....Jelly Roll strippin', that is! Had you going though, didn't I??? I have been pretty obsessed lately with the Moda jelly rolls, I guess because I like that convenience of the precut strips and I like the coordination of a designer's line all rolled up into one neat bundle. I have to confess though, I did have to add in that darker horizontal fabric piece (a Thimbleberries print) because none of the Madeira line was as dark as I wanted. These little rail fence blocks go together so-o-o fast. I popped them up on the design wall this morning (too snowy here in KC to do anything else, I tell ya!) and will rearrange them several times, I'm sure. I was hoping for more of the dusty teal dominance than I got so I may make a few more to substitute out. But it is a start!
Now the big question...what to do about borders? I love the very folk arty look of the borders on this Kim Diehl quilt in Simple Seasons and may try to come up with something similar. Maybe changing out those corner squares with something more in keeping with the Madeira fabric flowers.
The city was hit again--big time--with snow. Most of the major school districts cancelled classes today. Yesterday we had rain all day, with a little thunder thrown in for good measure. Screwiest weather ever. I am so-o-o ready for Spring!
