Katie Jumpe Rope Quilt ~ Bento Box Quilt

It's done!
The quilt measures 60 inches x 72 inches

Complete with a pieced backing and hours of quilting straight lines.  Most of the quilting lines were straight lines on either side of a seam line, or diagonal lines through the large blocks.  I also ended up doing some "in the ditch" quilting which still requires a high level of effort and concentration!


The binding fabric is a Katie Jump Rope stripe in Orange:


And there was lots of it (machine stitched, as usual):


I have thoroughly enjoyed piecing this quilt, choosing the fabrics, preparing the blocks, cutting and rearranging them until I was happy with the layout.  I can highly recommend this easy piecing design.


My Etsy Store has been updated and you can find the listing for this quilt here.  SOLD

Thank you for stopping by,
Rita

  2. Gorgeous Rita. I really love the warm, fall colors in this one. It feels like fall this morning over here on the other side of the planet!

  3. The fall colors in this quilt are so pretty and I am anxious for fall here in California, but apparently it is supposed to be about 107 degrees tomorrow. *sigh*

    The quilt is beautiful!

  4. What kind of Machine are you using? Are you using a fancy quilting frame or just the roll and sew method?

  29. What a perfect binding! Gee, you would have thought she planned it that way... It's too late now, but it occurs to me that one interesting thing would have been to throw in one block in the blue/green colourway.

  31. I'm usually just a lurker, but I had to tell you that I love this one! Bento Box quilts don't normally appeal to me, but this one rocks it! I love the color choices, piecing, quilting and binding. The whole thing is just great! I always love your work, but this one brought me out of lurker-ville to tell you! ;)
