"Jennifer's Love" quilt is like a burst of fresh romance. It is bright, new and hard to resist giving a hug and cuddle. This quilt is also very forgiving; mistakes are hard to make and any imperfections add to the relaxed charm of the design. The center squares are made of half-square triangles in a unique shortcut method that gives a finished quilt square after the initial piecing, no further quilting needed. Even better, the quilt is reversible, the back as beautiful as the front!
"Jennifer's Love" is a quilt as you go project. That means that you assemble all the quilt layers in sections, quilt each section and then sew the sections together. The entire quilt is finished in less time than it takes just to make a traditional quilt top. To make it even faster and give a frilly edge to the quilt, there is no binding, just a clipped edge.
To give added texture to the quilt, the seams are sewn inside out and clipped to give a chenille style edge to the inside seams. The seams are designed to fray to the stitches, giving a relaxed, unaffected look to the quilt.
Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.
I love designing and making quilts, especially folk and story quilts. All my patterns are easy to follow with step by step directions and photos. Every pattern begins with a quilt created and sewn on my table top machine.
I have a blog where I share the design process behind the patterns, MarylandQuilter.com. Come by and visit!
