    I found this pattern on Moda Bake Shop. I used a Simplicity jelly roll I'd had for awhile. Had to change the dimensions a little, but it worked out OK. This one will go in my sewing room, where I've used Simplicity fabrics on the window curtain and on a wallhanging.

    Thats so pretty - a good job well done.
    How many JR's did it take oh yes & BTW what size did it turn out.

    Ideal colours for a girly. :wink: Pass it over this way please :lol:

    Did that take only one jelly roll? How was it piecing it together? I bought 2 Sultry (Moda) jelly rolls to make that same quilt. I just love the way it looks. You did a wonderful job on it.

    I'm with you on this one. Anything angled or braided just wants to stump me.

    Here's the link for the pattern:

    http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/01/...ect-sheet.html

    It was really very easy to make. Don't be afraid to try it! I wound up taking one row off the width because it made the proportion strange. It's almost perfectly square, a lap size, I think. I think I probably should have trimmed each row to be narrower, but I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I used just one jelly roll and supplemented with just a couple fabrics of my own (like the border fabrics).

    Thanks for all your comments. There were times I was ready to just put this one in the WIP drawer and forget about it. If I can do it, ANYBODY can!

    For Melissa, here are some pics of the curtain and the wallhanging in my sewing room. Sorry, the window pic came out kind of dark!
