horizon

Who doesn’t love a Jelly Roll Race quilt?  
This one was made with a Horizon Jelly Roll by Kate Spain.  Such pretty colors.

My daughter pieced the top as a way to practice her 1/4 inch seams.

I quilted it with a different pattern in each fabric.  Yep, that’s a lot of different quilting patterns.  Good practice for me as wellUnfortunately, I was not able to capture it in a photograph :(

The back and binding are also from the Horizon line.  I cut the binding on the bias because I think this print looks better if you don't try to line it up.

We gifted this joint project to my mother who just celebrated a big birthday.  She takes it with her to watch the sun rise on the Florida horizon!


Have a wonderful week!
