Boxed Squares

This is an awful photo but I’m showing it anyway. I finished these blocks before going to Virginia from a Jelly Roll that Deb gave me for my birthday in June. Now the top is finished and it will go on the shelf while I catch up on some of my other quilting.

For those of you wondering, I got 40 blocks from the one Jelly Roll and the quilt is 48 x 60. I considered adding a border but with the fabrics being SO coordinated I don’t really have something in my stash that would work well. This is a very *warm* looking quilt so I’ll back it in flannel and it will make a nice lap size quilt.

Even though the fabric was a gift, it will be donated. I know Deb won’t mind – she knows that most of my quilts are donated. It will probably go for the Angle Tree at my Mom’s church next Christmas. She usually pulls the names of a couple senior citizens and I give her quilts or afghans to add to the present. This year we worked together on piecing two tops and I backed them in flannel and quilted them.

    Beautiful quilt. It is definately on my list to make at least 2 quilt tops to be donated this year. I really appreciate the inspiration that you provide.

    Nice size from a Jelly Roll. I have several Jelly Rolls sitting here begging to be untied and used up but they will have to wait until I get the Make Over done in My Creative Mind (aka, my sewing room). Fun pattern with fun prints.
