A Cup of Coffee and a Jelly Roll from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

I love the videos from Jenny at Missouri Star Quilt Company some awesome quilt ideas. I love her videos.... I have decided on doing the Jelly Roll Race II quilt.

A couple of gals one year at retreat had a jelly roll race, it was fun to watch them sew along. This should sew up in no time.... I want to say I should ...

DWM: Sweet and Simple from Patchwork Sampler Blog

My big design wall news is that I actually (finally!) have a design wall.  In all my years of quilting I’ve always made do with whatever flat surface was available…mostly the floor.  I have a small piece of batting hung in front of the fabric storage cupboards in my sewing room but it’s kind of a pain because it only holds a few blocks at a time and I have to move it every time I need to get in the cupboards.  The house we live in has never been my dream house and it has small ...

WIP Wednesday: Island Chain from Patchwork Sampler Blog

This quilt really taxed my brain.  The units for this quilt are super simple and I thought it would be a piece of cake to put together but it was a struggle.  After working on the layout for an hour and a half this is what I had-several holes and chains that didn’t link.

Island Chain layout


Things just weren’t working out and even with using the diagram in the book and my fabric key I couldn’t figure out the layout.  Finally I abandoned it and regrouped.  Things worked out better the second time and now I’m ready to ...

Jelly Roll Quilt - Finished! from The Nifty Stitcher

I got my jelly roll quilt finished.
its gone from this....

to this.........

It took a while, but I made all the petals and leaves separately and sewed them down whilst the quilt was still on the frame.
I stitched the Suffolk puffs down by hand.

 I'm pretty pleased with my quilting here.  It was a challenge to get the feathers to snake around the center section and get them to fit into the space. I've not done that before. I had to roll the quilt back and forth - a lot.

I will be entering this into ...
