....mini - ized! Instead of using 40+ strips at 2 1/2" by 40", I used 52 strips at 3/4" by 5". I used 26 different black and white fabrics (can you believe that I had that many different ones?) and a FQ of orange that was a gift from one of my DQ partners. The second border is grey, the binding is pure black.

This was inspired by this month's DQ swap challenge: black and white with a POP of another color.

This finished at 10 1/2" by 13".

Are some of the seams a little wonky? Yes!

Great quilt!! Wow -- 3/4" strips!! I don't think I could see what I was doing making 1/4" seams.

Did you do standard 1/4" or did you make the seams smaller?

Zhillslady 09-14-2011 06:00 AM

Very pretty

Another beauty by Leslie! I love the pops of orange. This is the 2nd jelly roll quilt I seen with them in as many days. Must be going round. But with yours being in miniature it is much more intriguing!

I do bend over to the machine quite a bit! But that means I have to take off my trifocals to see what I'm doing....

I try to do scant 1/4" seams, but as the already sewn seam allowances pile up on the back, sometimes it gets difficult, and the seams get smaller.

Love the colors! Great looking quilt!

I love it!! Beautiful job. Oh your pieces are getting smaller. Are you keeping this one? Like LoriEl says, it is a great Halloween quilt. G

Greenheron 09-14-2011 03:50 PM

Jazzy!

I'm glad you like it! I was hoping you would see it.

Yes, I think I will keep this one. I have a plan for doing another one. I think the strips need to be a little shorter, and I don't think that I need so many strips, but I'll see.

wartime jane 09-14-2011 08:57 PM

Cool! Love the fabrics.

Jammin' Jane 09-14-2011 09:00 PM

I did a little cropping of your photo and think maybe 25 strips would be about right--an odd number. I didn't try to make them shorter.
I've found when downsizing patterns you loose proportion. It doesn't make sense that you would loose proportion because you have mathmatically adjusted everything. It's a visual thing.

I like it too. Very graphic and striking.

jillnjo 09-15-2011 05:12 PM

I like your idea of a mini jelly roll-that's just what it is! It has a lot of pop!

Orange Crush don't you think?

I am sort of fond of BWO quilts. This one is really sweet!
I am going to make more out of this threesome.
peace

I love it! Those are some skinny strips, but the effect is worth it. I really like the way the orange squares seem to dance across the top. Looks like you really stepped up and met the challenge!

Thanks, this means a lot to me, as I always admire the wonderful work that you do! Yes, the squares do dance!
