I know it is the first week of spring but with all the snow we still have out there, I am beginning to wonder if spring will ever come!
To go along with all that snow, I have a Christmas-y finish!
I have finally finished my Jelly Roll 1600 quilt!!
|I took the pictures Wednesday morning, after the 20cm dump of snow we got on Tuesday.|
I quilted it on my mom's long arm machine last week. I am so happy to say that I am no longer scared of this machine! It was so nice to feel comfortable using it, now if only I could find more time to use it... anyways, I decided this time around to do some free motion quilting and it was so much easier than following a pattern! I am really beginning to like this!

As you can see in the picture above, I used the strips as my guide. I alternated between a row of loops and a row of wavy lines. I think it gives the quilt some nice texture.
I used a green flannel for the back and I bound it using one of the black fabrics from the same line. It is going to be perfect to snuggle under at Christmas time!

I am linking up to TGIFF over at Sew, love, live.
And I also wanted to let you know that I will be sewing again tonight for the Friday Night Sew In over at Heidi's. Hopefully I will be finishing my itty bitty twister and my March mini. I will let you know how that all goes tomorrow!
