Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

Project 3 - Garden Trellis Quilt

Tonight, I find myself with an unexpected spare evening, so I've had a further mooch through the Jelly Roll Quilts book & a riffle through my jelly roll (kindly given to me by big sister Helen for Christmas - which is where we came in).

I've decided that I like this Garden Trellis Quilt most of all, and I plan to start sewing the strips together this evening.

I've even got some rather lovely border fabric all ready from a pair of patterned curtains from the charity shop which I'm hoping will go rather nicely.

Even though the fabrics in the jelly roll are quite similar in tone, I've split the ten different sorts into 'dark' and 'light' and hope that will provide a sufficient contrast.

Well, we'll see...


  1. That's a pretty pattern and so is the fabric. Let's hear it for big sisters. Look forward to seeing your progress.

  2. What a beautiful pattern. I'm looking forward to following you on this one.

  3. Oh.My.Goodness! I turn my back for five minutes and look what you get up to.

    Do you think the Gang of Four will watch quietly or will they be unable to resist .....

  4. Thank you, Joanna - and yes, a cheer for big sister Helen, as she is the one who started all this off!

    Thanks Sue - I'm worried about the lack of contrasts between the strips - it will blend nicely, but will the patten stand out? Part of the fun is finding out!

    Given that I will be wanting to pick the Collective Brain (the instructions in the book are not a patch on Sue's as you might imagine), I should hope that the GoF will definitely not keep themselves to themselves (as if they would!) {gg}
