A Finish For Friday

What a week!

We are experiencing a typical spring, here in Washington.  The weather can't decide if it wants to be nasty or nice.  One day we were out at the ball park sweating our buns off, and the next, freezing them off!  Then, last night, during my daughters practice, the sky's opened up on us, and we lost the battle.  But it was another good week despite it all.

I was able to wrap up this full sized quilt for my friend, just in time for her to give it to her son for his birthday.  I was inspired on this one, but the jelly roll races that I have seen from time to time while cruising the web.  If you have never tried one of these, they are super fun, and I would suggest giving it a go.  You can find instructions that I got inspired from here and here, as well as see a couple my daughter and I completed here.

Also accomplished this week, we caught two bee swarms, as well as harvested a couple quarts of honey from my original hive.  There is nothing more rewarding than a sweet treat of honey!

So without further a do, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. This quilt finished out at 81" x 96".

I will be linking up with:

Thanks for hosting link ups girls!

Hope you all have a great weekend,



  1. Your quilt is beautiful, I never made one of those but have seen them around. Love the photo shoot on the fence gate. :-)

  2. It's a very striking quilt, Corrie. Congratulations on a fantastic finish! I've never seen this style before, but I love the energy of the strong, straight lines and diagonals and I never know what to do with those lovely jelly rolls. Beautiful job!

  3. Oooh... I never thought of making the seams on a continuous strip quilt angled. I always make them straight. I see a new look in my future. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. I've never been partial to those jelly roll race quilts. But I like yours. I think because you used solids. It looks very modern and the diagonals created some nice movement. Its also very masculine which is harder to do. I like the black moving through the quilt. Hope your friend's son likes it. Congrats on the bees and honey.


I look forward to hearing from you, and try to get back to everyone. Please remember that if you are a "No Reply Blogger" I cannot respond to your comment. Thanks for stopping by.
