I really shouldn't look through old magazines late at night. While trying to decide which old issues to chuck and which to keep, I stumbled across a very simple pattern. The light went on, so to speak, and the next morning, I started sewing. Last Christmas, Katja gave me this mini jellyroll and I knew it would be perfect. Thanks Katja!
I chose 14 strips and the background I got while on holiday. Next I cut each strip into random lengths, and sewed them back together in no particular order, until I had one looooooong strip.
Then I cut eight lengths off, about 39" each. The rest of the long strip is used for binding. How easy is that? Sashing was cut 2 1/2" .
Top and bottom border was cut 4"
Here it is all quilted up. I did a little loopy thing. The easiest free motion ever. If you are interested in knowing more, just send me an e-mail and I will give you more detailed instruction. It's from an old Quiltmaker magazine.
Oh, and I wanted to show you the wall art. Yesterday my daughter and I went out and got a stencil and a couple bottles of paint. I told her what I had envisioned, and she did it. She painted, and I sewed.
I love what she did! A little something for the babies to look at while Mommy takes care of business.
Each month, Megan of Crooked Seams hosts a jellyroll party. Today I am linking up : )
