I won it, so I will have to make a????

Several weeks ago, at Liverbirds, there was a very big raffle. My friend Janet, who is extremely generous, brought lots of bundles of fabric to raffle off. The proceeds of which would go into our Liverbird funds. I was really lucky and one of my raffle tickets was pulled out relatively early. Whilst all the fabric was gorgeous we all have individual taste. We had all been allowed to oggle the fabric pre-raffle draw and I had picked out my first choice and second then third and so on(you get the idea). This system was based on if I'd win, exactly when I'd win and the possibility that other members winning before me. I was right and my first choice was taken by my friend Gwen. She has great taste like me, so I could understand her choosing that particular bundle. Then I won HURRAY! I got my second choice and here it is. Due to running out of the twelve days of Christmas fabric, the other day, I needed a quick fix. This fabric was just begging me to cut into it. After loving stroking the fabric and admiring it since I'd won it, I felt it would be ideal to turn it into a jelly roll. Also, I really should make a jelly roll quilt, from one of the three books I purchased quite sometime ago. And that my friends is exactly what I did but you will have to wait a little longer to see the finished top, I want to add another boarder. I promise it is worth the wait.

OOh look at all that lovely fabric!
I still have a jelly roll, unused. It too has been opened and stroked LOL so I am looking forward to seeing what you do with yours.

Hi Kath, I made a kind of french plait, lap quilt. It was quick to sew up once I had all the 2 1/2" strips cut. x
