Pattern by Swirly Girls Design
This Crackerjack quilt was such a fun and quick quilt to make! It is one of the Swirly Girls Design-Dashing Bobbin Series patterns.
These are made to be quick piece patterns and they don’t break the bank! Best part…..it only takes 10 Fat Quarters and some background fabric….love that.
I am so in love with this black pin dot I used for the background! I could use an entire bolt of this…..the only place I could find it was at a big box store**gasp**, so I am not sure what the name of it was.
The blocks are made from Daydream in Jewel by Swirly Girls Design for Michael Miller Fabrics.
I quilted this in an all over meander or stipple design using a 50wt. Aurifil 100%cotton in white. This actually blended a little too well! I could barely see where I had quilted ….BONUS>>> you can’t see if I made any mistakes, Lol:)
Here is the back…
I decided to use a different color within the blocks. I went with a teal 50wt. Aurifil 100% cotton. I thought the white was just too stark inside the block.
You can see the teal did not have too much contrast on the back so I was happy with it. It can get tricky finding threads that blend on both sides. I’m just now noticing the random thread on the loose…we all have those:)
Wondered how it would look if I did the whole quilt in this color???
I used my handy personal quilt labels that you can have made HERE. These are awesome and cheap!
Don’t ask me why I decided to use the teal thread on the binding, you always want to draw attention to your binding……right! Not.
I used THIS machine binding tutorial.
