A Sneak Peak

I started a new project.  It has taken me longer than I expected, but I think it is going to be fabulous.  Lots of hand applique and hand quilting in this one.

My Line Art Quilt

I saw this pattern in the Quilts and More magazine.  It looked simple and sweet and the perfect use of a jelly roll that I had in my stash.  It really was easy to make.  Just add 2 and 1/2 inch strips of white to each side of the fabric and stagger them to what looks good to you.  After I had it all put together, I just quilted it 1/4 inch on each side of the seams.  The jelly roll I used was one of Mary Engelbreit's.  I'm not sure which one but I do love this fabric.  My daughter, Amy claimed it as soon as she saw it.  I think I might make a mini one from the leftovers.
