friday finish







































A quick post to show a couple of fun quilts using "the jelly roll race technique".
I had some 2.5" strings that had been stashed for a while.






































This first one ended up 31" * 37", using a remnant piece of Quilters Dream Request.



















This second one ended up 31" * 41", using leftover Hobbs Thermore batting. It's backed with a flannel piece, soft and cosy. I think you can google "jelly roll race" to find instructions on how to. Quite fun and easy piecing. Great idea for leftover 2.5" strings!






































Still is quite cold and wintery for being the south west coast of Norway.
Happy to have turned stash into some quilt for kids. A few more simple checked tops are waiting for suitable pieces of batting. So it's time to tackle some bigger tops...

















Wish you a great weekend. Stay warm!

That's a great way to use leftover fabric! And who doesn't have a lot of that ;-)
Have a great weekend,

Love your strippie quilts - the orientation of the strips, and the blank spaces. Very creative!

Just what some poor child needs in the thick of winter.
