Key to My Heart Quilt Top

In the past couple of days, I have finished sewing together the Key to My Heart quilt top.  
 It's a pretty sweet flimsy!

In addition to the jelly roll, I had won some Oasis yardage as well, so I went ahead and made the backing right away.  I had enough backing fabric left to make a pillow case too.

The border of the pillow case is from the cut-off ends of the jelly roll strip pairs used in the quilt, pieced end to end. 


What was left of the pieced pillow case border will soon become a mug rug.  And with that, I think I've squeezed about all I can out of that project and its scraps!
The quilt binding is ready to go, too.  The pink dot is from Bonnie & Camille's Vintage Modern, which seems to go nicely with the Oasis.

You're right! It is pretty sweet! And, you KNOW I love the fact that you squeezed out every last drop of those scraps!

That is so pretty. I can't wait to start Key to my Heart with a Jelly roll of Road 15 by Moda for my grandson. It's on the list for this Spring

Yep- you got your money's worth out of that lot (figuratively speaking) to make one gorgeous flimsy. I love your backing and binding too!

Boy, you are moving along! Is the bad weather giving you extra time home, or was the yummy colors too hard to leave alone? Good job, Miss P.

That is pretty sweet! And you've been BUSY! (I have too, just not in the got-your-sewing-groove-on kind of way). Love it! And the pillowcase! And the mini! Wow! Those pink polka dots are awesome as the binding.
