    Jelly Roll Race quilt top is done!

    It has taken me several days due to my surgery, but the first of two tops are done! I just love these colors! I am thinking either a green or orange for backing with brown binding, what do ya'll think?

    Sounds good to me. Your top is really pretty, would love to see it all finished.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    It is very pretty! I would use the orange for the backing and the brown, as you said, for the binding. Be sure to show us when you're finished!

    Thanks! It was my first Jelly Roll quilt. It is for my daughter's teachers as an appreciation for all they have done for her.

    I would have jumped at it too at that price!!! I love that fabric line and many of the others that Moda has out right now! I am so obsessed with the "Ruby" collection. It has reds, pinks, greens, aquas, blues. Looks very vintage!

    Love the Ruby line too! I think Moda is my new fav! I am going to use their Hometown by Sweetwater for my Mom's quilt.

    Have you seen the "Terrain" collection? Pinks and oranges and purples, oh my!!! I made a baby quilt for one of my instructors out of the Terrain collection and I have a baby quilt for a classmate that I am finishing up the quilting made out of the Ruby line. My favorite LQS carries mostly Moda so I have been a recent convert!!!
