I dug this project out of my cupboard a few days ago and it's now a completed quilt top. The fabric is half a Riley Blake jelly roll paired with some cream fabric from my stash. The jelly roll was a prize from Riley Blake and when it arrived it was as Jenny quite rightly said "Cor blimey". That being said this is the second small quilt made from the jelly roll and as the fabric doesn't have a lot of cream in it, it works very well. I used the Lazy Angle ruler and book from Creative Grids and I was inspired by Jaybird's Hugs and Kisses quilt. As the fabric is busy, it allowed me not to anguish over the block placement and which is very liberating and a time saver.
My plan is to attempt to do some feathers on my long arm, but I have two customer quilts to finish first. I also need to shop my stash for a backing and binding. I found some plain fabric in the storage area yesterday which I'd forgotten about which could be dyed. Perhaps I should have a go at a purple backing this time. I think I need to finish my Bee in my Bonnet row along next.
