Jelly Roll "race" quilt - HORRIBLE
I started a Jelly Roll "race" quilt - you know - sew them all end to end, then pick up both ends and sew them lengthwise and continue.
I did this as a "backdrop" for some applique I wanted to do, I thought this was an "easy" way to have a backdrop that had some pizazz to it instead of just a plain cloth.
The technique is easy enough (even if I did purchase yardage and cut the 2.5" strips myself), but sitting at a sewing machine for that amount of time is not my idea of fun!! That first row was a killer!
I remembered there is a reason my ironing board is set up on the opposite side of the room from my sewing machine. I LIKE and apparently NEED the small breaks away from my machine.
I thought I was going to die from boredom!!!
