Reunion collection by Sweetwater for Moda
Of course, jelly rolls are not a new thing and many of you have already probably come to this conclusion. What can I say? I am a little behind... but better late than never.
Once all the pieces were cut, I laid them out and played with the placement. I am using the same pattern I used for my Rose Quilt.
This part of the quilt making process is what takes the longest. It takes awhile to set the pieces out just as a I want them. I cannot do random placement. I like it to look random, but there is nothing random about my process.
Once I get them all set out, I may even move some around and rearrange them a little. Yes, it is probably unnecessary, but I can't help it. It's an obsession.
I love these fabrics, especially the navy, grey and green together. These prints are so fun and simple and they go so well together.
I always lay out my quilt tops over the quilt on my bed because if I lay it on the floor either my kids or my cats will have a field day with it. There is nothing better than a bunch of fabric pieces set out neatly to throw around and make a mess with.
The grey one (Artemis) is the ring leader of mischievous acts. You can't turn your back on this one. He is always watching and waiting for his chance to get in the middle of what I am working on.
Happy sewing. Stay tuned for more...
Have a great day!
