick pattern and the results were stunning.  The pattern is basically a block with several layers, finished with a snowball effect.  With three fabrics in each block, having a jelly roll was perfect!  I was able to play with a lot of color variations.  I then added a pieced backing.  Since being inspired by Julie of Jaybird Quilts, I have been on a pieced backing kick.  Here is her blog posting on pieced backs on Robert Kaufman’s Blog – Swatch and Stitch.

I finished this quilt in August for a wedding gift.  I am finally playing blog catch up by linking up with Quilt Story’s Fabric Tuesday.

Oh!  And here is a picture of my little pumpkin on his first Halloween.
