    The colors are so soothing. The kind of quilt I'd love to wrap up in. Great job!

    Greetings from Idaho. When you made your strips and got to the part where you add a new strip, did you cut them at an angle or stright across. I hope this makes sense. I can't find the information I'm looking for. If you can find me an answer I would really appreciate it.

    It takes real skill to choke on air, fall upstairs and trip over completely nothing .... I have that skill!!!

    My plate may be full, but my cup runneth over with blessings.

    Well, I did it not quite the way they do the jelly roll strips. I actually just sewed the ends of one strip together to the other--not at an angle. Then, I cut the strips approximately the same length and sewed them together. Then, I trimmed after the huge piece was together. Trimming was a pain, though. A big pain.

    Very pretty and as they say practice makes perfect. I have only FMQ'd a couple of quilts myself so I have to do more to get it right

    Love your quilt. I use strips that I cut in different sizes. One row is 1.5 inches wide, another 4 inches, etc. From one inch to six inches wide are my strips. Some quilts are all colors, but I prefer the ones that are color families.....blue, red, black, etc. They make wonderful charity quilts and I love to make them. When I get started, I can't quit. I will finish four or five tops in one night. I make them about 42 inches by 50, 60, or 72 inches long.
