    Flowers for my granddaughter

    I made my own jelly roll using only 5 grey fabrics. I cut them 3 1/2 inches wide. I placed a square of bright fabric between each strip. Then it was sewn together like a jelly roll quilt. I used scraps of fabric from my granddaughter's quilt to make the flower pot, the leaves and the flowers. The border consists of odd sized rectangles sewn together -- again leftovers from her quilt. Just got it back from the quilter a couple weeks ago. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. One of my "visions" actually turned out!

    that's great!!! I love putting applique over the "jelly roll" quilts to give them a bit more definition. Your's turned out fantastic!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Beautiful job and such a great design idea! I love all the ideas people come up with... hopefully one day I will come up with some desing ideas, I mostly follow patterns cause I'm not very artistic.

    What a fabulous way to get random blocks. Love your different tone-on-tone whites too. She will love it.
