Big Project

Here is the big project I have been working on.
A large lap quilt gift for my step daughter . Her birthday was in March but I figure if I get it done before next year I am doing good!!!;-)
Used a Moda Allure by Sanae jelly roll of fabric she loved when I posted it on FB.
Pattern is a freebie called Strip Twist by Bonnie Hunter.
Love this shot with sun behind it. Looks like a stain glass window!
Waiting on a rain free, none windy day to spray baste the quilt sandwich.
Plan is to do my straight line quilting diagonally both ways to get diamonds.
The thread will really not jump out at you and backing will match thread as well.
If you look close you can see the blocks marching across on point and the secondary larger block made by 4 of the Strip Twist blocks.

This is my first Jelly Roll only fabric quilt top!
I have always used the jelly roll strips with other fabrics.
I did order a fat quater bundle to be sure I had enough.
Which worked out as I cut the first pieced blocks WRONG!!!
Working with a lot of bias edges in not fun but spray starch does help!

Pretty sure it will be loved! Modern gal and all!
Have enough left to make up a pillow or something else if I choose.
Will see. ;-)
