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 - Top Finished!

And I am now faced with the trickiest decision of them all - how am I going to quilt this?


  1. That is beautiful. As for the quilting, I would say to keep it simple as the pattern itself is quite busy. Something curvy, like a simple daisy-type motif in each block would be good, or a loopy all over meander?

  2. It looks amazing Hazel! I agree simple quilting will be the best, do a couple of practice sandwiches and then just go for it. It's the only way to improve your quilting. I like to use the Golden Threads quilting paper so I have a pattern to follow, but if you can get the hang of free machine quilting without a guide, it's very liberating. I've got a couple of videos you could borrow, but YouTube is also a great place to find inspiration. Good luck!

  3. I've taken your comments to heart, girls, and come up with a flower template for the centre of each block.

    Better go and have a look on YouTube to make sure I've got the right idea before blundering on!
