Jellyroll Fun

I had another jellyroll sitting on my shelf and was able to get 2 quilts out of this one. It is not my favorite fabric line but makes a nice quilt for a giveaway. The larger one will go to our local Hospice and the smaller one for the pediatric ward at the hospital.

I was able to use the last on my Laurel Burch cat fabric from a long time ago to brighten up the child's one a bit. It was sort of small so I just added some borders. I LOVE being able to sort of design quilts to get them to the size I want.

This is the E. Burns Twice As Nice pattern which I just love. There is a little left over trimmings that could go into another quilt even smaller.

I just returned from a fabulously successful shopping trip to Joannes. They have my VERY favorite sale. You get 50 per cent off the already reduced fabric. I go for the $3 a yard fabric for quilt backs. I have gotten some really nice fabric at this sale as feel it first and will not buy unless it is a nice quality. This was lots of cute kids prints and as always hard to find boys stuff.
