When my 'Jelly Cakes' arrived, I felt compelled to experiment with these precut pieces.
Jelly Cakes are 1 Layer cakes (40 - 10"square) and 1 Jelly Roll(40- 2.5" strips)

There is an element of softness when working on a baby quilt.
While making a baby quilt, I always marvel at one of the greatest miracles of all
-a perfect healthy baby!

Design by 'Carolyn' Kingston, Jamaica 2009

I experimented with the 'Jelly Rolls' 2.5" strips and had fun with the border.
It worked well!

Carlene continues to amaze us all with her grandson Jaimie's quilt:-

Please note the tractor wheel is one piece of fabric giving the illusion of the 'real'
tractor can almost feel the wheels turning..Well done Carlene!

Happy Quilting,

Lots of Blessings,

There is a charm about 'old enamelware'. I bought this painting today that hangs amongst my fabrics reflecting a warmth from the past. What's missing? A fireplace and more quilts.
See the Turnovers? They were such fun.

While assembling my quilt top to be quilted my mind usually wonders. How difficult this must be had I not been attending Yoga Classes......the poses and stretches are wonderful!

Carlene has finished 'The Buggy' Block. I think it's adorable....the workmanship is amazing. Any suggestions for the sashing?
