Both projects are really cute. I have only used a jelly roll once, but it was fun to see it come together. 9-patch is a favorite of mine.
I really love the colors...looks wonderful and what a deal!
It must be the season of yellow and gray. I just finished one for my daughter and made a stripy pillow and 2 shams with the left overs. I love your border~ it really frames in the quilt nicely! You did good!
