A couple of weeks ago when I had Clare to help me,
we basted foundations in preparation to make 4 more Jellyroll Joyride Quilts.
I had already chosen 4 beautiful jelly rolls
& 2 yards of coordinating fabrics each
from Moda’s future collections.
The Nova collection by Basic Grey was my first choice to sew.
I see that The Fat Quarter Shop has the jelly rolls on their site for pre-orders.
Isn’t this blue floral BEAUTIFUL!
I’m not a blue person, but I love this print!
Yesterday was the day.
I chose 6 strips for the binding and trimmed the rest of them to size.
Yes, I actually followed the pattern!
I picked out a fun movie to keep me company then set to sew.
By dinner time I had all of the strips sewn onto the foundation
& had the binding sewn onto the quilt,
then after dinner I watched TV
& sewed the binding to the back of the quilt by hand.
It’s the only hand work on this quilt
& if you don’t care for that bit of hand work
you can sew it by machine if you prefer.
Now it’s complete including the labels!
When I use one collection for the entire quilt,
I like to include a piece of the selvage with the collection name printed on it
& attach it with the label for reference later.
(I call this my artificial intelligence! Lol)
Isn’t it lovely?
I like that the ENTIRE collection is visible in the quilt!
Now you know why I’ve had this quilt pattern on my wishlist for a long time.
If you have a jelly roll that you’ve been hoarding,
waiting for the perfect quilt to showcase the collection,
you can find the pattern here on my website.
Just Keep Sewing…
