Raspberry Roll

Hello Everyone,

Have you ever seen a Raspberry... Roll?  Well, this could be your first time.

This quilt was designed by me for Quilt Magazine and I have to say it is quick and fun!


Using 2.5 pre-cut strips in batiks, gives this quilt a great scrappy look.


The entire top and binding were created from 2.5 inch strips. The only yardage needed was for the backing.


I quilted it with a pattern called Feathered Truffles.  I love how it turned out.


Since it was nice out the other day, I had taken it outside for a photo shoot.  All the above photos were taken by me.  It was great to have a 50 degree day in December!! Plus the lighting is waaaay better outside.


This above photo was also taken by me outside.  Yes, the grass looks pretty green still doesn't it?  It is on the southern side of the house that could be why.  But I love the contrast of the colors of the quilt against the grass.


This is one of Quilt Magazine's photos.  Love it on the sofa!


This is their flat shot.  Their photographers always do a great job.


You can find it in the current (Feb/March 2012) issue.  If you want another quick, easy, and fun quilt to make this could be it!

Love, love, love this quilt! Love the fact that it uses a jelly roll, love the fact that it uses batiks, and love the fact that the machine quilting is so perfect with the quilt! You are amazing...I will start looking for that magazine. Congrats for your submission and thanks for sharing.

That is a wonderful quilt, Jackie! And it looks great both outside and in the brightly lit room, too. Congrats on being published again!! The weather here has been so mild that I just put my stakes along the driveway in this week- usually the ground is frozen by now. Maybe we'll get some snow for the holidays (as opposed to early October!) Have a great week and a wonderful Christmas!
