This was a very good week. I managed to get the Merry-Go-Round quilt put together and quilted. The fabric in was for the backing of this quilt. It took me two weeks from the time I purchased the jelly rolls to getting it bound. I love it when that happens. 
I used two Eden (by Lila Tueller) jelly rolls plus a few extra strips to get this twin size (65 x 80) quilt. DD wanted purple and she got purple.

I used my Circle Lord to quilt the spirals on the "plates". I like how it turned out.

Because I was working on that quilt not much was done on the DWR. I did sew a couple of arcs to a melon to see how hard it is going to be. I can tell that I am going to have to be very careful to match up the seams where the pink and the while meet. I do like the look though. Hopefully I will get more circles appliqued down this week.

I hope you have a great week creating from your stash.


  1. Your DWR is stunning! Someday I'll get back on mine, but in the meantime, I'm cheering you on!

  2. I love your DWR!! Very creative. :)

  3. 4th of July. My husband says it isn't complete without hot dogs, burgers, potato salad and watermelon! the merry go round quilt--I want to try this pattern, but I'm BURIED in projects! I am watching the DWR, I don't do the "A" word, but I admire anyone who does.

  4. Penny ~ It was so fun running into you today! I am happy that you said something to me.
    I love your blog and simply adore the quilt that you just completed. Very pretty out of the Eden line of fabric.
    Hope to see you around again soon!

  5. Are you using a pattern for your Double Wedding Ring quilt? I plan to make a traditional one for myself but thought one like yours would be great for my son and future daughter in law.
