I received a jelly roll package at a recent retreat... and I have been fascinated with them. 40 some 2 1/2 inch strips - what to do, what to do. Now, mind you , I have TONS of UFO's to finish (some not even listed) so I really should have just put the jelly roll quilt on the list and moved on.... but I really, really love the fabrics and wanted to make something with them. So, I decided to make a braid quilt - and I am enjoying the results. These are the first two rows - looks like I will have 6 more rows, plus I have decided to do two rows with a cream color on one side - then sew these two together to form a cream insert down the middle of the quilt - perhaps a good place to add some wool applique???? or machine applique.... well, as a quilting distraction it worked out nicely. I found the pattern for the braid at Quiltville. It was being used as a border, but I thought a whole quilt would look great!
Thought For the Day
Multi-tasking arises out of distraction itself.
