 I saw this very cute Moda Bakeshop tutorial here. I think the pattern is perfect for my very first Riley Blake jelly roll. I used white fabric with yellow dots for the background. I just finished quilting the top and I am so pleased at how pretty and easy this quilt came together.
  I wanted to accentuate the teal fabric and added a second border with these cute teal and white squares.
 A few years ago I bought a pack of 12 Raggedy Ann embroidered blocks at a quilt show. I did not want to make a traditional red and white quilt. I found this yellow fabric with red cherries in my stash -  perfect to go with the red Raggedy Ann's.
 Again to accentuate the yellow fabric, I added yellow yo-yo's. The yo-yo's also hid some of my "not so good lined up" red sashing strips.
 This is a picture I took outside, I love how the quilt wrinkled after the first wash.
 I used Hobbs 100% cotton batting.
 I am working on two new projects. A jelly roll quilt and a 1930's quilt.  Darlene's  pattern called "Just Between Friends" is perfect for my 1930's stash which I cut up in 2,5" strips.
 I hope you all are enjoying the first month of the new year.
Happy Quilting,
