Friday Finish: Jelly Roll Party Day

I really missed hosting Jelly Roll Party at Ruth's Stitchery last month. But spending the time with My Little Sailor made it worth missins!

Today's Jelly Roll quilt is Parallel Universe from Cozy Quilts.

My version is made with "Elementary" from Sweetwater. Two of my favorites -- pattern designer and fabric designers -- in one quilt!

This is a super-quick sew using the Strip Tube ruler, also from Cozy Quilts. Go to the link for a demo on using this clever tool. It makes sewing HSTs from strips a breeze!

Enough tease. Here is the finished quilt:

Today is the day partiers vote on the strip quilts they want to make next year. Do you have a favorite strip/jelly roll quilt? Share in the comments, please!

  1. I love just about any strip quilt from Kim Brakett's Scrap Basket Quilt books! I've got a few jelly rolls ready to go and haven't made a single one of them!

  2. That looks great. I love that fabric line.

  3. What a great pattern for jell rolls! I hand-dyed some strips earlier this year with hollyhocks from my garden, and I've been trying to figure out what to do with them. This is inspiring!

  4. Amazing what you can do with simple the colours.

  5. Too cute! I went in to Ruths last month - what a great shop!!
