Jelly Roll Twist Strip Birthday Quilt
 So went from top to finished quilt! Can read about that here and link to pattern.
 Was dragging on the grass a bit! Big enough to wrap our gal up in fabric love goodness!
You can see the squares in this picture.
Here is the backing so you can see the quilting a bit better. This came from Connecting Threads a couple years back when they had a backing fabric sale. Matched perfectly! Glad to have it done and ready to gift!

This weekend I worked on some pretty totes. Cut another one out today. More on those later.
Now I really must get busy sewing up lots of baby things for our grandson's baby boy, Hunter, due Aug 4th!!
We also celebrate Olivia's 1st birthday on July 2nd!  Her projects have to be ready for her big day!
Lordy this sewing Granny needs to get a wiggle on!!

We have definitely entered summer here. Maybe not officially but temp wise for sure! Had to put AC on. Just could not stand it any longer.
Rain has slacked off too which means we have to water our flowers and garden stuff in the pots and hanging baskets from our well. Hope we get some rain this week.

Had some pc troubles too. DH got all my mess backed up just in case. He also did some clean up and other stuff I do not understand but now pc be zooming along nicely again.  ZIP ZIP instead of slow slow!

Reckon I best get up at at it! Nothing will get done me sitting here!


  1. looks beautiful, funny I said to my self I think I am working with the same fabric and it is also a Jelly roll! I went to the link where you posted the name of the fabric and it is the same fabric! Such a wonderful gift.

  2. Your jelly roll strip quilt is really pretty, love the fabrics.

    Your granny sewing sounds like lots of fun. I'm sure you are creating some wonderful treasures.

  3. Such a gorgeous bright happy quilt. I love Jelly Rolls!
    WOW Oliva 1 already... Yes granny you had better get sewing for her and the new babe.
    I need a savvy techno in my house as my PC is also very slow....

  4. OOOOOH! It turned out pretty! You are being such a good girl! AC was broken at work yesterday and B has a toothache. Really glad it is Tuesday. Hope mechanics and dentists are working hard this morning!
