the jelly roll
So a couple of weeks ago Wendy of Knit and tonic, the blog I absolutely adore, was brandishing one of those jelly roll quilts on her blog that are apparently so easy to make. I didn't need much convincing. I found some lush fabric on Etsy that's been discontinues now and once I figured out how to attach the two strips together at an angle it all went swimmingly. Part of the quilt is indeed a jelly roll and the strip you see on top is just plain fabric with its pattern set perpendicularly to the jelly roll strips. I even found a very nice backing fabric to match the Volumes theme.
Was I surprised to hear :"Yeah, this one's pretty but where's our nice *woolly* one?" yesterday. Woolly? Woolly!? I haven't got any words!
*but apparently not everyone felt about it like I did.
