    Another quickie quilt-top, and a fun challenge....

    So last weekend while I was trying to decide how to quilt the bargello quilt, I decided to make a jelly roll 1600, with a twist. I cut each strip in two so I had 84 strips instead of 42. Each strip was approx.21" long. Here is the result, and I think it is very cute, mixes the colors up a little more than the usual jelly roll 1600. Now here is my fun challenge....I would like you guys and gals to come up with something different to do with a jelly roll. Many of you were surprised that the "Fresh Fruit Parfait" quilt was a jelly roll. So I want you to find a fun pattern somewhere and mix it up a little. Now this can be your own idea or a take on some pattern you have seen somewhere. The idea is to have some fun. Many of us are in that "Winter Funk" and need an awakening. Here is your chance. Okay, now here is what I did:Name:  P1010025(1).JPG

    OH! Goody Goody!!! I know YOU love challenges. Now we need some more people joining in. This is just for fun and no deadlines or rules. It can be to use up some colors you wouldn't ordinarily use, or anything. My jelly roll was one I have had for several years and wanted to use it up somehow. The bargello was to try a technique I was terribly afraid of. So let's go!!!! And let's see pics of everyone's progress.

    That is awesome. Much prettier than a normal strip quilt.

    I like the way your sewed them on the diagonal. It gives it depth. So simple and so pretty. Nice one.

    Yes, isn't it interesting how it gives it a totally different look. I will probably make more of these in other colors too. It went pretty fast too.
