This is my very first quilt top.  It's called Jelly Cream Filled Donuts.  I machine pieced it from a Moda Jelly Roll.  The pattern was given to me by my Aunt Rama Badje in Nebraska.  My mother, Madge Bentley of Illinois, helped me do the borders and the backing.  I am mailing it to Nebraska to have it machine quilted.  My Aunt Rama is going to sew the binding on for me.  I'm not a real patient person, so machine piecing seems to be the thing for me.  I loved this first quilt and will treasure it for years to come.  I'll post a finished photo when I get it back from the quilters.

The pattern would be easy to figure out.  I'd guess 8 1/2" centers with 8 1/2" on each side and 6 1/2" top/bottom.  Rows of 5 with one block every other row cut in half to make the offset.  Borders and done.

It's beautiful!  Congratulations, Marcy!  

Did you learn anything with this first quilt?  I've only created about six quilts now, and with each one, I've learned an important lesson.  By inadvertently doing the wrong thing, I've learned what the right thing was that I should have done and must make note of for next time...
