Another Finish

This is my second finish for 2012 and actually the first one that I started in 2012. It is my Jellyroll Race quilt. The photo below is the back of the quilt. the colors show up a bit more true in that one.
I worried that the ripples would not quilt out because of the bias edges  in the setting triangles but it is nice and flat on the back as well as the front.
I quilted it in rows of curvy lines about 2 inches apart. That shows up better on the back. I followed the seam lines on the front and the quilting doesn't show up as well in the horizontal lines. No matter, it is not the quilting that  is the star here but the fabric. This was a Moda Central Park Jellyroll and I really love it. The the binding is the orange print that I used in the blocks on the back.
This is a closeup of the block  on the back. The way the yellow with  orange and purple print blends into the yellow and white print might not appeal to everyone but it appeals to me; there is still some colorwash quilter in me.
I gave away all of my 2 inch 1 1/4 inch colorwash squares. I know I would not use them again but I might make 9 patch  colorwash quilts  again and for that I will use strip piecing.

Hi, this was sure a great project to kick off the year. I love the quilting. Did you mark the grid first? Kathy
