This is my finish for the week. I used a Jelly Roll to make this quilt and, no, you have not seen this one before. It just looks the same, but when I showed you this quilt a couple weeks ago, I used a Layer Cake. When I made the above quilt, I used the same fabric but it was from a Jelly Roll. The fabric is Happy Campers by American Jane for Moda. My thinking was that I had so much trouble piecing the layer cake, that surely this precut Jelly Roll would be easier. In addition, the pattern was from Moda (sorry I forget the name) and looked simple like something I could do. What a hoot! I cannot tell you how I struggled making this quilt.
I was almost ready to give up piecing all together. Then I changed my mind when I was visiting Sew Happy Me and found instructions for accurate piecing. I purchased two cans of spray starch, checked and rechecked my sewing machine to make sure I had a scant quarter inch seam, and stacked a pile of leaders and enders by my machine. I’m ready to make some more stars for the soldiers and I’m hoping they can be more accurate this time.
