If you’ve ever been to Sample Spree at Quilt Market, you know that all common sense goes out the window when it comes to purchases made. So although I’ve never had a desire to use jelly rolls, it’s no surprise I picked up my first jelly rolls at sample spree this year. All those colors packaged so cutely together really caught my eye and it turns out they are a lot of fun to play with!
My first projects were with the Lecien strips. Some careful patchwork applique, some quilting, and lots of sewing later and I have some cushions.
I really love how they turned out. The precut strips made it easy to pair fabrics.
Some zigzag stitching made for some fun quilting.
Remember the rubber stamps I had made? I used the same “hello” that I had written for the stamps and enlarged them for the cushions. I always like when a project is personal from start to finish.
Just a couple of days until Christmas. I still have a couple of small things I’d like to make for family when we see them next week.
Until then, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
