Here are the two I cam home with - the Red one is now on my design wall so I can figure out how I want to finish it, and the Red White and Blue one was made by Harriett. I am going to add some borders to it too....
My plan on this red one is to add a small white border, and a larger blue border.
I have a plan for this one too - but its too early in the morning to think if it will work or not.
And here is how they came together:
Janet made one long long strip, and it got a little turned, so Mary helped her get it straightened,
Charolett working hard on her strips.
Janets strips coming together to a top,
Joan almost finished with hers....
Ethel ironing... she beat me - I was trying to sew the fastest - but alas - I am not quick at all!
Harriett - our fearless leader - she has made a few of these, so she was the teacher. A very good one too I might add.
These were really really fun and everyones will look a little different. We took them home to put some borders on and I will show them to you again when they are all done. Some of the Jelly rolls weren't enough fabric, so a few turned out thinner, but thats alright - it will add to the variety.
For that lady that did this quilt in 35 minutes... I totally respect her. Mine took me the whole 3 hours, and I tried to stay in my chair the WHOLE time. I am not sure I have ever sat that long!!
Now - go check out all the other design walls - I have already been dreaming on the quilts this morning!
