When my Bestie and I get together we always make something and this time we decided to make a jelly roll quilt. It was a bit ambitious given the time frame but we were determined.
Firstly we picked a jelly roll pattern "Sparkling Gemstones" then we chose our fabrics. We went with "Spring Magic" and a beautiful white tone on tone for the background.
We sewed, cut and ironed, taking turns as we only had one machine, one cutting mat, and one iron.
V deviated from the pattern a little and I said she was taking a short cut, in the end her blocks looked beautiful too. Where I've got 4 fabrics in a block, she only had two.
I sewed all the strips together and then when I sewed the first two rows together I discovered the blocks needed to be trimmed to 6" squares . (The pattern hadn't mentioned this...gggrrr). So I didn't get it finished before I left South Australia.
Since I've been home I've unpicked all the rows, trimmed all the blocks and reassembled it and Here's the completed top....
No idea when I'll get it quilted, so if Lizzie's Page is reading this, this is the quilt I want stippled, feel like practicing on it?
