Number 108

All done!  

This quilt started out as Jubilee Celebration and ended up as something else.  I need to come up with a better name than Not Jubilee Celebration, maybe Summer Celebration or Sister's Celebration.



I love outdoor quilt pictures I see on other blogs so I thought I would give it a try.  We've had a wonderful summer of  rain, cool nights, and warm not hot days, which has resulted in a very green, very pretty lawn at my house.  What a perfect time to take some pictures.

Why do other bloggers outdoor quilt pictures look so neat, so serene, so perfect?  I didn't even notice the light breeze until I tried to get my quilt to lay flat.


And what's up with all those lumps and bumps?  I guess I have green but clumpy grass.

The colors sure are nice though.


This is Lifetime Quilt Number 108
The pattern is Jubilee Celebration by Bonnie Blue Quilts
The pattern finished at 91" x 108", my version finished at 76" x 90"
It has approximately 1,767 pieces from 67 different fabrics.

I would have to say this project was definitely a joint effort, the pattern by Paula Barnes, the kit by Country Sampler, and a few modifications by me.

My sewcation is officially over, but I took advantage of every free minute I had, back to my normal routine, which is pretty quilter friendly too.

  1. Grass lumps and bumps aside, it's another beauty, Thelma. I was wondering what made the quilt smaller - the block size? It looks like it has the same number in it. Sisters Celebration sounds good - do you have a sister? The colors are sure nice together - were they all in the kit?

    1. Yes, my Sister's Choice blocks finished at 7 1/2" and the Anvil blocks in the pattern finished at 9". I used fabric from my stash for the center blocks and used the fabric from the kit for the setting triangles and the border. No I don't have a sister, so that's probably why Sisters Celebration didn't really seem like the perfect name. It may be Not Jubilee Celebration forever!.

  2. It turned out great! I liked the name Sisters Celebration even if you don't have a sister. (I really like the alliteration from that name as well as the fact that you have to know the block name to get the name of the quilt.)

  6. It is just beautiful! I really admire how you can just work on one big quilt at a time and just get her done. My goal is to empty out my UFO pile and do just that.

  25. Your quilt is beautiful, but your comments about trying to take photos were great. How do those other quilters get such perfect photos? I have often wondered, too.

    Glad you were so productive on your sew cation--I love the contrasts in your colors and love the on-point setting for this quilt. It's wonderful!
