Lanterns in Parson Grey
I enjoyed Jess' Lantern-A-Long - very different, very quick, and very fun. It was, also, the first time I worked with a fabric line by Parson Grey. Although I found the Jelly Roll to be pinked too deep and strips closer to 2" instead of 2'5", I worked around those problem. But as quilters, we do come across that pattern or fabric that makes us become 'creative'.
I had to do a little 'seam' adjusting and had to go with a square quilt rather than a rectangle, because I didn't have the Kona Sand amount I needed for that. Just a 4" x 5.5" Kona was left. I have enough Jelly Roll strips left to use for the binding. Finished size is 62.5" square.
Once I have found the right backing, I will be quilting this on my home machine.
Thank you Jess for a lovely quilt along.
