Jellyroll 1600

Those of you in blogland probably know about Jellyroll 1600, don’t you?  If you don’t, go take a peek.  We decided to have this as an optional activity at our guild retreat.  And it was fun.  Our winner, Allison, finished in 35 minutes.  No kidding!

Here are some pics for your perusal.  Enjoy!

This one was mine.  I know batiks are frowned upon in the modern quilt movement, but that’s okay.  I love it.  I used a Sugarplum Tonga Treat to match my living room.  If I haven’t mentioned it, my husband and I bought eggplant-colored sofas about 9 years ago.  We are still trying to figure out why.

This was made by Peggy, my high school friend Misty’s mom.

Grace, Liz’s mom made this one using Sugar Pop.

A bordered one made by Kim B.

Carolyn was giving her quilt a makeover.

Our winner, the guild secretary, Allison.

And there were more, but I think you get the picture!  Nothing fancy– just a bunch of strips sewn together  to make a quilt that is perfect for draping over my purple couch.

  1. How could anyone frown on batiks that are so beautiful like that? I consider myself a “modern quilter” and I don’t frown on anything. That’s not cool. 😉 Thanks for posting those awesome pictures!

  2. Oh pretty. I particularly like that last one, nice job Alison!

    I love batiks. But then again, I don’t belong to any particular ‘school of quilting.’ I quilt what I like and I like what I quilt. But I digress. Your quilt is really beautiful! Love the rich colors. What a fun activity.

    I’m glad you chose the batiks…looks great! I know we’ve mentioned the current movement away from batiks, and I must confess that I recently added some of the more “modern” ones to my collection.

    We are doing this in one of our small groups, Silver Needles Quilters” in Bella Vista. I made one at home to see how it would go. Oh my gosh, a whole lot over 35 minutes for the first 2 rows! Our group is doing the 1 – 2- 3 go on Monday, March 18. I do love how the random piecing looks & I agree w’ several others on your site, batiks are NEVER wrong! Beautiful!
