And Another Herringbone

Ok, you are going to have to pretend the pictures in this post aren’t atrocious. Because seriously, they are beyond bad. I was finally going over to see my friend and her new baby, and the quilt was finally done so I could deliver it, and it was RAINING. And OVERCAST. And DARK. And I was grumpy.


And you get two herringbone quilts in a row! :)

I actually made this cute little baby quilt before the other super-sized herringbone; this one made me want to make the second one!


I had extra pieces from cutting too much, so I pieced another strip, and lined it up on the back so that the quilting would match both the front and the back seams.


Wow, you can’t even tell in this photo, but the main print in the backing is the blue and yellow star-looking print from Heather Bailey’s Nicey Jane line.

I really enjoyed making this little herringbone quilt. It came together very fast and easy, per Melanie’s tutorial (doesn’t she have awesome tutorials?), though I mostly used it as a guideline instead of a rule, since I am incapable of following any directions exactly…

Oh yeah, and I used this unfinished top for our monthly photo shoot 2 1/2 months ago (still at the old apartment!!):


I have miraculously kept up with Jocelyn’s monthly picture, even if I haven’t posted one on here in forever! I keep using friends in-progress quilt tops (since I don’t have enough for a new one every month myself), and then I have to wait until I get those quilts done and to said friends so they don’t see it beforehand! Tee hee.

The colors in this quilt are just awesome. And I am beyond impressed at the lining up the backing so the quilting is the same... skills.

Are you on Threadbias yet??? I sent you an invite.
