The Jellyroll Joyride Continues With Grunge Metallics

Today I started on the 2nd of

4 beautiful jelly rolls

with the additional 2 yards of coordinating fabrics

from Moda’s future collections.

This is the Grunge Metallics collection also by Basic Grey

for Moda Fabrics.

I particularly like the dots in this collection.

There are 20 colors; 2 strips of each color.

1 strip has metallic dots,

the other has smears of metallic like the grunge fabric itself.

These are just some of them.

I’ve chosen these 6 to be the binding.

I went back & forth over whether or not they should all of dots or no dots,

& guess what?

That leaves the top with extra strips with dots or no dots………

It’ll look great either way!

Just make a decision already!!!

As I was preparing to start the quilt this morning

I was reminded of a conversation that I had not long ago.

Someone was mentioning how they don’t like

how jelly roll strips “shed” as they use them.

I told her I don’t have that problem.

I shake them out real well

as soon as I remove the adorable ribbon

& rubber band that holds the strips together.

Just shake & shake…

& shake…

until they’re done shedding.

Try this, it really works.

You don’t have to use a pretty Longaberger trash can but it helps, Lol.

& yes, I emptied the trash this morning before I took these pics!

It was time.

Next, I hang the adorable ribbon on the hook!

“Why,” you ask?

BECAUSE it makes me happy!

Now I must get back to work.

I have strips to trim,

then strips to sew

before I can bind this thing after dinner tonight while I watch TV.

Just Keep Sewing…

Susan

  1. Hi! How much yardage did you need for the backing to this quilt? I tried to find the pattern online but was not able to.

    Thank you!
