Dark Batiks Jelly Roll Race Quilt with Spacers Finished
I try to have at least one comfort/spare quilt made ahead, ready for when I might need one quickly. Sadly I needed to gift my spare comfort quilt last week. That meant I needed to make another. A year or two ago, I bought a Dark Batik Jelly Roll on sale to make a Jelly Roll Race quilt with spacers. To make this quilt a little longer I pulled some strips from stash and added a few rows.
For spacers and binding, I bought 2/3 yard of a dark batik. That was cutting it close. The backing was pieced with batiks from stash. I consider this quilt another stash buster.
It's quilted with horizontal organic lines using my sewing machine's walking foot, a 3.1 stitch length, variegated green thread in the needle, and a light blue thread in the bobbin. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished a soft 55.5" x 66".
