Friday Finish

This Jelly Roll Party quilt was a big hit with Ruth's Stitchery customers. Five "jelly rollers" made their quilt with the same fabrics as the sample!

The fabrics are "Cold Spell" by Laundry Basket Quilts. I love this collection particularly, because it has both batiks and cottons. For years, we quilters thought we shouldn't mix cottons and batiks. Edyta Sitar proved that rule to be wrong wrong wrong!

The pattern is "Winter Solstice" from Cozy Quilts. The only change I made to the pattern was using my favorite "Corner Clipper" ruler rather than sew and flip triangles for the star points.

Oh -- and the white "patches" in the border are class information signs for the shop!

Big snow predicted for Colorado this weekend. It's a "sew-day!"

  1. Beautiful quilt. Enjoy your "sew day'. I'm still waiting for one this year in southeast Michigan. We've had very little so far.

  2. Love it! Monochromatic quilts can be so stunning and you really knocked this one out of the ball park.

  3. We never get snow days here, so hope you enjoy your sew-day! Lovely blue quilt too, very appropriate for a snow day!
