Jelly Roll Race Day!!!

Sharon hosted a "jelly roll race" today at the farm.  There were five of us, but I just went for the fellowship and to sew on my own projects while the rest of them did their jelly rolls.  I did mine a couple weeks prior to Sharon suggesting this and I felt that I didn't "need" another quilt, so I worked on a UFO. 

This is Claudette's (the winner).

I just love her red/white/blue quilt.  She is thinking of adding some borders to make it a little bigger.  

Second place was Sue. She had these beautiful brights. 

Third place was our host, Sharon. 

Love the silhouette!

Then there was Nancy's.   This was a Bunny Hill jelly roll. 

Sharon had music going that made you feel like you wanted to "race", there were prizes for different steps in the race, good food and good conversation.  

You can see my completed one here. 

They all had about an hour head start on me.  I was late because of some family issue this morning, but in comparison, I felt like I got "nothing done".  

I got two and a half done from scratch and the other two were in halves and I sewed them together.  These will go to my Hearts and Hands quilt.  No wonder it is taking me so long to get this one done.  
All-in-all, it was a fun day at Sharon's.  They got quilt tops and I at least got to sew a little on a UFO.  All is good in the world.  


  1. Sounds like a fun day. Nothing like sewing with friends!

  2. Better late than never, My Friend!
    So glad you were there with us!

  3. Better late than never, my friend!
    So glad you were there!

  4. All of those Jelly Roll quilts look wonderful!
    Seeing your Hearts & Hands blocks put a big smile on my face! ;)
    Although slow to work up - they are beautiful. And one day this quilt will be a masterpiece!


I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
