    Hi Loretta, and welcome to the Board. This is a great place to hang out!!

    I like your quilts very much. The top one does appear to have a couple of pieces turned differently than the pattern, but I think it still looks OK. If you didnt' know it, I don't think it would be noticeable!!

    It's a good idea to lay out your blocks or pieces , stand back and look before sewing together. It's really easy to get confused when placing sections. I know!! I do like the fabric you used, and I think your piecing looks fine.

    I don't see anything wrong with the jelly roll one. In fact I have jelly rolls and thought you had a good idea I should try
