A Finish and A New Beginning!

After 3 solid days (and nights) of quilting, I have finally finished the Jelly Roll Quilt I started earlier in the year!Stippling the background and borders took forever but Im really pleased with the end result!! Im sure it will be one of those quilts that will be dragged all over the house. Just this morning I walked into the lounge and Cohen was snuggled up on the couch beneath it!!

So after a finish, you gotta start something new, right?? So I have gathered all my bits and pieces for a new design that Ive wanted to work on for awhile now:

Looks interested!! The fabrics are from Henry Glass Fabrics..... Jane Shasky:Dreaming of Roses.

Well off to have fun and create!!

The Jelly Roll quilt turned out great, sweetie!!! Love the stippling in the background squares, and the lines in the rails and 9patches looks great! And love the scrappy border (what I can see of it in the pic *lol*). A job very well done!

Love the fabrics and the embelishments for your next project! Looks so soft and romantic. It is going to be a fabulous ... ! ;o)

Take care and have a great evening! Hugs...

Congratulations on finishing your quilt.

You mean you are supposed to finish one before you start another?

Well, why didn't anyone tell me this??? :P

The finish looks absolutely wonderful. The start looks very intriguing with those embellishments.

Congratulations on a job well done! I'm so jealous of you all that have the attention span to finish one thing at a time. Maybe that's why you do such a great job! Love the redwork pics, too.

Can't wait to see what the new project will be :-)

Wow - looks fantastic. I do so admire your stipple quilting - a skill I am yet to acquire. Looking forward to seeing what you do with your new bits and pieces - something gorgeous no doubt. Take care.

That's a great quilt, and obviously a hit with Cohen! It's so nice to think of him growing up with comfortable things like that. =)

Your collection of goodies looks like a nice start for a cq block. =)
