I needed a quick and satisfying project to get me back in the swing of creating yesterday. I quickly went through my jelly roll drawer, and searched for the fabric that made my heart race the most.
I rewatched Missouri Star Quilt Co.’s YouTube tutorial Jelly roll race and then sat down at my machine and started stitching. It took me more than the hour the video claimed it would take (I’m persnickety), but the basic top is done! Yay! I’m considering adding one border before I sandwich it and quilt it.
I also saw the opportunity to take this finished top and cut it up into a completely different design if I wanted to take it further. I could use my 60 degree equilateral triangle ruler (demonstrated here) or one of Crafty Gemini’s projects using her 10″ slicer ruler found in her YouTube tutorial here. So many ideas!
For now, I’m itching to finish this simple quilt! I’m deciding if I want to do a fun over-all free motion design, or a quick and easy stitch-in-the-ditch with my walking foot.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
