I really don’t have very much time to work on personal quilting projects because all of my time goes to pattern design and promoting my current patterns.
However, I’m a firm believer that you’ve still got to find time for the things in your life that you do for no other reason than because you enjoy them.
So…I’m taking a few minutes a day to work on things that are just fun (and not work).
I have just started making a quilt for an old hospital from the 1800’s located in Virginia City. The caretakers are restoring it and I thought it would be nice to donate a quilt for one of the guest beds using Civil War era fabric.
Civil War fabric is NOT my thing so I thought this would be a good way to get out of my box at the same time!
I wanted to use jelly roll strips and found this fun and easy pattern.
I’m using two jelly rolls by Moda. They’re called something like “Collection for a Cause”- don’t have one in front of me at the moment. I wanted to make a twin but I think I’ll be just shy with the two rolls. It’s probably not worth getting another roll so I’ll just add a border as needed.
Even though I’m not a Civil War fabric type of person…I’m still liking the strip sets! Yeah!
