Design Wall Monday

I've got a busy week again, but I did take time to work on something and it's ready for me to sew, even if I only have a few minutes.

The pattern is Totally Tulips from Missouri Star Quilt Company. 



I'm not making mine as large as called for in the pattern, so all of my blocks are made. I need to add the small sashing strips between the vertical blocks and then add the long vertical sashing. I haven't decided what I'm going to do for borders yet, and won't until the inside is sewn together. 

This was fun and easy, but I have to say that I will be more careful if I make this again. I basically did what Jenny Doan did in the video and pressed willy nilly and didn't pin. I found myself getting lazy and some of the blocks show it. 

I've got a couple more Jelly Roll Rug strips put together and even have another "rope" ready to start sewing the rug. These really addictive. My justification is that I've had to make some for class samples and really perfect the technique before I can teach it. (With a quilt, I have to make a bunch of blocks, but not with this.)  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.  :-) 

Here are some pictures of the last two that I completed.






What are you working on today?

The tulips look nice to me, but I know what you mean about losing the edge of precision. Teh rugs are stunning; I love how each one is unique.

I've got to make a tulip quilt!!!n Every time I see one I wish it was mine. The rugs looks like a fun project. I'm going to have to read back in your blog to see what else you have to say about these rugs. They look great!

I love making Jenny’s patterns. Just finished a top for a double bed. Currently made 12 cozy cup inserts that go into mugs so that the outside has 5 pockets and 4 inside pockets to hold small sewing supplies or office supplies

Beautiful tulip quilt. I'm so looking forward to seeing tulips outside this spring. Friends are coming to visit us and we're going over to Holland, MI, to see lots of them. Your rag rugs are beautiful. Do you sew them on the sewing machine? Thanks for linking up with Design Wall Monday, Judy

Your tulips are beautiful! Your fabric choices make each tulip pop but are cohesive at the same time. I'm going to be making my first jelly roll rug, I can not wait to give it a try, yours turned out beautifully!
