Splash of Color Jelly Roll Quilt Finish, New Ironing Board Cover, Bag of Scraps Score


I bought a batik jelly roll called Splash of Color by Moda on sale a year ago to make a strip quilt. This week I cut the 2.5" WOF strips in half, randomized them and sewed them together end to end to make a jelly roll race quilt.


I pulled three batiks from stash to piece a backing.


It's sandwiched with White and Natural cotton batting, quilted with horizontal wavy lines using my domestic sewing machine's walking foot and a 3.1 stitch length. A pale yellow cream cotton thread was used for the top and a variegated green cotton thread was used in the bobbin. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 51.5" x 63.5".


When I was ironing Monday, I ripped a hole in my old, stained, worn ironing board cover. I took the old one apart for a pattern. My new one is an improvement. It's reversible with a layer of batting inside. I love it.


My mother and I went to a local quilt show today. They had boxes of scraps for sale. A plastic bag of scraps was $2. I scored with lots of precut squares and scraps perfect for a couple I Spy scrap quilts.

Great jelly roll quilt - super back! Score on the scraps. I buy my ironing board covers when I see them on sale.

What fun to have new scraps to play with. New ironing board covers are so nice, enjoy it while it is fresh and clean.

Congrats on the finish, it's a bright and fun quilt.

You can't go wrong with a purple ironing board cover. It looks great.

She does it all! Love your quilt! Love that it's randomized - more than a regular JRR would usually be. Good Job!
And a new ironing board cover - any color you want, and reversible? Genius!
Now what could be better than an inexpensive influx of fabric? We know you will do great things with it.
Hugs
