Sew & Tell Friday #12: Charm & Jelly Roll Quilt Top Plus More …

DSC01445

I decided to take a break from nickel quilts!  I made this top from a kit I purchased at my LQS a couple years ago.  I saw the sample in the store and fell in love with the fabric and design.  Actually, the store had run out of the kits, but I was still able to buy some yardage and received the pattern for free.

It’s such an easy scrappy design that uses one charm pack plus one jelly roll.  The block is a four-patch of 2-1/2” squares, plus four 2-1/2” strips, which are sewn to the 4-patch in a log-cabin style.  I started this last week and just finished it yesterday.  I’m not sure when I’ll be quilting it so for now it’s back to the UFO pile … hopefully not for long!

UPDATE:  Sold flimsy top on eBay in February 2011


One more finish since last Friday … I previously posted about this top and finally finished quilting and binding it this week.  Click here to read my previous post:
