    So, I just had to use up the other jelly roll of Nature's Chorus and the other half of the Moda Sugar jelly roll. This is from the same book, Jelly Roll Quilts. Very simple and quick, took 3 days to do. I haven't decided on borders yet but I have a lot of small off-cuts of the white and some of the large border. Thinking of cutting the border into squares and just doing a checkerboard with the solid white.

    I used two strips sewn together to make the continuous prairie points for the pillow. I have more since it's a WOF strip so I'll make another pillow to use it on when I think of a different design.

    It has a soft, old-fashioned look to me though the colors are brighter.

    Pam

    It's super I love the colours too - I am leaning more & more towards pink these days it must be an age thing LOL.
    I have 2 JR's that are the same design I want to use to make a quilt with I may have to see if I can get my hands on this book.

    Very neat and crisp. Love the pillow cover.

    I have to ask, do you quilt them by hand or machine? You make so many so quickly!

    Very pretty, Pam! It has such a warm, comfortable look to it, doesn't it? How many JR's did you need for the quilt?

    Thanks all. It's a simple little quilt but it's cheery. It's small enough to curl up with and not so much work that you don't want it dragged around by the grandkids.

    I quilt by hand but, since my frame is taken up with a big log cabin right now, none of them are getting quilted. I will get these last ones done by a LAQ. I got a book on machine quilting so I'll see how I like it but it's going to be awhile before I attempt it on an actual quilt.

    The last two are simple JR quilts that can be done in a couple of days. Kind of like a quilt in a weekend with jelly rolls. :wink:

    I don't have any plans to give it away and didn't make it for anyone specifically. These quilts that I am making that I don't have a recipient in mind I am thinking of making a muslin bag for each one, like a pillow case, to store them. I have a whole bunch of unbleached muslin.

    There is a small dresser at my parents' house that I will be picking up that I can store them in. I don't think the quilts should be against wood so maybe I can line all sides of the drawers.

    It calls for one JR plus the background fabric. I used part of a JR of Moda Sugar for that. The only cutting is cutting the strips to length.

    It's from the book Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott. The pattern is called Blue Lagoon since the one in the book is all in blue.

    I like making the pillows, that's something I've done for years when I decorate. They can be soooo expensive to buy designer ones. I have lots of forms in different sizes and shapes so when I re-decorate I just recover them.

    It's fun to try different things on something small and quick, I'm all about quick :P

    Don't know if I am the first to do it. I did that because it's jelly roll strips and one strip isn't wide enough so I thought... sew two together the same way that you would fold a whole piece in half.

    I sewed them right sides together with a 1/4 seam allowance and ironed them flat. Because of the 1/4 inch seam I cut the sections at 2 1/4" wide instead of the full jelly roll width of 2 1/2". I realized after I did it and I had another two strips sewn together for something else that I should have folded the points on the outside, not the inside of the seam. Would have been a lot easier instead of trying to get the fold nestled up to the seam.

    And after going through sewing them to the piece I thought that doing a 1/8" seam on the strips and cutting the sections at 2 3/8" would be better. That leaves a little bit move room to fold the point down into the seam allowance.
