  1. they are talking about doing this at our next sew-in but I believe I will pass and work on something else that I have kitted up. The other ideas are to work on UFOs and comfort quilts. Lord knows, I have enough of them!

    BUT I love how yours turned out.

    1. Thanks, Linda! They are really FUN to do and the jelly roll does all of the work - color-wise. All you have to do is some mindless sewing and it pretty much makes itself. I like how I got three different quilts out of the same three sets of FQ and jelly rolls - similar but not the same - with NO planning - it just worked out that way - ;))

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
