jelly roll finish

I have a finish for my January one monthly goal at elm street quilts. This is an older ufo ( 2013) made from a jelly roll and free pattern by cindy carter.

76 x 76

12 yards of fabric


I really liked the border with the rest of the quilt. I quilted simple circle loops in a light gray thread. I machine sewed the binding. I needed to open a new roll of hobbs 80/20 batting. I noticed it was not the same as other bolts. I wonder if there was a change in the manufacture. It seemed thinner and more prone to making a hole.

  2. This is very pretty, Maggie. What a great color palette.
    I have been looking for an easy, but pretty jelly roll pattern and this may just be it. Thanks for the link. As I looked through the pattern I thought I would not cut three rectangles of the background fabric to be sewn together--just cut a square. It appears that is what you have done. Good job!

  12. Oh how funny...I literally just started a quilt yesterday and finished it today in those SAME colors. I think we all are in need of some cheerful, hopeful, uplifting color in light of all the "dark" happening in our fallen world!!
