Old Red Barn Quilt Along #1

I don't think I could ever be accused of cranking out the quilts. As proof here is yet another quilt that has taken months to complete. I think I started this one in November/December, but first posted about it in January. That would be over 6 months from start to finish. Yep, I'm quick I tell ya!

The design is from a quilt along that was going on over at Old Red Barn Co. It is from Round #1 ~ they are now on Round #6!

This was quite possibly the easiest top to put together. Since I used a Jelly Roll, all the cutting was done for me. I think I got the whole top done in about an hour and a half. Easy, easy! I would definitely use a jelly roll again. And I would definitely make this same design again. . I did buy 2 half yard(?) pieces to make the borders. You know how I like quilts with borders.

For the back I pieced some solids from my stash. The light green is one I dyed myself last summer. It's the only color that's made it's way into a quilt thus far. I should really try harder to use the other pieces up...

With the scraps from this quilt I made a baby quilt that I showed off here.

Finished Quilt measures 57" by 67" (144cm by 170cm)
Directions and fabric requirements can be found here.
Fabric is Hello Betty from Moda.


  1. LOVE THIS! I bought all my fabrics for this quiltalong, but never got past that point! *sigh* I will get around to it, one day.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. It's a beautiful quilt!

    The tops are so fun to make but then they wait and wait to get quilted and bound. Me too.

  3. Really cool quilt.
    Love those colors.
