    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!!!

    Haven't seen it! My LQS doesn't have a huge selection of fabric, , but do carry some Moda. I plan to go there next week to look for backing.

    I just found 2 or 3 jelly roll quilt books at my library. I look at them and dream of all the things I want to make.

    This is super easy. Hardest part is making sure you don't get the strips tangled up so you have a knot at the end. Once you get the strips sewn together like a big binding, it goes pretty quickly. I am making another one using the same fabric line. Can't wait to see how different they look.

    I love it! I have a jelly roll that I bought just for that purpose, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Yours looks great.

    I Love it! I made my first ever table runner last week and it is in the same colors, but I didn't use a jelly roll. I am new to quilting and it is only the second thing I have done. I need to expand and try the jelly rolls. I have not seen them in the stores I have been in, I have got to find a local quilting shop. There is only one I know of in town and I need to stop in there.

    How fun! Looks like your quilt inspector likes it, too!
