Size:  1.40 MBA couple of the pics are a little dark but you can get the idea. At first I thought that it turned out a little wild, but now I kinda like it.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Quite by accident, I found out that the "scrappy surprise" quilt I made for my great granddaughter followed the Hidden Wells pattern. I used four totally different jelly rolls to come up with my double sized quilt, but I might have done a better job of Hidden Wells if I had known there was such a pattern at the time.

    I bought small Jelly Rolls from this site: http://www.jellyrollfabric.net/ One set was light pink; the second was light pinks and spring greens mixed; another was different prints of lavender and the last was strips of different purples.

    You might follow the tutorial link (below) to see just how easy it would be to do the Hidden Wells pattern using this method. This tutorial never mentions the Hidden Wells, but watch what she does and you will see how easy it would be to adapt to the pattern.

    I have never heard of the Hidden Wells pattern before so I clicked on the link and WOW I really like this. Thanks for sharing the link and for the question that led me there. The members here are just wonderful about sharing thoughts and ideas with everyone else. Thanks all the board members.

    I am wondering if I couldn't use up some of my striped fabric to do this? What do you think?

    I don't know why not...I used some plaid in mine. It really adds interest.

    Thanks for the tip. I am going to try this.
    The quilt you see, is a part of me.
    In your hand is the sum of my parts
    My mind, my body and a piece of my heart.
    Wrap in it, lay on it, cry, and dream.
    It's made to help you know what love means.

    Enablers. just a bunch of enablers I muttered as I added this quilt to a list that will never be completed in this lifetime.

    Also Acording to the instructions from the web site- only use 5-7 different fabrics so you do not lose or overpower the design. So maybe a jellyroll would not work. IMHO using a jelly roll would make it more like a strip quilt.
