A long time ago (ooh it sounds like a story) I bought a jelly roll. It sat with many other projects, just waiting for a bit of sewing time.
Then I spotted a quit over at Canadian Abroad and I started planning . . . .
First I did a little drawing. . . .
Then I unrolled my jelly roll. . . .
The cutting started. . . .
I needed 48 blocks with 6 fabric strips per block.
The fabric strips are random combinations (very difficult for me, I do like pattern, symmetry & order).
Sew them together, ironing as you go.
Each block was then trimmed to 8 inches square.
All the blocks are laid out, trying to avoid similar colours touching.
Then just sew it all together (ironing as you go) Obviously you mustn't turn them round between the lounge floor and the ironing board or on your way to the sewing machine!!!
I'm pleased to say its all sewn together. Tomorrow I hope to sew on the backing fleece and try to remove all the bits of thread that the hoover wont get off the rug (that could be a fun job for the children!!).
P.S. As the title says 'I'm not sure about the colour' and I'm not. Orange and brown are not normally colours I use or like really. Anyway we'll see what it looks like when I've finished. I can always keep it in a cupboard. . .
