naked bed challenge update

I decided to go with the postage stamp quilt using a Buttercup by Fig Tree jelly roll - I also used a Moda Solid Butterscotch for the background.

I received the background fabric last Friday so spent Saturday and Sunday cutting the background and then sewing the strips together however the pattern I'm using (thanks Rachel from PS I Quilt) has a finished size of 60 x 80 inches and I've decided that I want to make it bigger for my bed so I'm going to go 80 x 90 inches which means I need to order some more fabric and make more blocks - so I won't reach the deadline which Sarah kindly extended to next Monday but I think I'll be happier with the bigger size.

all the strips have been sewn and cut ready to make up into blocks

I've ordered the extra fabric so will wait until all the strips are done before putting the blocks together.

So this weekend I can hopefully get Marney's mini wild things nearly finished.


  1. I love the fabrics together. They are so lovely!

  2. Thanks for sharing under our Jelly Roll theme this week!! I've never made a quilt in one color tone.....these yellow are beautiful!
