Description


July 2010 - This was a jelly roll quilt out of the book "Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam and Nicky Lintott.  The fabric was from a line called "Lovely" by Moda.  It was okay to make - a little too repetitious.  I will probably not make a quilt again using this pattern.  I'm still not certain the border is right.  I might take it off and make a much larger border.  Maybe that's why I haven't quilted it yet.  The fabrics are gorgeous - it's just that I don't think the pattern did them justice.

Dec 2014 - finally figured out how to finish this quilt.  I really hated the plain white narrow border that I used to finish the quilt.  That's why it's been sitting around for so long.  I did find a yard of the white dot coordinating fabric to make a 1 1/2 inch inner border.  Then I went to my local shop and they helped me pick an accompanying solid.  I think it's perfect now.  Now I have to quilt it.

The new boarder is a great addition!

Thanks. Before the new border, the proportions just weren't right. I'm pretty happy with it now.
