This top was made in April 2011. I am known in the guild for the use of Moda pre-cuts, especially Jelly Roll Quilts. If you don’t know what a Jelly Roll is – it is 40 strips of fabric, 2.5” by the width of fabric. I had to include at least one Jelly Roll quilt in this collection since it is what I am known for.
This quilt top was made when I was sewing with my friend Susan one day. I kept having to rip the seams because I kept sewing them wrong. Even after I thought the top was complete and posted about it, I noticed there was still a messed up seam. The pattern was very simple, it was just a matter of distractions while sewing – namely fun and friendship. Strait line stitching was the best for the quilting to accentuate the lines of the quilt.
