I've Changed My Mind

I just want to thank all of you who wrote to me telling me where I could get another Lilac Lane jelly roll.  You are awesome  and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

So what else is new I hear you ask yourself?

Well, the reason I need two of those jelly rolls was because I wanted to make this in King Size

I fell in love with it but having looked at it again I've decided I want to make a lap quilt out of or a single bed quilt.  I think there is just too much white for my bed, seeing as Mr. Early spends so much time on it watching TV, and I think I'd prefer more color (colour) in my bed quilt.  So I don't need a second jelly roll after all.

The only thing I didn't understand when watching this video, and looking at how much fabric was needed, was that Jenny says that the entire quilt is made up of 9 blocks which is fine by why would you need extra fabric?  I just worked it out!  The white blocks in the middle are not made from a jelly roll.  DUH!!!  But me being me I think I just might use a jelly roll for the middle 9 patch squares as well as this way it will all be perfect (one hopes) and also it's not gonna be in white because of my jelly roll I think I will use cream and not Moda either because, IMHO, Kona is just so much superior.

So, I hope you enjoy this YouTube video that Jenny has made.  Her instructions are always so clear.  She has made loads of tutorials for YouTube so enjoy and go and see some more!!!

Until next time ...
Lots of Love Patti xxx

  1. I'm late on this obviously -- didn't see your last post till this one. But I want to make an irish chain like that too, so I'm a happy camper. lol! Thanks for the video!

  2. I have never made a quilt with that much white either. I like more color and a little more scrappy. I think a smaller quilt is a good idea. You can cuddle with it yourself in front of the TV and you don't need to share!


I absolutely LOVE it when you leave a comment and I read each and every comment and try to reply to you all.
