Jolly Rancher


This is Jolly Rancher, another scrap vortex made from my cool color solid scraps.  I pieced it back in July right after I pieced Starburst.  Now I just need to finish a scrap quilt called Skittles.  (I really do have one planned and maybe started.) 


I quilted it on the Bernina Q24 in an open combined quilting design.  I quilted feathers, flowers, hearts, leaves, paisleys, and spirals.


It took me longer to quilt than Starburst because it required more thinking.  I love the results from the improv quilting on an improv quilt.




It has purple minky on the back.



Bunny loves to feel the fuzzy, fuzzy, fuzzy minky.


I bound the quilt in navy blue leftover from my niece's quilt.


I had enough scraps to make it 58 by 72 inches without borders.


It is fun seeing how different Starburst and Jolly Rancher turned out.


Jolly Rancher is living in this cabinet for now. But it is always ready for a snuggle.


This is my ninth quilt finish for this year.  That is about one per month.  Quilt production has definitely been slower this year, but there is a time and a season for everything.

P.S.  I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar (including Oh, Scrap).  Check them out for more quilty inspiration.

  1. Ah, you may have only finished nine, but there are so many more quilts in your house to enjoy! I need to spend some time on making some for my house. We really don't have that many.

  2. Improv quilting on an improv quilt is a fun and well executed idea. I think the quilts you have been able to make this year are awesome and I'm glad you know that there is a season for everything. :)

  3. Another beautiful quilt with beautiful quilting. I like the idea of being more selective with scrap quilts, although I have trouble doing that. All those candy names are making me crave for candy!

  4. These two remind me of Helen‘s Mrs. hot hot hot and Mr. cool quilts. For some reason now I can comment on my phone but still not on the laptop… Weird. I can just imagine Miss Bunny wiggling her pudgy little fingers through the pile!

  5. Loved seeing your Jolly Rancher and Starburst quilts! Such pretty colors in both. Do you machine bind when you use Minky?

  6. I love what you've done (and am a sucker for a nice purple backing, especially in a minky!)

  8. The picture of the back just about had me drooling!! I love that amazing texture and your quilting looks so perfect. I love the front, too, and I can't wait to see the Skittles version :)

  10. I love both of your sv quilts. They are much lovelier than the regular Scrap Vortex. The limited palettes make all the difference. They really sing!

  14. Dimpled fingers making little indentations in the minky - is priceless. Love the color combination - blues, greens, purples. Looks like two quilts for two siblings. Love everything about these quilts.

  15. Great idea to sort your scraps into cool and warm for these quilts. It makes the quilts scrappy but controlled at the same time. Love both of them. And of course, your quilting is beautiful, as always. I just tried quilting an all over swirly design and it was not coming out how I wanted it so I reverted back to straight lines...

  16. I'm not big on solids, but between the colors and the quilting... I absolutely LOVE this quilt!!!
