Jelly Roll quilt update

Hey readers,

I finished the top of the jelly roll quilt!!  Whoop, to work on kitting up projects for the summer time.  I need to get a better picture, but here is what it looks like with the borders on.  I have not finalized a name or scripture to go on the back, so if you have any suggestions put them in the comments!  Tomorrow I will call Betty Lewis and see if she can get it quilted for me.

Hope you have a big week and all goes well for you and yours.

Sew on,

Jelly Roll quilt

Hey Readers,

I found out last week who won the Modern Christmas Quilt...Linda Kay Barbour, mother of my across the street neighbor and very sweet lady!! I was so excited to find out she won the silent auction for the quilt.
The other day I was on Facebook and Stitchin Heaven in Texas was doing a live broadcast and said if you left a comment you could win a prize, so I said "Hi from Mississippi" and next thing you know they called my name and sent me this book!  

My latest project is  a quilt for William and Laura.  William is Anne's nephew and Laura is his fiancĂ©'.  They are getting married in June.  My project is out of the book Smash Your Precut Stash!   I am doing the Sassy 16.   The pattern designers called for all the background to be the same fabric.  I chose to do it a variety of creams and whites.  

 So Friday we were out of school for Good Friday and my car had a recall on the airbags which is a 5 hour repair.  So I packed up my Featherweight and the project and took it with me.  So I sat there and sewed 168 flip and stitch corners and made strips of the  16 patch blocks.

I need to get going on this so I can get it to them by wedding day...hope I make it!
