We met at about 9:30 but didn't actually start the race until noon. The first quilt was done in about an hour and thirty minutes. Here are some photos of our day:
|Jan's stack ready to go!|
|Ladies...start your engines!|
|Terry ~ And we're off!|
|Terry's first jelly roll 1600 (race) quilt|
|Pat's ~ done from her scrap bag for a totally different look|
|Terry's second one. Different width strips creates a vertical quilt|
|Muriel's and Jan's - same jelly roll pack but they turned out different.|
So that my friends is a jelly roll race.
I also managed to finish the Irish Chain quilt top that I bought at the garage sale last weekend.
|So happy to have a nice complementary green and pinky creamy fabric for the borders.|
I put the backing together. The quilt will finish at about 83 1/2" wide x 90 " long. It's hanging on the clothesline tonight to hopefully get some wrinkles out naturally. I'm hoping to sandwich and start quilting it tomorrow. We'll see!
Until next time!
