    Well, I have to wait to find a good border fabric for my first quilt, and I just felt like I HAD to sew something - so I started on my jelly roll quilt. The pic below has 6 out of the 10 patterns that came with my jelly roll - so I still have 4 patterns left to mess around with.

    I don't know if this is going to end up being way too busy or if it'll come out alright, but right now I really love it. Also, everything still needs squared up, but I just wanted to show you guys the colors. I'm planning on doing a really simple, plain border so as not to give people a heart attack when they look at it. :P

    Love it. That's what I like about jelly rolls. The fabric choosing has already been made for you, so when you put them together you can't be wrong. I always have trouble deciding what looks best together. You see, I am an apparel sewer from the time I was 5. We have trouble thinking in the abstract. Everything has to match.

    I used these same fabrics in a tube quilt. I love using Chenille fabric for borders and backing. I don't usually put batting in as it is warm enough as is. Make sure you use your coupons for the chenille and prewash it. I like 6 inch borders.

    That's the nature of jellyroll quilts. You have several patterns, but only three colors. That's great.

    Oh my goodness, your quilt is gorgeous! I love what you did with the jelly roll fabrics. I was too chicken to go much outside my very small box of experience, lol. One of these days I'd like to try something as lovely as that.

    Thanks to all for the kind words and encouragement. :D
