How’s this for cheerful?

Well, I’m not sure we got as much snow as we were forecasted to get, but the wind was sure blowing, which means our driveway and lots of the rural roads around here are probably plugged up pretty well.

I got the center of my Strawberry Lemonade quilt put together.  Those are 8 inch blocks.  I’ve got some of the dark pink stripe and the strawberries on blue on order for borders and binding.


I really like the rail fence.  So versatile, yet  so simple.  Scrappy or planned fabric choices, works in all sorts of strip sizes (and even numbers of strips).

I really like these Jelly Rolls, too.  This is the first time I’ve actually used one.  Well, two:  the quilt above makes use of two entire jelly rolls, with no leftovers.

While writing this post, our power went out for awhile!  Thanks heavens for our local utility company that got the power back on quickly.  It was a little too early to go to bed…LOL…

    Suzanne that is just adorable!!! I love that new Strawberry Lemonade line and I’m having a tough time keeping myself from buying a jelly roll or two from it. But alas I’m on a fabric diet and am trying really hard not to buy any fabric unless it’s to finish a project. Great job though and I cannot wait to see how you quilt it!

    oooooo, yummy! Just what the doctor ordered for a dreary winter day! I’m working on a quilt using 2 jelly rolls, and there’s going to be a lot of fabric leftover. I also had to buy some extra light colors for it. I think I’ll do a rail fence next time!

    That’s beautiful. I have some Kaffe Fasset fat quarters waiting for me at home for my first attempt at quilting. But maybe I should try some jelly rolls too!! Now all I need is a 48 hour day to fit everything in. Lovely blog.
