New Day, New Jelly Roll

I started my next quilt. I used the 1974 jelly roll I got for Christmas and the pattern I won from the Thimble Blossoms give away, Jelly Filled. I love starting a new quilt. Just the anticipation is so much fun. I also love unrolling a new jelly roll. I think I'm becoming obsessed with them.

So far it's going super fast. Can't say the same for binding my merry-go-round quilt. It took almost an hour just to sew the binding on yesterday afternoon with all those dips and points! Hopefully I can start on the binding tonight!

I haven't used any jelly rolls yet. Yours is turning out so nice.

Love your 1974 quilt...I really love that line of fabric, and the pattern is cute as well! And as for binding "merry go round"--I don't even want to think about it!

Oh my gosh... you do know that there is fine print on the patterns that says if you make one of them out of 1974, you have to send the quilts to me, right? Right? ;-) I LOVE it. Awesome fabric choices! You have been sewing up a storm, girl! Look at all those beautiful finished quilts...

I think there's a lot of us who love our jelly rolls, layer cakes and charm packs...I'm one of them I confess!

Love your quilts, keep up the good work and good luck on finishing up some projects.
