Looks great and I would worry about the label, I don't always remember to but it on.

You did a great job!  I love this quilt.  The color choice is beautiful too.  I need to look at my jellyrolls and see which ones I can play with.  I like the label sewn into the quilt.  It looks very pretty that way.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments! I don't know the name of the fabric line; I got the jelly roll from JoAnns in the quilting section. They had it as a roll or a fat quarter packet. As for the label, I just made it in a similar style with some scraps I had leftover, then used my machine to embroider the information.

I would LOVE to make this quilt - what magazine/month/year was it featured in? Even with simple quilts I'm really bad (beginner) at figuring out quilting figures and numbers to enlarge things. I found a jelly roll I love on sale and trying to figure out how many I need to make a nice twin size quilt (with nice overhang). There is also a fat quarter bundle on sale of the same fabric. I was thinking of getting one or two jelly rolls and one fat quarter bundle to do the front and use some to do backing with other fabric purchased for borders or backing as needed. Anyway, any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Your quilt inspired me - exactly what I was looking for!  

Maybe I only need the fat quarter bundle (26 of them) and one jelly roll. Trying to save cost. So excited about the fabric on sale.


**Update: I realized after really looking at things and doing some figuring with some help - that my question was too faigue and pretty naive. I'm going to do four jelly rolls (they are small ones) plus additional fabric for backing and binding and do a simliar project. But wanted to make sure I thanked you for giving me exactly the inspiration I needed for a particular gift project I've had in my head.

I love your take on this quilt.  I'm in the process of quilting one similiar.  I use a Mary Engelbreit jelly roll for mine.  Yours is beautiful!

Its beautiful. I love the jelly rolls. They are great for beginners (like me).
