Mothers Day Quilt

For Mothers Day Gemma & Lucas bought me this.

Mothers Day Jelly Roll

This is what it has became.

It is such a great pattern and is so quick and easy to make I made the top in an afternoon. The pattern is by Colleen Archbold and is designed to use 1 Jelly Roll. I love this as I don't have to spend hours trying to figure out what fabrics to use.

I added a label.

I quilted it using a template.

I love it and last night found Lucas snuggled up underneath it on the lounge so he has also given it the tick of approval.

I know a lot of other girls out there have mentioned this site but it is worth a visit.

You know when you have a problem and it just snowballs well I am still having a few computer problems.......with all the work Sean has done we have used up all our fast internet hours and without changing our plan which is really good and we have never had this problem before, we are now on dial up speed. Blog reading is very slow and leaving comments is impossible............ I can do the dishes and clean the house while waiting for pages to load so if you don't hear from me up until the 15th that is why.

Your quilt is just gorgeous. I just finished up a quilt with the Simplicity fabric...a simple altered 9 patch...a wonderful fabric! Your quilting is great too. Thanks for sharing!

your mothers day quilt is beautiful. Perhaps this is a way to use my two jellyrolls.
I got lost in the quilting bloggers link. A lot of new bloggers to me there. And I even found myself there :)

Locket Pocket said...

Your quilt is stunning! What a lovely Mother's Day present - one day I might treat myself to a Jelly Roll - or persuade the other Lockets to treat me to one instead!!!

I popped over to the quilting bloggers page and was amazed to find myself there!

The good news is that I have finally plucked up the courage to start stitching your mini quilt - I just hope it works out!

You just blow me away with the amount of work you put out Leanne - the quilt is just lovely. I know what you mean about internet - I am on go slow at the moment too - the joy of teenagers!!! At least mine comes back on the 9th!!!

Leah said...

I like your quilt (and yay for well trained children!). That's areally effective use of a jelly roll - now I have a reason to succumb to their temptation!

A Spoonful Of Sugar said...

What thoughtful children! Your quilt is gorgeous - I have been tempted by the Jelly Rolls and it is great to see a completed project.

May Kristin said...

Your Mother's day quilt is gorgeous! How clever of your kids to give you the Jelly! And then to a question, which pattern did you use? I love it!

Love your quilt! Nice pattern, nice colours! And since Mother's Day? Wow! Then I guess it is your winter. No sewing gets done here in the summer!!!

I like the idea that you can make that lovely quilt out of a jelly roll of fabric! How cool is that?!
