    Second Jelly Roll Race Finished

    This is the second of three Jelly Roll Race quilts that I made for 2 nieces and 1 nephew. I finished stitching the binding on today. While quilting it, I found some small splits in some seams so I'll be adding a couple appliqué shapes to cover them. My niece likes elephants, so I think that's what I'll do. I also have to stitch the label but I was so excited that I finished binding it that I had to share. I also attached a photo of the thread spool I was using to stitch the binding on. Talk about barely having enough! Thank you for looking.

    Wonderful quilt! Don't you love it when the stars align and you end up on the positive side of thread ending?

    Boo boos covered

    Thank you all so very much for your kind words. I covered the boo booed seams with some appliqué. I'm sure my 10 year old niece won't mind.

    Looks very nice!
