Now, for the preview! I have been sewing like crazy on next year’s mystery quilt. The design is done, one throw size quilt top is pieced, and at the moment it is on the quilting frame. I do like the design, and I think it is a good scrappy look. I am planning to make another larger one to check the measurements. The sneak preview is this – the design will take advantage of jelly roll strips, charm packs and layer cakes, along with some fat quarters. So, take advantage of the clearance sales on those precuts and you’ll have a big head start on the mystery. I just ordered three clearance charm packs for the 5 inch squares I’ll need for the larger size, and save cutting time.
I have another new design coming up next week using jelly roll leftovers. It will be a very fast project using just 9 jelly roll strips, so dig out those strips, or cut some WOF strips 2-1/2 inches in width to quilt along with a project that can be finished in an afternoon. Plus, the red two tone quilt is in the design process and I think will be a quilt along too.
Did you have fun with Autumn Jubilee? Please join me in thanking all the wonderful sponsors of this event.
