D'dot's Jelly Roll quilt.

I just started to write a new blog post and realized I hadn't posted this from last week......

I'm one proud momma. My daughter decided last week to make her boyfriend a quilt for his birthday in two weeks.  We decided on a jelly roll quilt. She selected a number of 'masculine ' prints, cut them into 2 1/2 inch strips and sewed.  She had the top done in a couple  of hours.  

We ran out of  time to quilt it before she returned to Vancouver.  She did get it loaded on the frame before she left.  I quilted it on Tuesday.  Just for interest I timed myself. 

Look at that.  Less than an hour of stitching.  total time was about  1 hour and twenty  minutes - winding bobbins, changing bobbins and advancing.
