I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
Today's effort was a variation on the jelly roll race (jelly roll 1600) quilt. Instead of sewing the strip together with a diagonal seam, I cut two of the strips into 2-1/2 inch squares and cut four 2-1/2 inch squares from a third strip. I used the 2-1/2 inch squares between each of the strips. It probably would have been a bit more striking if the squares had all been the same fabric, but this jelly roll didn't have triples of any of the fabric. The fabric is "First Ladies" from Windham fabrics.
