another jelly roll 1600 ideaAugust 29, 2014
Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
Want to see some extraordinary quilts up close? At this site (click here) you can zoom in close for a good look at some spectacular quilting and applique. I don’t see myself ever making a quilt of this caliber, but I do get some inspiration from the quilting. When working on my free motion skills, I have a few patterns that I fall back on again and again, and it’s nice to find some new ones to try. I’m sure those of you who applique will find the designs on the applique quilts amazing as well.
What are you working on these days? Remember the Lucy Goosey quilt along that I had on the blog a while back? I’m making another block so I can set the blocks on point, and then I’ll be finishing the top up. I am making an effort to get the many UFO’s off the bed in the guest room. So far this summer I have made some slight progress. The quilt which is the topper for the bed is beginning to peak out here and there-an incentive for me to keep at it!

P.S. Don’t forget the work session at the BNHV tomorrow to prepare kits for our seminar favors. 10:30 in the Steffan room. We will have all necessary supplies; just bring yourself and perhaps some 2 1/2″ x WOF strips to donate to the cause.
