This is my first "jelly roll race" quilt. Jelly rolls contain an entire fabric line all cut in 2 1/2 inch strips and rolled up nice and neat. This one is made from the 2wenty thr3e collection by Eric and Julie Comstock.
First you sew each strip together on the short side so you have one 2 1/2 inch x 1600 inch strip of fabric! Then you match the ends and start sewing it together down the looong edge. When you reach the end you cut it and do it again. There is a very cute video/tutorial of it here.
The back is made of bigger pieces from the same collection. I quilted this with meandering rectangles. I really love how crinkly and soft it gets after washing.
This is my first attempt at using my sewing machine for the binding. I used the blanket stitch. There is room for improvement here but it's not too bad. It will be lots stronger than hand stitching.
I met a very sweet (and fearless!) girl last summer. K8, this one's 4U!
