After carefully measuring my sewing machine needle to sew at the 1/4" mark I jumped into the world of Quilts. This is my 1st one made using Eleanor Burns "Braid in a Day" It took me a week, but it's lovely.
So that's all wrapped up and ready to go with a plate of cookies :-)
Then... Jelly Roll time. I sorted the colors included in this pack called "Bold and Beautiful". I set aside the light colors for 1 lap quilt, and all the darker colors for another... One for a Boy, One for a Girl -- Isn't it cute how they turned out? Both below Quilts were donated to Quilts4Kids. I have bought 2 more packages of this Fabrics to make more Quilts4Kids. The colors are so lovely, and I'll learn how to take better photo's
I bought some Jelly Rolls with cute stripes on them and 1 of a black on black that told me it would be made to look like a Bookcase! This was so easy to design and create I shared this easy pattern on Craftsy for FREE! Here is is without Borders sitting on a Queen spare bed. With borders it can easily get extended out for hangover and tuck on a Queen bed or added two larger borders for a King Size. I have my selvedge line scraps so little book titles Could be sewn on but not by me, not this time hahaha
