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. IMG_8516

    Wow! Very very cute. I love the color combos you chose in each block.

    I had no idea a jelly roll would make such a big quilt top!

  27. Nikki May 12, 2009 at 2:11 am #

    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!?!


  28. Trisha May 12, 2009 at 4:45 am #

    Super cute! Jelly rolls are addicting!

  29. essie May 12, 2009 at 7:35 am #

    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!

    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?


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