Jelly Roll Race Finished Quilt
Back in December my Mother-in-Law, Sister-in-Law and I were up sewing late one weekend night as we tried to finish some Christmas quilts, when we decided we should do a Jelly Roll Race Challenge. If you have never heard of the Jelly Roll Race Challenge, it is rather simple. We found this tutorial online. It seemed easy enough and so we started and 2 hours later (we are beginners and it was late so we didn’t finish in an hour like the tutorial states) . We each finished our quilt tops and I am proud to say, I won, but only by about five minutes. My Mother-in-Law has said a rematch is already in the works, so watch for the next challenge.
My fabric was a mixed blue solid jelly roll from Joanns. I also backed the quilt with a piece of scrap minky fabric form Joanns and bound it with some dark blue flannel from my scrap pile. I used the Stitch Regulator (BSR) foot for my Bernina 710 and did my first stippling pattern. I really like free motion quilting and can’t wait to do more on this incredible machine.
I will throw this quilt up in the new Sewing Room so the dogs have something new to cuddle on when I sew late into the night since they have already laid claim to this quilt.
This was a very quick and easy quilt. I am sure I will do this quilt pattern again, especially if I need a quick baby quilt and only have a few hours to pull something together. Next time, I will mix up the strips of fabric before I start the quilt to get even more of a random appearance.
