    The pattern is simple but so dramatic. Beautiful and soft.

    It is a soft, old-fashioned look and I really like it. The pillow is absolutely adorable too!

    Beautiful Pam - and fast too! I love the little pillow and your method for the two colour prairie points is a 'must copy'! LOL

    Copy away, I'm sure I'm not the first person to do it. I just didn't have wide enough strips so had to sew two together so why not two colors?

    Bev, it's like the framed 4 patch but it is done in strips. One strip is the 4 patch blocks with a white JR strip between them then the next strip is the squares and rectangles sewn together.

    Love the quilt! Can you tell me what the difference between a jelly roll and a honey bun is? How much do they usually run? I have never bought a bundle of fabric before.

    Thanks
    Anna

    A jelly roll is 2 1/2" wide strips by the width of the fabric (WOF). A honey bun is 1 1/2" wide by WOF.


    A honey bun costs $23 and jelly rolls are $35 at Fat Quarter Shop. You can get them for less like on eBay ranging from $25 to $30 or so for a jellly roll on But It Now. Can bid on them for less. I saw honey buns from $12 to $22.

    I look at a bunch of places online all the time and sometimes you can find really good deals. Fat Quarter Shop has good sales sometimes like a Harmony JR for $21, a Sultry HB for $16, etc.

    I think it's gorgeous! I love jelly rolls--they take half the work out of making a quilt, and there's so many things you can do with them!

    Thanks, Pam. I knew about the Jelly Rolls. But I wasn't aware of the Honey Buns. Sounds like I'll need to buy a couple of HBs for a future Log Cabin quilt. That'll make it soooooo much easier. No cutting, just sew it together.

    You're welcome. It is perfect for a log cabin but I have also made one with a jelly roll. It IS so much quicker!! Especially using this method, no cutting at all other than cutting each block off the strip.

    Your quilt is so pretty- as is your room! Is your whole house decorated that nice? I love it!

    Also, I have seen jelly rolls and the like for pretty cheap on Etsy. I paid $15 for a Moda one once.

    Thank you. :-)

    Several of the rooms in the house are done but not all. I did that room after my daughter moved out. I got the paint for the living room, hallway and stairway but when I put it on the wall it was very yellow. It was supposed to be beige. Decided to use it in that room and what goes with yellow? Black and White. I did the panel moulding myself on all the walls and over a month or two kept my eye out for black and white accessories. Got the chair for $50 and painted it white and re-covered the seat. I made the headboard from scraps of wood and some plywood. Got the tables for $30, the lamps were $10, the artwork is posters and I had gold frames that I painted matte black. The drapes were $18 at Walmart.

    This is the family room and living room. The only other room done upstairs really is my bedroom and it's just a restful beige and white with touches of blue and brown.
