Tutti-Frutti & TGIFF

I’m super excited to host TGIFF (Thank Goodness It’s finished Friday) this week. Please click on the link at the bottom of this post and share your finishes and WIPs.

I’d like to share my recent finish – Tutti-Frutti. Years ago I got a jelly roll of a batik line called Gelato by Timeless Treasures. My favorite ice cream flavor growing up was tutti-frutti. It has a light fruity flavor with bits of candied fruit called tutti-frutti. This fabric line of pinks and golds reminds me of tutti-frutti ice cream.

DSCN9218I made a small quilt for a mini quilt exchange some years ago but the rest of the jelly roll sat in a shoe box once again waiting for that perfect pattern to show up.

The perfect pattern was a non-pattern. I attached each 40″ strip to about 30″ strip of white background on both ends. I cut each the strip in half at with different lengths to give a random look. It took me for ever to work out the placement of the strips to get a random but balanced look that I was happy with.IMG_1102

  1. Once again, I could gaze at your graffiti-style quilting all the live-long day (isn’t that a song?) Simple but effective layout, with the gorgeous colours and textures of batiks. Thanks for hosting TGIFF 🙂


  2. I love the quilts! Those colors are fabulous. They make me think of a scoop of black cherry ice cream, for some reason. I should probably go get some to eat, just to be sure! Haha! Seriously, though, the quilts are beautiful!


  3. Tutti Frutti brings back such fond memories of special occasions. Dinner in a fancy restaurant was a rare thing, followed by the ultimate dessert of tutti frutti ice-cream. Your quilt is beautiful, the quilting is gorgeous and the inspiration to use up leftover jellyroll bits is worthy of replication. Hope your Diwali was bright and joyful. Sending hugs and best wishes.


  4. Hi Vasudha! I didn’t realize you were hosting a linky party today. I’m a day late, but I’ll go link up something and add your website to the post. What a beauty you are sharing today. Those fabrics!! And the name – so very, very fitting. Happy Saturday! ~smile~ Roseanne


  5. Those colors are so yummy, and look great against the white background. What a great name (and story) for your quilt! Thanks for sharing it on Main Crush Monday!
