2 done

This week I have focused on finishing donation quilts for my guild (Triad Modern Quilt Guild).

This small one is made of 9-patches from our guild stash. I backed it with a piece of green fleece from friend and guild-mate Colleen. This is a very simple quilt, I sewed the fleece to the top (right-sides-together) then turned it, closed the opening, and using my walking foot, finished it with straight line quilting.

This next quilt I made using the "jelly roll race" method. I cut 2 1/2" strips from a set of FQs from friend and guild-mate Sarah, then stitched them end-to-end, folding and stitching til it was quilt-shaped. I FMQed it in alternating blocks of straight lines.

I didn't like how it looked when I finished, but I do like the effect I see in the pictures.
53" by 56"

I backed it with scraps from my personal stash.

Looks great Kelly! I finished my other one too! We really will have a pile of quilts for SCAN!

Great looking quilts! Love the effect on the jelly roll style quilt =D

Hmmm, I have a top ready for SCAN - thanks for reminding me! I don't really get the jelly roll race. I'll have to Google that!
