I have mainly been cleaning this week getting our house ready to sell in February. I am pretty exhausted since the house has not been cleaned this well for a while. I guess I would rather quilt!
I have been taking some breaks from the cleaning to work on a jelly roll kit for a lap sized quilt. The strips are very colorful gradated fabrics. I have never made a jelly roll quilt before and it was nice having the strips cut out already. One issue I had with it is that the edges of the strips are pinked and I have a hard time judging the seam allowance. I would prefer a straight edge cut. I am not sure what is the norm since I have never bought a jelly roll before.
This is all I have to show:
Long dark strips run between the rows of blocks. You see them as white right now. It is weird working from a kit after the master class last year. Somehow I feel like I am cheating….
I will have to postpone Weather Monday on the 19th since I will be away visiting my dad.

Thanks for reading….back to cleaning.
