A New Project

Today I am starting a new project. I always try and do one at a time as I don't like half finished sewing hanging around. This is not to say that there aren't two projects half finished! After doing a couple of smaller projects recently, I  have been wanting to break into my Trade Winds jelly roll and FQs to make a bright and vibrant quilt. So this is what I have been doing...

I am roughly following this pattern but I am also doing my own thing. I have no idea how big it will be but I am going to just keep going making blocks until the jelly roll is all used up. As the sun won't shine I have resulted to using this fabric to keep me mindful that it is summer!

  6. I've never used a jelly roll but if I did I think this would be a fab pattern. Can't wait to see more of this as you progress!

  17. I've got a project going with the same fabrics. Love them. I'm using layer cake and making a tablecloth. Debating on whether to use flannel rather then batting for the middle so it's a little thinner. Any ideas?
