Thanks, all!  I have another jelly roll of these same fabrics - I think I might try a rail fence pattern with them - will post that when (if) I get that done! Grin

I'm going to sound like a moron, but since I haven't yet tried my hand at quilting....

What is jelly roll ?

Beautiful quilt! Makes me want to try it out.

Definitely not a moron! Cheesy

A jelly roll is a roll of strips of fabric cut 2.5 inches wide across the width of the bolt of fabric, so usually 2.5 inches by 44 inches.  I think they usually have 40 strips in them, though mine had something like 44 or 45.  They are generally all from some fabric designer's collection, so tend to coordinate really well.  Saves a lot of time on cutting, but then you have to find a pattern you like that uses those size strips.

Jelly Rolls make awesome Log Cabin quilts with blocks a bit larger than usual, but still very nice. in fact, that would be a really good first-time quilt. the strips would be pre-cut and the piecing of a log cabin is super simple if you can do chain piecing.

This is so beautiful!  I remember seeing that pattern in a book of Jelly Roll quilts, and not being that impressed with the fabrics they used.  I like yours a LOT better!  Much more dramatic!

It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to craft.

Very Pretty!  I actually this same quilt as a WIP right now.  Did you use a pattern?  I saw it on the front of a book somewhere (actually an ad for the book) and decided to figure it out for myself.  Plus, I'm making it King size and a lot of the patterns I see are for much smaller quilts.  I love your color choices, mine is going to be juicier, brighter colors, but I like yours a lot too!  Nice to see it all finished, now I am re-inspired to pull mine off the back burner!
