QJ - Jeopardy II


QUILT JOURNAL - JEOPARDY II
(MOSTLY YELLOW)

Machine Pieced
Machine Quilted
Queen-Size
Started - 1995
Completed - 1999

Block pattern from "Strips That Sizzle"
By Margaret J. Miller (c) 1992

I had a lot of yellow left from Jeopardy I - here -

So I made the center of Jeopardy II yellow -



I made the blue borders for balance -

And instead of blocks of 1/2-blue and 1/2-yellow-

I made each block from the same color family -

The backing fabric is a fabulous blue, white, and yellow print -





QJ - 1995

  1. I have that book and have never made a thing out of it - I think I have an aversion to strips :-)

    1. You and your strips - they are actually VERY easy and REALLY fun - no matchy-matchy perfect cuts - just sew the dang things to some paper - cut them however - and take the paper off . Sew first - cut later - no thinking - and perfect for scraps - ;))

  2. I like this one! I love yellow to begin with but the backing really tied it all in together. Is it one that lives at your house?

    1. YES - this one lives at my house. It used to hang on the wall in the hallway where my design wall is now - ;))

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
