Jelly Roll Rug

Something different for the New Year.  All the aspects of quilting and the result is a rug.

This little rug is made from a "Jelly Roll".
It is about 30" by 40".
A jelly roll consists of  2.5 "  wide strips, the width of fabric (usually 42 " ), 42 of them.
The batting used was also precut and on a roll.
Just a bit spendy, however it was fun and quick.

Considering the volume of folded fabric and the amount of stitching, this should be able to take a
lot of wear. I hope.

I will make another but not with precuts, 😉'the stash'  has enough for me to cut a jelly roll's worth.
Happy Quilting,
Gudrun

Garden Weave - work in progress

I can not find the pattern I used for this, and can not at the moment credit the designer or the fabric line.  This is a large quilt, I didn't want to have any left over fabrics. So It is larger, 90 x 110 .

I used as much as I could of the fabric, and subbed in a few of my own.  I did the straight line quilting and then had to move on to items needing attention NOW. Decisions to be made on how to quilt this one. Quilting makes the quilt when there are those big open spaces.

Farm animals and Veggies

This little quilt has been spoken for,  baby girl is arriving soon. Her Daddy farms.  
Daddy is a sheep farmer   :))  but Grandpa was a dairy farmer.
 I hope there were chickens some where.












Eight placemats from a collection of vegetable fabric.  Mostly veggies, mushrooms = fungi ....coffee bean? Bean = Veggie, right?

Not exactly sure where these will live. 





Happy Quilting,

I made two.

Happy Monday,
It has been a great day so far.  I have been having technical difficulties with Volkswagen, to finalize the return of my diesel VW.  I feel so much better.  I have choosen a new car and the turn over takes place in a couple weeks with time and place booked.
Now to quilting,  I mde a very scrappy large quilt out of 4 inch squares ( I have a good size box of these.)  I got such rave reviews I made another one.



If your wondering....I have lots of 4 inch squares left.
