    Playing with a jelly roll...

    Well, I just abandoned a pattern I thought I wanted to do with a jelly roll, and I have laid this out. What do you think? Does this look okay, or is it too bright? I already had the 8 1/2 inch blocks sewn together, each with four strips. I stared at the pattern I thought I wanted for two weeks, but I just couldn't get interested in it. I guess I will leave this up a few days and stare at it.

    I had the same jelly roll - it made a great Trip Around the World Quilt - I like your rail fence quilt. Very nice.

    Looks nice. The green really pops. Rail fence is one of my favorite patterns.

    I think it turned out great, love the bright green throughout. Another great pattern for using a jelly roll.

    love your rail fence
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    It is amazing I love h rail fence. I am surprised at the colours . When I have a jelly roll only have 2 stripes of each pattern/colour and could not make this.
    If you donot like it when it is finished will look great in my kitchen

    Don't abandon it, just fly with it, like cut the 8 1/2 " squares at a diagonal and fracture them and resew together . If you are an abstract type of artist , you could get funky with them. Maybe even create something new out of a classic rail fence block. I do this sometimes when I'm not excited about a look.

    I really like what you've done; not too bright at all.

    Yes, it is one jelly roll. I have never bought one before, so I don't know if they come in more than one size. I got it at Tuesday Morning, for a pretty good price. I still have 16 pieces left. I haven't sewn these together yet, but right now it is 50x60.

    Thanks everyone, for your encouraging words. I had started off to make the 3 dudes jelly roll that Missouri Star Quilt has a video on, and I could still do that, but I think this works better for me. I'm not sure why. I think I have fabric that I will like better in the 3 dudes jelly roll.

    Well, the colors go well together, the quilt has a lot of "movement", the fabric is fun.... what is there NOT to like? And for the record, my second son loves that chartruse green and his wife thinks he is very masculine. So, I advise you to make it and NOT show it to my son! But if whoever you give it to doesn't want it, I'll help you out......

    I think it is great! Love the colors and I'm always drawn to the movement in a rail fence quilt. I say sew on...
