KK's Jelly Roll Quilt

A few posts back I showed you my braid quilt made out of a jelly roll. I made most of my quilt during a "quilting day" with my aunt, KK. She got most of hers done that day too. She sent me a picture of her completed top last week that she just finished. Isn't it wonderful? It has this calming, tranquil feeling to it that makes you just want to cuddle up under it.

It's completely different than most of the quilts we've made. We have a very similar quilting style. We both tend to gravitate towards the more modern, funky fabrics and colors.

On another note, I'm excited that Jim Rice got voted into the hall of fame today. As a die-hard Red Sox fan my entire life, this made me very happy. Congrats Jim! (like he reads this blog...)


  1. Love the quilt! I am with you, also being a Red Sox fan, I was happy with the announcement.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. I love that quilt too, I couldn't enlarge it though when I clked on it, but it looks very pretty.
    Am not much of a baseball fan, but we were in the Mass. area when the "moon turned blue" that year and the whole area was rejoicing. It was great as a Canadian to take part in celebrations of the century.
    I too am new to quilting (not young though) and love bright cheery and different colour combinations.
