Back in 2009 or '10, I bought a gorgeous jelly roll in Fall colors while shopping with Ellen. This was before I started quilting, before I even knew what a jelly roll was. I just knew I loved these colors and WANTED it.
Since then, I've been waiting for inspiration to strike, for the jelly to tell me what it wanted to be. Well, it spoke, I listened and we're done!
I may have forgotten that I even needed a back, until hubby reminded me as I proudly showed off the completed top last night. . .
The gold batik was in my stash and the blue batik came from Aunt Marti's destash. The blue is lighter in real life - more like the photo below - and it's perfect.
With its inner turquoise border and bright hues, this one reminds me more of the Caribbean than Fall leaves, so I'm calling it "Caribbean Sunrise."
It'll be a couple of weeks before I get it back from being long-arm quilted. Then binding, washing and admiring are all that remain to be done.
