Third quilt of the year… Finished! This quilt was made from a Moda jellyroll that I’ve had sitting in my stash for far too long. It’s turned out baby quilt size and to be honest, at the moment I have no idea what I’m going to do with it. I’ll probably just keep it as an emergency baby gift or charity auction donation.
It’s the first time I’ve used a jellyroll and I don’t think I’ll bother again, it was all a bit too “painting by numbers” for me. Personally half the appeal of quilt making is putting the fabrics together, and never being entirely sure what the end result will look like. Even though I could, of course, have done a much more complex pattern, this was still a bit too predictable for me.
Anyway, with this one out of the way, I can now crack on with a couple of projects I am itching to do! First a snowball quilt for my mum, which needs to be finished by Easter when I go back to the UK, and after that I want to make a mixed patchwork and applique quilt inspired by a design that I saw on Kirstie’s Homemade Home.
