    My 'Try It' quilt

    I decided I wanted to try doing a jelly roll 1600 quilt, along with some other things, so thus the name.

    First I wanted to 'try' the jelly roll. Then I decided to 'try' putting a white square at the end of each strip. The I decided to 'try' a white inner boarder and the decided to 'try' a second border! Then I went all out and tried some big flowers for the back and used those flowers to quilt from the backside! I really like the way it turned out. The only thing I learned about jelly rolls is they aren't cut straight all the time so some of the pattern with lines in them are off center! Oh well! Hope you enjoy seeing this bright "Try it" quilt! Auggie my quilt inspector really liked it!

    I think it is super! I love how you scattered the little white squares around and the white border match. Very fun quilting from the back!

    You tried and you did great. Love the bright, happy colors. Great backing fabric, too.

    I love it, Great Ideals. I think this is the best one I've seen. Been going to try one someday. But will cut my own strips.
