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.
