Time to share another quilt that I made before my blogging days began.
This is my Juice Box Sofa Quilt based on the Juice Boxes design by Cluck Cluck Sew
I made the quilt as part of a class taught by Karen Haynes at my LQS in Manhattan and that's when she introduced me to the June Tailor Shape Cut Plus ruler (I know I say this over and over but if you haven't checked out my tutorial for this then please give it a go - it really is a must-have tool for any quilter :) )
I decided to sash the quilt to make it larger and I think that and the neutral colourway have given it a very different feel to the original quilt pattern which is more suited to being a child's quilt. My sashing is 2" finished so 2.5" strip cuts - other than adding the sashing my quilt is made exactly following the pattern sizes given.
Here are some extra photos that I've found that I took during the piecing process.
And some detail shots of the quilt - these are taken indoors so you can see the colours much better without the strong sunlight.
And finally, here's Thatcher (known as Tatty to her friends) - as you can see, she LOVES the quilt!
Finished quilt size 72" x 56"
Top Sheet - when I made this quilt I wasn't at that time paying any attention to who designed the fabrics or even what they were called and I've used so many in it that, apart from the backing fabric, I can't list them for you.
Backing Sheet - the main fabric is Dear Stella - Doodle Paisley - Grey.
