Voting started for the Travellin' Pic Stitch Blog Hop over at Quokka Quilts. If you liked my block, I would really love your vote! :)
|Jelly Belly - Top|
To make this puppy, I cut 6 - 2.5" equilateral triangles from each of the eight fabrics (the jelly roll had 3 strips of each fabric), using the HexNMore ruler (still loving it!). I sewed them together to make a strip and added a 2" strip of white on either side.
Since the jelly roll strips were busy prints, I added 2.5" white squares between each strip to give some contrast. Then I just sewed it like a regular jelly roll race.
Once I had my big panel, I squared it up. I sliced off a strip of 6" from one end, inserted the triangle strip and then added the 6" strip back on.
|Jelly Belly - Backing|
Next up, some free motion quilting. I'm thinking large open feathers, like on Emma How's Green, Green, Green quilt.
Laura @ Quokka Quilts is hosting this week's TGIFF! party. I'm hosting next week so get those finishes ready! Think Jelly Belly will be done in time? We'll see...
Hope you have a fantastic weekend, all!
