A Finish : Jelly Roll Jam II from Sewing Under the Little Mushroom Cap


I have a small finish to share. A baby quilt made for a special baby just born last two week. She is still in the hospital in the incubator, but she is strong and healthy. Hopefully, she gain enough weight and would be ready for the outside world very soon.


I followed the wonderful tutorial by Fat Quarter Shop for this quilt. It is called the Jelly Roll Jam II.
The process was very quick and it is definitely the perfect way to use up some of the jelly rolls I have. This one is by Riley blake, Seaside ...

Garden Trellis Finished from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Still not much sewing going on around here but I did manage to finish the Garden Trellis quilt. 

April Showers

The pattern is from the book Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott and the fabric was a jelly roll from Bonnie and Camille’s April Showers line by Moda.  I quilted the center with all-over swirls and the border with continuous up and down lines. 

Things are settling down a little bit this week so I’m hoping to spend some serious time in the sewing room.  I have to go to work for a while this morning but this ...

The Serger Strip Quilt from One Designer Pursuing her Dreams

Serger Strip Quilt | ReannaLily Designs


After I folded my fabric in the Great Fabric Re-Fold of 2014, I decided I really needed to make up a few quick quilts.  I found a tutorial for really fast half-square triangles (which are really quarter square triangles – anywho).  I decided to take the same idea and make big ole quilt blocks with it.

Scrappy Strip Quilt Tutorial

Here’s a little tutorial for how it went:

**You can make this whole thing using a 1/4″ seam allowance and a straight stitch.  I used a serger because it was much faster.

First, I cut strips and serged them ...

DWM: April Showers from Patchwork Sampler Blog

While digging through some fabric the other day I came across a jelly roll from the April Showers line by Bonne and Camille.


I’m a big fan of their fabric so I opened up the jelly roll and immediately got the itch to make something with it.  A couple of years ago I made an easy jelly roll dorm quilt for my daughter using the pattern Garden Trellis from the book Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott . I thought that would be a nice pattern for this fabric so I started sewing.

This particular jelly roll didn ...

Quilt Catch Up from Cowtown Quilts

As those of you who have blogs know, blogging takes time.  I know that is why I haven’t gotten around to posting pictures of customer quilts I have worked on in the last month.  I will try to share a lot of pictures in this post and write just enough for you to get the info on these quilts.  I have to tell you that I have not snuck any surprises into any of these quilts.  I think my mind’s battle with itself scared me from adding any more surprises into other people’s quilts.  Here goes…

TGIFF! - Rainbow Creek Meets Niagara Falls from Quilt Matters

Happy, happy Friday, all! I'm excited to share my finished Rainbow Creek quilt with you! Woo hoo! Yes, another rainbow quilt. There can never be enough rainbow quilts, right? Right!

This was made using a jelly roll of Kona's New Bright Palette, a few more strips for the rainbow from my stash and some Kona Charcoal.

The quilting is straight-line like Mod 1600, but I added some wavy lines in some of the blue strips. Still love the fact that it looks quilted every 1/2" on the front, but when you flip it over, there are skipped ...

Friday Finish: Road to Oklahoma from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Recently I found a Boho jelly roll in my stash and cut it up for this Road to Oklahoma quilt.  Because there is so much background in the quilt I wanted to make a pieced border to add a little more color.  Of course there wasn’t quite enough left over from the jelly roll strips but luckily I also had a charm pack of this fabric so was able to cut a few squares to finish the border.

Rd to OK-1

The quilting is a pantograph called Tickle Too.

Rd to OK-2

This is a traditional block and I didn’t have a pattern, so ...

Rainbow Creek - A Work in Progress from Quilt Matters

Up A Creek turned into this:

Hmm. I don't know. I'm very happy with the Charcoal background (the colours look better against it in person), but I think some work needs to be done to adjust the green and blue sections. They feel a little rougher than the yellow/orange/red sections. And possibly move the light pink to the top. Thoughts?

Up A Creek from Quilt Matters

Time for something fresh. New. Fast. I'm feeling the need, the need for Speed!

Inspired by this quilt and this quilt, I took a jelly roll of the New Bright Palette by Kona, paired each strip with a Kona Charcoal strip and then cut the Charcoal strips at somewhat varying lengths. If I just used the jelly roll, the quilt top would have been 82 inches long. I decided to add four more colours though so that the top would finish at 90" long and could handle the quilting without shrinking it too much.

As the strips got sewn ...

Last reported,  there was 8 strips being sewn together lengthwise to give  16...

Here, there's 16 rows before it's cut again and then join those lengthwise again.   By now, the top is getting a bit heavier and a few pins were used to try and help the the strips together while sewing. 

Here, Heaty Good Wishes  < Moda Fabric > jelly roll is now going to be 16 strips wides and it is still joined lengthwise to give 32 strips wide next ... 

When the end is cut...

DWM - Labyrinth quilting from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

Most quilting this weekend.  Last weekend I finished quilting the larger version of Summer in the Park Tube Quilt.  I think I may be over my tube quilt phase, well at least until I build up another stash of 2.5 in strips.

I"m only seeing rainbows - no snow, nope no snow from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

Oh man 8 more inches projected today. Well I've got the day off, 3 different kind of soups in the freezer and the sewing machine is ready to go.  I was think of Spring and made a couple of rainbow baby quilts.  I'll post the patterns by next week.  I was using some of the material that I got at the estate sale of a quilter, oh what fun that was.  She loved the bright colors and I'm still using them!  The first one I'm calling Over the Rainbow, wish I would have had one more ...

Lil' Buckaroo and 3 little monkeys from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

I am definitely on a panel kick.  It's no secret, I LOVE the quilting more than any other part of the quilting process.  These panels, all I have to do is add that last border and it's not but pure fun!!! But I do make sure I have a little piecing action in there from time to time.

Finally finished!!!! Sofa quilt. from Sew Simple Life

I am thrilled that I have finally finished this quilt. It was originally supposed to be queen sized for my bed, but I just got so impatient and tired of doing the squares... I completed 35 squares {instead of the original 90 I wanted} and stopped there.
I wanted to free motion quilt but I couldn't really move the quilt around in the throat of my machine, so that was a little disappointing. But now that I'm finished I'm so glad it didn't fit because I just used my walking foot to do some straight line ...

Jelly Roll Quilt from Sew There I was...

This is a fun quilt to make as you don't know how it will turn out! Jelly rolls are 2 1/2 inch by 42 inch long precut strips that are rolled up. Moda has some precut Jelly Rolls and Robert Kaufman has some beautiful precut Roll Ups.  My strips are leftover fabric scraps from quilting projects.
