My classes are winding down for the summer, so I have found some more time this week to catch up on my unfinished projects. I decided to tackle one at a time before I start anything new. First: the Jelly Roll Quilt. I have been sharing pictures of the squares as I have finished them throughout the spring and summer. Here is the last square that I just finished up. I think it is one of my favorites.
Some of the other squares were not as successful in scale or color combination, but I think this one worked out pretty well. Once I finished the last block, I couldn’t wait to put the whole top together. I raided my fabric stash, looking for something to use for the sashing and border. After sorting through everything, it seemed like pink polka dots was the way to go. I had just enough. Everything came together pretty quickly – but the result is a very girly-girl “Pink Jelly” quilt.
The finished top is 54×68 inches. This is the biggest top I have ever pieced and I am debating whether I can quilt it myself. I have a blue and white striped sheet that I am planning to use for the backing, along with a green and white polka dot fabric for the binding.
A special thank you to Konda over at Moose on the Porch Quilts for hosting this quilt along. I learned a lot of new things and loved watching everyone’s quilts come together. You can see some other finished quilts in the Flickr pool here.
