Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall

Friday night I started working on this Jelly Roll quilt.  I ‘cheated’ and didn’t do the bias joins, but I think it still looks good.  The finished size was a bit odd, so when I got home I dug through my Kansas Troubles Quilters box and found enough fabric to add six rows to the quilt and the “borders”.  I think it now measures 57 x 76 — still a bit narrow, but I’m over it.  I even found fabric to match for the binding when I get it quilted!

I’ve been trying to clean up the sewing room — yesterday I dug through all of my quilt tops and sorted them into two stacks — those with backings (or fabric for the backing) and those without.    I was surprised to find that I have the backing fabric for nearly 2/3 of the quilt tops.     Those quilt tops and backing fabric went in the box under the shelves.  The box on the top shelf contains quilt tops which still need backings — well maybe one or two tops with backings made it in there since it’s the larger box.  Sitting on my ironing board are five quilt tops and backings.  Hum… I wonder if that means I think I’m going to work on them.

This week I want to finish the quilting and binding on my Texas Braid.  I need to quilt 28 rows across the width of the quilt — so 6 rows for 5 nights and I’ll be done by Friday night — giving me the weekend to get it bound.

Stay tuned to see if I get it done.  Any check out the link s at Patchwork Times to see what others are working on.

4 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. I have decided I really like the strip quilts. I am just about finished with one from brights and white. I have a Kaffe Fasset jelly roll and think I will make another one from it. Thanks for sharing.

    I like your blog, lots of quilty things to look at. Thanks for leaving a comment on mine so that I could find you.

  3. Those are such pretty and restful colors. Very nice.

  4. I like the jelly roll race quilts with straight seams. I did one and put borders on it just so it would be wider. I am thinking about doing another with b/w strips with an occasional b/w/y to add interest. These make great charity quilts.
