Life's Embrace from Sew Preeti Quilts

Jelly Roll Quilt from The Nifty Stitcher


Hello quilty friends

I've been keeping myself busy working on a couple of new quilts.
This is the second time I've used a jelly roll and I decided to use a little design I doodled a while back.   First time I used a Bonnie Hunter pattern.


The intention was to use lots of half square triangles - 2 1/2" sounded good to me.





I didn't want to make this too big so it could be a lap quilt or a wall hanging.
Then my favourite part - the quilting.....  

For the first time ever I actually marked the ...

Blush & Bashful from Sew Preeti Quilts

Finishing Joyce's quilt was such a big deal for me. I wanted to take it easy for a bit.
I did not want to start anything new. But a quick finish will be oh so good. So, I picked up the pink (not UFO) blocks that I mentioned here.

Beginning Blocks

There were a total of 81 blocks. I could arrange them 9 by 9, add a border and have a quilt top in no time. Nothing wrong with that.

Initial Layout

But how about I add a little something more to it. Like a few solids. These pink ...

DWM: Stamp Top Finished from Patchwork Sampler Blog

There wasn’t a lot of time for sewing over the weekend since we made another trip down to Milwaukee but I did manage to finish the Stamp top.  I decided to go with the off-white sashing since there is no gray in the border fabric.

Stamp top

I wish I had a different fabric for the border, but this is what I could get.  The colors are okay but it’s really hard to work with such an obvious directional print.  It was made worse because there are two rows of blue diamonds, then a row of bright lime green.  I ...

Good Intentions from BedofRosesMQ

I had good intentions about trying to post more often this year. Then I had to get my taxes for the State done so I've been working on those. Before I started them I did manage to quilt and bind this jelly roll quilt.

 
After we made it through the really cold weather we had a couple of days that were nice and sunny and then freezing fog moved into the area and has been with us for the last four days. It's supposed to move on out tomorrow, but then we have rain/snow showers to look ...

TGIFF! - Quick Fix from Quilt Matters

Welcome to TGIFF! I'm celebrating my first finish of 2015. Woo hoo!

This jelly roll race quilt made with a Kona Dark jelly roll was a quick quilting fix for me so I'm going to stick with the name -- Quick Fix. :)

It's very much like my Mod 1600 so that we could have coordinating family room quilts for TV watching.


I straight-line quilted every 1/2" from the seams using Aurifil 1158 on the front and Coats & Clark white on the back. Unlike Mod 1600 though, I didn't do any diagonal quilting and I used Kona ...

Quick Fix - A Finished Top from Quilt Matters

I sometimes have a hard time getting back into the studio after a break. Especially if it's nice and clean from having guests. LOL!

I wasn't ready to get back into a work in progress after this break so I decided to start fresh. I also wanted something fast. A quick fix, if you will. ;) 

Few quilts are faster than a Jelly Roll race. I've been wanting a coordinating quilt for Mod 1600 for a while. With the boys getting bigger, it's getting harder to share it when we watch a TV show with them. Another ...
