Wee Play

IMG_8514

This was my first jelly roll experience and I’m hooked. Especially since I have every fabric from my favorite line in this quilt and it came in one big roll. The inspiration came from my favorite pattern by the lovely Camille. She has a similar version for sale here. It took a whole jelly roll plus 6 strips from my stash and ended up with a 50” by 70” quilt top. And no big surprise…I love it.

Love it, & need that fabric!

Nikki said...

How is it possible that you finished a quilt top on 4/27, had it quilted by 5/5 and have finished another fantastic top by 5/11? How do you find the time!?!

That is really sweet! It cheers me up just to look at it! I've never bought a jelly roll before, your quilt has me in spired (once I can get to a quilt store - The closest one is 45 minutes away!) Great job - thanks for sharing!

Leslie said...

gorgeous...i just finished a quilt quite like this one in flutterby fabric. i love using the jelly rolls and getting all the colors.

Question: I just bought my first jellroll (Moda's Sanae--I just love the orange and the hummingbirds). I've gotten into the habit of washing fabrics before using them. Do the jellyroll strips come out a mess when you wash them? Should I just skip it this time?

Thanks!

(I love all the red and aqua in your quilt!)
