    STrips and 4 Patch quilt for my Bro

    I felt I had the perfect precuts for this project and went for it. I love the way it came out. I just got it back from the LQS for quilting and they did a great job. Now I need to attach the binding and ship it off for Christmas. It's going to be tight in getting there but - it will - eventually. Maybe a belated Christmas gift.

    This is the first time I've tried mitered border and they came out great. Love the wood grain border - it make it looks like it's a wood frame around the quilt.

    Check it out.

    That is a great quilt and a great choice of pattern and fabric for a more masculine look. Great job!

                This is beautiful and he will love this! What is the pattern? Is this a "Jenny" quilt (I hope!!)? Is this made with strips? I think you NAILED the mitered corner - it looks fantastic!

                  Yes, it is Jenny's. Check YouTube for Strips and 4 patch and you will find it. I used two jelly rolls - 1 with the color and the white jelly rolls had different designs in each strip. This one is about 80 x 92 for the two jelly rolls. You will have a few four patches left over.

                  Got the mitered corner information from youtube.com also. It worked great.

                  Thanks for the compliment

                              Thanks for posting this--your quilt looks great, your brother will love it. I had bought the required fabric for this quilt and it has been sitting on my sewing table waiting for me to remember what I bought the fabric for!!! Now I know and will be starting on it tomorrow.
