Jelly Roll Challenge Finished

28 01 2015


In my previous post, I detailed the preliminary construction of my latest quilting project. In the past few days, I sewed columns 1-5 together and then sewed 6-10 together. Then I joined the two halves of the quilt to make the whole top.

Here’s a picture of the quilt on the longarm machine without the quilting texture.


Now you can see the texture added.


I thought about using a dark variegated thread, but I didn’t have enough on the spool. Usually my go-to thread color is olive green because it blends nicely with most colors. But this time I selected an old gold variegated thread. I really like the outcome; the gold gives some sparkle to all the rich, dark colors.


To echo the linear design of the quilt, I free-handed continuous rectangles of various sizes.


The quilt, in all its modern, linear glory, will be perfect for Darin, my teenage second cousin.
