All that to say this, when I'm into something there's no half way about it. I am fully committed. Anything worth doing, is worth doing right. So here I sit gazing at my newly acquired Jelly Roll.
I had initially wanted one of these to sew this project,
which looks like a fun but it only produces a small quilt. With its $39 price tag, my jelly roll is too precious for that use. I need a quilt large enough to fit a twin bed. Change of plans. I'll use the roll to make quilt blocks and then add sashing and borders to make my quilt the desired dimensions. I am thinking of using one of these patterns, Trade Winds or Boxy Stars. It would be easy to find some smallish prints for the frames and borders that would not detract from the larger Moda prints of the roll. I think I'll use the blues and greens shown here, to tie it all together.
