Jelly Roll Waves Lap Quilt in Blue and Aqua | FONF

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My finish is a Jelly Roll Waves lap quilt in aquas and blues!  With the new quilting machine, I've been pulling out UFOs that are near completion in order to have something to quilt.  This project was ready for quilting, so it jumped to the top of the pile.

Jelly Roll Waves is a pattern I released this winter, and this is the fourth quilt I've made using the pattern.  I have found it's really addictive and enjoyable to make.  The pattern uses jelly rolls for traditional piecing and fat quarters for strip piecing and includes six sizes from baby to king, including two lap sizes.  You can purchase this pattern from my pattern shop.

I made a pieced backing to use up every scrap of the Sapphire collection in my stash, along with a beautiful royal hatch fabric.

The quilting is a digital e2e (edge to edge) wave design done on Gratitude, the name I've given my Handi Quilter Fusion with ProStitcher.  Gratitude is a combination of grateful and attitude!  Have a grateful attitude!

Love this quilt! Blue is my favorite color and this really shows it off well.

Mari said...

I love this one! The white spaces make this look like clouds floating in a lovely blue sky. Nice work getting those UFOs finished up!

Vicki in MN said...

Gorgeous quilt Myra. It was a surprise to me to see my basket featured! So I see a bunch of your quilts for sale on pinterest-what's the secret of getting them to show up there. I pinned from my blog to one of my boards, but never see them elsewhere on pintrest.

my first thought was clouds in the sky...such a pretty quilt and a beautiful sapphire color!
Your new machine does a beautiful quilt job. Do you use a single or double layer of your 80/20?

Kim said...

LOVE the pattern and beautiful colors! Congrats on your finish.

Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts said...

That's a very cool pattern! I especially love those colors, and the white sections remind me of clouds in a blue sky.

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

Great blues. The blue and white combo is very striking. That's a great quilting motif.

I really like this one! I'm not usually a girl attracted to blues, but this is spectacular!
