My Charm Pack & Jelly Roll quilt from H***
Some time ago I bought , 2 charm packs and 1 jelly roll. The charms are mostly plaids and stripes the Jelly rolls are floral, strips & paisleys, the plaids and stripes are not cut straight and to straighten them out I would end up
with too much gone so they are going to be sewn together as is, even though they are crooked I guess I will use them in a quilt to throw in the car to
have for a table cover or to throw on the ground if needed.
I sewed the charms in 4-patches with a narrow 1" solid red
sashing and it will be what it is.The sashing across the width is 3" and since I had to piece it to get it wide enough, I decided to use the navy. I am planning on putting a navy border and I'm gong to try to bind it with the remaining Jelly Roll strips and if need be I will add the solid fabric to get a piece long enough to bind.
I think I'm done with the charm
packs as they are too limiting and I don't like not washing my fabric before sewing, it makes me itch, I don't like the chemicals in the fabric. So here is the top sans the border.
Well, I guess I do like it better but I'm still very disappointed and it is one
of those things I will look at and see what is wrong with it instead of
what is okay. It actually does look much better in person than in the picture. I think
the blue painters tape really adds something don't you? LOL
