Gratitude 12


Today I am grateful for Jelly Rolls.
Click on a photo if you want to see a bigger picture!


They take the hard work out of chosing fabrics which is helpful for me as I'm not that colour confident still.

I have been working on the quilt at my quilting class. Nearly everyone in the class made one - and it was great to see how different fabrics work with the pattern.


I love this particular fabric range. I've forgotten what it's called but is so funky and fun. I don't think there's a material in it that I don't love.

It's not quite finished - I still have to do two borders, back it, quilt it and bind it. I was going to give it away..................but I've kind of fallen in love with it. I find it so hard to part with my quilts................ sigh



cheers

Its beautiful!! I love the colors, just incredible. I wish I could quilt. I don't know how to quilt, knit, sew. I'm almost domestically useless!!

I would buy something like that in a store.

That's a really lovely quilt............keep it! I've never used jellyrolls but they sure would make it easier being precut, there are so many great books and patterns around utilising them.
