Dragged out the crate with my Jelly Roll Quilt pieces...need to get this set together to quilt in the cold months ahead,
Jellyroll Quilt, time to work on it a bit, I had sat it back to work on another project, Time to It is overcast today,spent time in my sewing room,
coordinating my fabrics,setting together a
apple jelly roll quilt,I would like to have
the jellyroll quilt top finished,
Wintertime I will have the quilt on the old
pull down quilt frame, quilting was taught
to me by my mother and grandmother,
I can remeember my granny (Iva Marie,
with a basket of colored threads,
a bar of soap,with needles sticking in the soap bar.
She said... ("the soap made the needles sharp") smile~.
She had an old apron that held her old fashion needle threader,
her glasses,and butterscotch candies, we sat
for hours quilting,not a word was said.
Back to my quilt,(memories,they sure can
bring back the good times) a fabric here,
an old wooden bobbin case granny carried
all her life.I will treasure grannys things forever.
The fabrics I choose for theAutumn Apple Jelly Roll Quilt was a fun project, I love to go the the fabric store,
choosing the fabrics sometimes can be the most fun,
then as you piece the quilt it takes on a life of its own..
