I didn't follow the layer cake layout instructions. I used the jelly roll layout instructions. I perused the jelly roll flickr page and saw one with a scrappy border in addition to the sashing and the main border. I think it turned out well. Did I say I love this quilt?

I wanted to see how the blocks would look, so I pressed one block open. I really like it. At first I wondered if I had wasted the jelly roll on too simple a pattern, but I am glad I did. The fabric is beautiful and the simplicity of the block allows the fabric to be showcased. I really like the aesthetic of French General. Maison De Garance was gorgeous.Talking about fabric, I was in Joann's tonight. I had to pick up some thread and decided to check out the Denyse Schmidt fabric. I am sure everybody is aware of the surrounding brouhaha. Anyway, they had all 21 fabrics. I hear they are running out at other stores. If anybody is in need of completing their collection, hit me up. I have a valid 20% off coupon right now, but new 50% ones should come out tomorrow. It is priced at $9.99 a yard. I couldn't find an image for the line, but here is an etsy listing with an image.

Patchwork Squared is having a Modern Solids Quilt Along. I have accumulated a fair amount of Kona auditioning fabric combinations. I am two weeks behind in my blocks, but I will catch up at some point. I am doing two quilts. I want to get to the point where I can have a stash of quilts and give away a quilt when the need arises. That's my plan for these two quilts.
Colour scheme 1: Snow, Avocado, Champagne, Bright Pink
Colour scheme 2: White, Peridot, Pink, Coal
I am going to participate in my first Friday Night Sew-In to get get more accomplished on my Rural Jardin quilt. Will post pictures tomorrow.
