This quilt has been in the works for years.
I knew I wanted to make it when I first saw the pattern in this book
I loved the name as well as the design. Yogi and BooBoo were a part of my childhood and I can't help thinking of them and laughing at their antics when I recall the name of this quilt.
This is hands down my favorite quilt book from my favorite designer. Carrie - you are a genius! I bought this book in 2015 and started pulling fabrics from my stash for this quilt immediately. I'd cut and add fabrics from time to time
Every stitch was a joy - I just love these fabrics
Jackie quilted fun leaves across it - always adding her perfect magic touch
The backing is a $4.50 find from the clearance section
at a wonderful little quilt shop called Front Porch Quilts in Benjamin, Texas:
I can always find something in my stash for bindings and this print made the cut to finish off this happy, scrappy quilt.
I love Autumn and I was surprised this was the first Fall quilt I made and, in my world, Fall quilts in February are perfectly acceptable.
😉 The day I took these pictures, it was 70°, but this morning it was 12° with a stiff breeze blowing:
The setting desert sun made this quilt positively glow:
But the earlier shots give a truer depiction of the colors. Jellystone finishes at 77"x92" and I'm so tickled to have it finished! From the first stich to the last - it was such fun!
