- jelly roll quilt

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.
Did you ever have a project where it seemed that something went wrong every step of the way? Well that is this project for me. The quilt is called Porch Swing from Kim Brackett’s book Scrap-Basket Beauties. Since it uses 2-1/2” strips I thought it would be a good quilt for my 40 yard dash. The instructions are straightforward and the blocks really aren’t difficult, it was all just operator error!
First off, I cut the wrong fabric for my outside blocks. I didn’t catch the mistake even after cutting all 32 of them so compounded ...
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 ... read more
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.
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.
But how about I add a little something more to it. Like a few solids. These pink ...
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.
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 ...
Okay, it is time to get some UFO accountability, so I am joining Finish-Along over at On the Windy Side. There are so many UFO's to do but I have identified four to finish for the first quarter.
1. Jelly Roll Quilt - needs to be quilted
2. Neutral Strip Twist Quilt - piece and quilt
3. Parry Primrose, A Walk in the Mountains block - finish the hand applique
4. Scrappy Mountains Majesty - piece and quilt
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.
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 ... read more
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!
