Oh Deer! a jelly roll quilt

IMG_1980

Here’s a recent finish. I assembled this quilt top back in February (I wrote about it here). I had a jelly roll of Oh Deer fabric that had been sitting around for awhile, so I found a design I liked in Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam & Nicky Lintott called Blue Lagoon. It came together in no time.

I have been on an orange kick lately, so the backing is an easy pieced affair of a center 42-inchwide vertical panel of even more deer flanked by parallel 13-inchwide panels of an orange fleur de lis. Since she did such a wonderful job quilting the quilt for my daughter, I sent this one to Lynn Peterson, a talented long-arm quilter.

In the border, she did a double loop-de-loop, and the interior she filled with a tri-petal design that looks like a lotus blossom or an orange being peeled–I really like it.

Delighted with how it was coming along, I made a blue binding–and then dropped the ball. Distracted by birthday and graduation gift-making, I put it aside in my sewing room, close but unfinished. I more reliably hit the finish line when I have a recipient and a deadline–since I had neither for this quilt, it was easily left undone.

When I straightened my sewing room a couple weeks ago, I pulled this quilt and the binding out. In an embarrassingly short time, I had it completed. Procrastination always makes a job seem bigger than it ends up being in reality.

I still don’t have a recipient in mind, so it might just be added to the family blanket pile in the living room, which would make Grizzie very happy!

    Love the quilt – and the kitty!

  2. Love this version of that Blue Lagoon quilt. I did the blue version earlier this year for my son who lives in Charleston, SC, on a barrier island. He loved it. I have a lot of 2 1/2 inch squares cut up so may do another one of these quilts that is more scrappy. Or, try a low contrast with blue squares and a floral I bought for that purpose. Ah, so many quilting ideas to execute. Thanks for visiting my blog recently. I’m now going to go poke about your blog.

  3. beautiful quilt! It is the kind that makes you happy just looking at it.
