Quick Post - Quick Quilt!!

Things are moving faster than fast this week.  I've had something every single day and looking forward to tomorrow when I head down to Manchester to attend the: World Quilt Show .  That is a link to the most pictures from the shows.  I hope to have some pictures of my own to share when I return.

Have you all heard of the 1600 Quilts?  Here's a link to a fast and fun video: Heirloom Creations. Heirloom Creations has done a wonderful job on this video and it's so much fun.  The quilts can be made with Jelly Rolls or Bali Pops.  Here's a picture of the one that I just put together yesterday, and yep it does take less than 3 hours to complete start to finish.  I used straight seams to connect the strips end to end, you can see from the video others have angled them.  Here's the pic...


The quilt works best with the Jelly Rolls and Bali Pops because you have a complete fabric line included in the quilt.  It makes for a fast throw size quilt, absolutely perfect for someone that you would like to make a quilt for, but not invest all of the precious time that it would normally take.

Here's a peek at a couple of quilts that I did some time ago for Pat in VA. Her blog is Artfully Ooflebloops, hop on over and let her know you've seen her quilts. These are the scrappy of scrappy quilts.  She picked these interesting quilts up at a thrift shop.  They have enough character to definitely make them interesting. 



As always I've posted more pictures over at my other blog:


If you haven't signed up for my giveaway, you still have time.  You can read about it here.  If I don't post before Monday, hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for checking on me,
hugs,
joanne

I just love those bali pops in that quilt. I can see where the quilting would add such character to the quilt.

Those are wonderful scrappy quilts.

I love the strip quilt, something i want to do. I do have a jelly roll, now I have to decide how I want to work with it. It is a lot of red, white and blue, so thinking a strip quilt with an americana them applique on some parts of it.

Really like the way your string quilt turned out. Congrats on your finish. I have a jelly roll...now if I could just find the time.

I love jelly roll quilts. It's a great way to use lots of beautiful fabrics without spending a million bucks. Hope to see photos from the Manchester show and hear what you picked up from the vendors.
