By this time in my quilting journey, I began reading quilting blogs. I finally figured out what a jelly roll was, and realized it’s potential. I found some jelly rolls in Joann, and I took one of them (with some scrap fabrics from quilts 25 and 26 (my baby’s new quilt and the alternating nine-patch) and made this fun baby boy quilt.
Using white thread in a loopy pattern, I machine quilted this top to a fun blue and green flourish pattern. I bound it with a green binding and I feel I am finally perfecting my binding.
I was free-motion quilting this quilt when labor began. I wanted to finish it so badly, but my body had other ideas and we made it to the hospital dilated to an eight. It’s probably a good thing I stopped :).
I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH READING QUILTING BLOGS HAS IMPROVED MY QUILTING! I felt like I was stuck in a rut. Here I had a passion for quilting, and it felt like I was alone with my sewing machine, and that I had no one to ask questions or learn from. THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU QUILT BLOGGERS! I believe I have gleaned knowledge from looking through so many of your sites.
I then decided to use these same jelly roll fabrics to make another baby quilt with another nine-patch with sashing design.
So, you’ve probably noticed that I’m not a professional photographer. I mostly use my iPhone because it is so easy to transfer photos, and I usually have my iPhone with me wherever I go. But, here is my double sided quilt. Now I know that one Jelly Roll can make about two baby quilts (with the use of additional fabrics).
