    Well I've just put the binding on my latest quilt! Malc bought me the jelly roll on holiday so I've made a little quilt for me, to keep the cold out while I'm watching TV. I'm so sick of the price of gas going up that I decided that instead of keeping the heating on, we'll have warm quilts and an extra sweater on this year. lol! (and maybe a tot of whisky) I shall probably be alcoholic by New Years Eve ! lol!

    Thanks girls....Izy it 's a really easy one to follow (it would have to be for me!) But its made easier because the jelly rolls are all the same width so you've only got one cut to make, and thats across the strip.

    What sweet, soft colors! I'm sure it (and maybe a drop of the whiskey) will keep you warm and happy!

    So pretty, what did you use for the batting? I just love how puffy it is.

    I just used some light weight wadding Elizabeth. I usually just back them with fleece (no wadding) but this time I wanted a bit of extra warmth. Seems like the older I get the more I feel the cold!

    Oooh nice Karenmay! The braid is also on my 'list' for one-of-these-days. I love the way you quilted it too, it added another geometrical dimension (hmmm, my day for big words?) to the quilt. I bet that & the tot will keep you toasty this winter! :wink: :D:D:D

    Great use of a jelly roll! I'll bet it went together pretty quickly! Love the pattern, love the fabrics--I can just picture you sitting there cuddled up in your quilt with a whiskey, watching the telly!

    OH Karen what a warm and toasty quilt. You will surely save heating prices when you wrap up with it.

    Oh Karen, i just love your jelly roll quilt!!! I am sooo going to have to try a french braid :) :) :)

    hmmm, did you do it on foundation fabric, or just wing it? lol Are your strips the same length on each side of your braid, i guess they would be...hmmm, what length strips did you use Karen? It looks so nice :)
