Twelve blocks finished….

Over the last few weeks, I have been working on a Jelly Roll Sampler.  Many of you may have seen various books that show how to use pre-cut fabrics to make different quilts.  I have been using one type of these books by Pam and Nancy Lintott’s Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt.  I used the Classic Sampler and made 12 beautiful blocks. This is my first time of really doing a traditional type of block design.  It was made easy by using a Creative Grid 45/90 degree ruler which helped to make the triangles.  Most of the pattern involve using either squares, rectangles or triangles.  I’m very happy with the final result.  I used the Moda range by Basic Grey called Persimmon.  I just now need to the boarder and sashing which I have already gotten with lime for the boarder and white for the sashing.  It should look good when finished.

On another note, my poor puppy has to have surgery on her knees and need to stay at the vets overnight.  As I know she will be anxious without me, I have made her a little quilt out of squares that were mistakes.  I must admit, both my dogs love lying on the quilts I make and have a particular liking for the ones with the French General fabric.  I have trialled the squares and believe it is big enough for her.  My youngest daughter decided that a blanket was need to be placed on top of the other squares…Can you spot the dog?
