I have been working on two original quilt projects the past couple of weeks. The first one is almost finished. I call it "Jelly Roll Race Squared", I cut up the remaining pieces of Tula Pink's "Eden" collection that I had, into 2 1/2 inch strips, not sure how many strips I ended up with. I divided all the strips into four groups of colour . One pink, one purple and two green. I cut the yellow and orange strips into 2 1/2" squares and then... I sewed each of the four colour groups in jelly roll race fashion, inserting a square of colour in between the strips. After sewing up the mini jelly roll races, I sewed the two green ones together to make one strip so it would equal the other two strips in length. I will insert a narrow strip of medium dark grey to join the strips and bind it in the grey.
My second project is called "The End of Nummers" My supply of Ikea's coveted "Nummers" fabric is drying up. You can see that I have used it in several projects over the past few years, if you follow my blog. So this trilogy of small quilted pieces is my tribute to the wonderful time I have had collecting and sewing up this giant texty print. I still have a shipment on it's way but it will be the last one. Many thanks to my Fabric Mule for all the time and trouble spent in making my collection possible. I also used up most of the leftovers from my Alison Glass "Handcrafted" fat quarter pack as well as strips of Nummers that were leftover from other projects. So, totally scrappy! Here it is...

" Nummer Two "
My plan is to group these three pieces, when completed, together in an arrangement on the wall. Still have work to do as I am not completely sure how they will end up. That's how I roll!
Hope you had time to do something quilty today!
