A peek at the second quilt…

I was so happy to have finished my first quilt that I quickly got to work on a second (keep going when you’re on a roll, right?!)

For this simple one I used some precut Katie Jump Rope 5″ squares. I only had about enough for half this quilt, so I cut the remaining from other assorted scraps and fat quarters I had in my stash. These typically aren’t my colors, but I do like how they all look together.

I was a bit limited for the back, since I only had smaller pieces remaining, but I managed to piece it all together.

I quilted diagonally through the squares to form a diamond pattern. I think I would have preferred free motion meandering, but this will have to do for now. To finish,  I just need to pick a binding. That might be easier said than done, as my choices are limited if I want to stick with fabrics from this line…

Hopefully I’ll be able to show the finished quilt early next week!

    Love it!! Congrats on quilting quilt #2! And you know, I hear you on the colors, but I actually find myself using Katie Jump Rope ALL the time. There are so few fabric lines that work for boy/man quilts and tons of it does…

    And if you find you don’t have enough for the binding, I think a solid binding could be great. Would create a nice frame for it… Just a thought!

    Hey Addie, nice job on quilt #2! It looks so fun, a more traditional old look with the benefit of new fabrics (not your old clothes) – love the back too!
