My husband and I are building a house with his parents. It has been a long process and they say we will be moving soon, we will see, lol. Through it all my sister in law Kelli and her husband Jeff have been there to help design, consult and put some labor in. They are both architects and are amazing at what they do. When I saw Architextures I knew they had to have it in their house. When I was on the search for a pattern and came across Jaybird quilts Science Fair pattern I knew it was meant to be. It just suited them. The perfect thank you gift. I thought so and my Mother in Law thought so too. So we went ahead about bought the fabric.
I had a small hiccup when my jelly roll was 1/8 of an inch too narrow but we decided to shrink down the template and it worked perfectly. In the end the quilt is about 2 1/2 inches smaller in width and length. (Not a huge deal.)
I really enjoyed making this quilt. It was actually pretty quick and came together nicely. I finished it by quilting on an angle randomly spaced.
I ordered some yardage for the backing. I wanted to make the backing scrappy since the prints are so pieced within the quilt top.
I was happy with the results of making bias binding for the first time. It went in and out of those concaved angles perfectly.
