  2. Hi Leeanne, I followed Amy Gibson's tutorial - it uses one jelly roll and yardage to make two large baby quilts, with six variations of layout for the HSTs that you make with the jelly roll strips. I decided to make three different sized quilts so that I could try out three different layouts. http://www.stitcherydickorydock.com/to-the-point-a-quick-n-easy-jelly-quilt-tutorial/

    1. Thanks! I had to come back to your blog to see if you had answered my question, you don't have it set up to go to emails. Much appreciated!

    1. Cheers Sarah! My sewing is on hold for a couple of days while we repaint the lounge and dining areas (seeing as summer has disappeared on us and my hubby can't get out on his motorbike, the urge to paint has taken over!)

    1. Thanks, I am loving them too - will hopefully be all done in the next few weeks (our summer holidays are almost over so I'd better get back to school and do some preparation at some stage this week - is hard to find my 'go-go' though!)

  5. Hi Jen, I can't believe you have managed to complete so much already! Is your scrap bag any emptier or like mine which fills up all by itself over night? I love the marbled fabrics used in the last quilt. Thanks for visiting my blog,
    Sue
