Corey got me this really cute jelly roll for Christmas in pinks and purples (pictured below - image from QuiltersWay.biz) that I decided to use. I also had a cute pattern that I got from Quilters Way in Concord.
We decided to get together yesterday to make a quilt using our jelly rolls. I used a braid pattern I had from Quilters Way in Concord, MA they made especially for jelly rolls. It was a lot of fun working on it. The initial cutting took a while, which was surprising since they were already cut into 2 1/2 inch strips. I had to cut all 40 of the strips into six or seven 6"x 2 1/2" pieces. At lease once I did all that cutting I didn't have to do any more cutting until all of the braids were made. You can see the beginning steps of the quilt below. I have to add sashing in between each braid, the inner border, and the outer border. I'm debating between purple or pink for the border color. We'll see what I decide to do.
