    Wonderful colors! I have some stacks of fabrics and jelly roll strips for a future project loosely based on the color wheel. This reminds me of that somewhat. I really love the looks of quilts that have mixed hues. I’m looking forward to seeing your plan!

      I haven’t done this kind of thing before. I’ll credit my sister with suggesting using the rainbow for this particular project. I think it will be striking and rather modern looking when done.

    Those are beautiful and just what is needed right now!!! My post today is a project using stash batiks (which I didn’t really know I had!!!!!). I have never used batiks in anything so, when I went through my totes, I was stunned by the amount I had. I’m really lovin’ this one! Can’t wait to see your creation!!!!!! Hugs……………………….

    I was just gifted with two batik jelly rolls two weeks ago and wondering what to do with them. Jelly roll race quilt seemed too predictable for me….so I will be watching your postings for ideas! 😀

      Ah, that will be fun! I haven’t used jelly rolls. These are mostly from bits and pieces in my stash. Except the background fabric, the biggest piece I needed from anything was 13.5″ x 3″. So I cut 3″ strips and will cut my pieces from those. It’s one of those I will need to lay out ALL the pieces for arrangement before stitching at all. Fortunately the stitching will be simple, cuz the rest of it will be a little mental work!

      Thanks for stopping today and commenting.
