It is amazing...

what you can do if your fabric is cut out ahead of time. This is where the quilting fairies would come in handy! I cut out the three blocks last night and didn't get to sewing until 9:00 tonight but finished all three by 11:30. They went so smoothly since I didn't have to take time for quilting. The jelly roll sampler (middle block) is almost finished. I only have one more block to make and then I can put it together. I can't wait to see it.

It was a great day today with much lower humidity and cooler temperatures. I had the windows open all day and when I met some friends for lunch we sat outside! It was delightful. I know it is only temporary since I can feel the humidity returning but nice to have in any way we can get it.


  1. Such pretty blocks, Nancy. Like you, I am anxious to see that last block.

    I'm so ready to cut sashing and put it all together. I've kept all the patterns to make another one .... one day.

  2. Love the color choices you are using. I've been downloading the pdf files for the Jelly Roll Sampler- I'll be interested to see yours finished.
