birthday quilt

My friend, Krista recently had two quilts published in Quilting Arts special publication 101 Patchwork Projects & Quilts.  I knew immediately I would need to make my husband a version of "Rolling On Through".  Finally got around to doing just that this weekend for Kent's birthday. 

My daughter helped with all the fabric selections...and that was harder than you might think.  She wanted to add all the little novelty fabrics she could find...but I love Krista's use of mostly solids...Colette and I found a happy balance that pleased us both.

I had a lot of fun quilting this little guy.  Although, I think I need to head back to the quilt shop because the darning foot I bought in August doesn't fit my machine....grrrrrr.  I found that out last night at 1015pm!!

I think this little quilt will head to work tomorrow with Kent and hang in his work space.


  1. VERY cute Jenny -- I'll bet your hubby loved it!

  2. Super nice quilt to bring to the office!

  4. So cute! My husband would like something like this :)

  5. I think it's so nice that your daughter helped you pick the fabrics! Great job! :)

  6. He'll treasure it especially because both you girls had a hand in it!
