QJ - 2012


  1. These are super easy quilts and your's turned out so nice - love the fabric choices.

    Some very nice blogger sent me a few packs from Keepsake Quilting and I used one of those for a "JRRQ"... I cut my strips and used diagonal stitches - but I think the next one I do will be both straight and diagonal for a bit more 'interest' I wanted mine a bit wider so I added borders.... I'm hoping to get it quilted over the weekend and send to the victims of the fires in CO as per a post on Bonnie Hunter's blog....
    I need to get pictures on my blog >

    1. Thanks, Katie! - I like how yours turned out, too! (And you're welcome for the Scrap Bags - ;)) JRRQ are SO fast and easy - I might take a break from the LHQSQ and make another one. Might even put a 4-patch or something at the end of some of the strips - see what happens - ;))

  2. Those look like a lot of fun to make. And what a great way to crank out three quilts for three sisters.

    1. They are SUPER EASY - a nice break from intricate piecing - ;))

  3. I made one from scrappy strips, not a Jelly Roll with coordinated fabrics. I call mine "Hot Mess" because it is, in my eyes. I do better with some planning and order in my quilts and I know that but my little internet group was sewing for one of the gals birthdays. It is pinned and waiting to be quilted as the pro bono quilt I knew it would be all along. My pals say it doesn't look bad----but that could just be THEM. LOL

    1. That's why Jelly Rolls are so fun - already coordinated - already cut - just SEW!! ;))

  4. oh and good on your for making 3 of them for the three sisters---yours look so much better than mine and even has a fun back!

    1. They're like potato chips - can't make just ONE - ;))


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 The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.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 - ;))
