    The 'Is this OK' Quilt finished

    Last night I finished the JellyRollRace quilt, now it's in the washing machine. Next week I'll give it to the Day Care Centre, together with two other quilts I made. My Bernina has a lot of built-in stitches so I used those for the quilting and the border.

    Lovely.
    I really love these quilts, and they are very, very popular with recipients

    Thank you Jennja! This was the first time I made a strip quilt and I think I will make some more. It was so much fun and I like the result.

    It turned out great. Did you cut your own strips?

    I love the color of the binding - it really sets off the strips. Good job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    With results as fabulous as this, you should start making these by the dozen! This is fabulous & you're so sweet to donate it!

    Hi Wendiq! Nice to "see" you again!

    Anael, the finished project is lovely! The colors are so bright. On the horizontal curvey stitch what settings did you use? This is a great stitch to replace a SID and you don't have to be so careful about keeping it in the ditch! I use this all the time in my little pieces at a 2 width and length, but like the longer curve you have done here. G

    Don't worry spider.
