Jelly Roll Waves Quilt Along | Finished Quilts!

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

Thank you to all who have quilted along in the Jelly Roll Waves Quilt Along!  Today the linkup for finished quilts opens.  It's time to see your beautiful quilts all finished up!

I finished two Jelly Roll Waves quilts for the quilt along.  First up is a Large Lap in mostly Scrumptious prints by Bonnie and Camille.

The feminine quilting really brings the quilt top to life.

Last year I traded Andrea a large box of Bonnie and Camille fabric for custom quilting, and all of the fabric in this quilt, including the backing and binding, came from that box.  Sew fun!

This quilt was made using traditional piecing, sewing one piece at a time together, because I was using strips of fabric rather than yardage.  They weren't actually jelly roll strips; they were layer cakes that had been cut into strips already.  The pattern includes strip piecing as well as traditional piecing which speeds up the process.  Either way you piece, though, it still goes together very quickly.

I made the second Jelly Roll Waves quilt differently than any of the JRW quilts I've made before.  This time low volumes were placed as the waves rather than as the background, and the prints were placed as the background which created sparkling, multi-colored gems on the edges of the waves.  The result is a truly modern quilt for a subtle splash of color over the sofa.

All fabrics in the quilt top are from Alison Glass collections - Sun Print Light and various Sun Print collections.  This quilt was strip pieced from strips of fabric using a Fat Quarter bundle of AG Sun Print Lights.

Quilting is a modern design that looks like flames or wood bark, whichever you see it as.

Backing is a black and medium gray hatch print, and the matching binding brings a striking, bold frame to the quilt.

This quilt will be for sale in my quilt shop!

Oh, both of those are so pretty! I can see I'm going to have to start looking for Bonnie and Camille fabric, because I like those colors. The one with the dark background pieces is amazing. Your quilts are fabulous, and I'll be back to see what others add to the linky.
