A (Belated) Friday Finish

I can't believe I never posted the February Jelly Roll Party quilt!

Or the March one, but that can wait. For now, here is "Twirl," pattern by Fig Tree & Co.

Wow, not the best photo!  Here is the one from the pattern cover at Fig Tree & Co. so you can see the whole quilt!

The fabric I used was also from Fig Tree, "Somerset." Here is a look at the fabrics in the collection:

The stems on the leaves are applique'd. I didn't realize that until I started sewing the quilt (four days before the sample was due!). So I used Wonder Under and raw edge applique'd them in place. While the quilt was hanging above the register counter at Ruth's Stitchery, it wasn't even possible to see my sloppy applique' job!

The fabric were so pretty, more than one "partier" used the same jelly roll for her quilt. I quilted it on my Viking Mega Quilter using my favorite "loops and swirls" pattern.
