    The Summer in the Park, using jelly rolls tutorial

    Hi! Does anyone know where we can see the finished quilt that is mentioned in the video? I was wondering how they finished the border of the quilt. I'm thinking about using this technique to make a baby quilt. Its mentioned that part of the strip was used for the border to make a more "scrappy-look.
    I sure appreciate the video because I've taught myself to quilt. The videos have help me see other ideas and learn new techniques. Chris

    I don't think they have one but you can see the finished quilt hanging in the background on one of the other videos

        Hi! Dragonfly, Thanks so much. Now I know how many blocks I'll need and how the border was done. Really appreciate it, Chris

            The tutorial only shows you the block construction, not the finished quilt and doesn't tell you a block layout or finish size, which is what Chris was after. Chris hasn't been the first to ask this question, at the end of the tute Natalie says something about getting back with the finished quilt but sadly it was missed in their busy lives. I understand from an earlier post that they no longer have the quilt so the photo in Natalie's album and in the background of other tutes is all we have.

              Hi! And my quilt won't look like the tut quilt, I've used three print fabrics and white. I'm working on a charity quilt for a pregnancy center and thought this would be perfect way to learn a new block and use some of the fabrics I already had. I have feeling I may have several layout variations because of using the same prints.
              This was an easy quilt to make and the blocks have turned out fairly large, maybe close to 15" after they're sewn together. If the different layouts turn out interesting, I'll post some pictures.
              I was going to buy a large ruler like Natalie used in the tut but decided that I wouldn't get alot of use of it but found my fuzzy cut 8" ruler worked fine. It has the diagonal line across it that I could line up with the seams to make the 45dg cuts. Take care, Chris

                Hi! I finally finished the quilt and its ready to be turned in to the guild. They will be giving the quilts to the pregnancy center in Apr. Have really enjoyed working on this quilt but I did have to make it smaller than the tutorial because the guild's size requirement 36x40. My quilt is close 36x38!
                Thank you so much for providing the tutorials. I've learned so much from them. Chris

                  Hi! Everyone, I tried posting a picture here but for some reason it never was posted. If you'll check my photo album( the link below in my signature line) and click on Charity Sewing folder. There's a picture of the finished quilt.
                  I had to make it smaller than what the tutorial mentions because the quilt guild wanted to give the Pregnancy Center quilts that measures 36x40. This quilt 38"x38".
                  I think next time I might make the strips not as wide, I cut these the same as jelly rolls. For crib quilts, think narrower strips would be better and be able to use blocks like they should be. Otherwise, the quilt was alot of fun to work on and there's several different ways the blocks could have gone together. Hope everyone has had a great weekend, Chris

                    Chris, loved viewing your webshots albums. Thanks for sharing. What kind of embroidery machine do you have - I have a Husqvarna Designer Diamond and a Bernina 650 Deco.

                      That is so pretty.
                      I agee about the size, though. i tried one using 2 1/2" scraps just to see how it was done. My blocks ended up huge. I only made 4 blocks but it still made a good sized baby quilt.

                        Hi! Thank you both, I had alot of fun working on this quilt. And its fun to learn a quilt block and be able to use it for a baby quilt.
                        Sandy, I have a Brother Pacesetter 6500, it's an older machine but has done everything I asked it to do. Thanks so much for looking at the other pictures, I've enjoyed working on each project! Hope you both have a great weekend. Chris

                          That turned out pretty Chris.
                          I also checked out your album - love, love that birdhouse table runner. I've only done less than a handful of applique projects and would like to put that on my Bucket List.
                          Your kitties are so cute and that puppy - to die for! Is he still that little? Can I borrow him for a day?

                          Hugs,

                            Hi! Trish, I think my husband would have something to say about "loaning" Roxie! She is getting bigger but still just about 2-1/2 lbs and not supposed to get over 5lbs, she weighed 1lb 4ou in the pictures. She was my Christmas present this year. She is a sweetheart and sure has bought some life back to this house, the cats and the other dog are founding out what its like to be on the other end of teasing finally. The only time the house is quiet is when Roxie has teased enough and taking a nap.
                            Thank you on the comments about the birdhouse runner. The birdhouse runner was part of a challenge two years ago on CyberQuilters Yahoo group and was alot of fun to work. I love runners baby quilts and wallhangings because I can handle small quilts in my sewing area . I'm not much on applique either but its fun to try something different. Take care, Chris

                              Chris, your work is beautiful, the Summer in the Park lap quilt is sure to comfort someone in need, and I adore the birdhouse runner. Thanks so much for sharing!
