Salt Air Quilt is Finished


The front is a Salt Air Jelly Roll sewed together like a "jelly roll race quilt". Pieces of Salt Air Red were used between the Salt Air Jelly Roll strips and for the quilt's inner border. The outer border is 2 colors of Salt Air Waves and the backing is pieced with 5 colors of Salt Air Waves. Some Salt Air charms were cut in half and sewed together to make a colorful 2 1/2" strip sewed into the backing. My good friend, Sharon Vrooman, gave me some Salt Air charms she had left over from a project. Lucky me. The pieced strip using those charms in the backing looks great. Made the back of the quilt more interesting. Thank you, Sharon.
The scrappy binding was pieced using different lengths of Salt Air Waves.
Salt Air Quilt finished at 62"x72"

I have to admit that I don't usually love Jelly Roll Race quilts. The addition of the red squares really makes your fabulous though. Love the multi-color border and the extra fun back. So cute! Congratulations on the finish.
