Jellyroll Joyride Quilt #3
is with the Origami fabric collection by Janet Clare
for Moda Fabrics.
This is #3 of 4 collections that my daughter
helped me to make the foundations for
to make my new pattern,
Jellyroll Joyride for my booth at Spring Quilt Market
next month in Kansas City.
This morning I trimmed the strips,
then arranged them to get ready to sew.
After each strip is sewn onto the foundation,
it’s important to measure across the quilt in 3 places
to be sure the strips are being sewn on straight.
So I measured on the left side,
in the center,
and on the right side.
As you can see the measurement is 16 1/2″ each time.
Although I’ve made many of my Quilt-as-you-go patterns,
I still feel that it is important to check
my sewing so my quilts are straight when they’re finished!
Another thing that I want to mention
is that when I get to the center of the quilt,
I roll the foundation from both ends
to help manage the bulk of the quilt as I sew.
With Warm & Natural cotton batting
there isn’t a lot of bulk,
but rolling the batting & backing foundation
makes the sewing very easy to manage!
Soon I was sewing the binding strips together,
and then onto this quilt!
Tonight while watching TV I got my binding box out & went to work.
And now #3 is complete!
You really can make this quilt in a day!
Just Keep Sewing…
