What a lucky group of people we are to spend a day together, sharing and caring, and sewing up a storm!
Baby quilt #2, 1/2 of the 1600″ jelly roll quilt.
What a neat idea, Karen to make 2 baby quilts at once! Love those cupcakes and butterflys! Thanks for sharing!
The beginning stage of making this 1600″ jelly roll quilt is to sew ALL 48 (forty eight) 42″ strips into one very long strip (1600″).
We are working in the dining room of the Green Ladle Restaurant in Lewiston, Maine run by Chef Dan Caron.
Ellie expertly taught the group how to make the 1600″ Jelly Roll Quilt from Heirloom Creations. Thank you Ellie! And, thank you Karen Mitchell for helping with the math conversions we needed for another size of the same quilt.
