~Wrapped in Paisley~ A New Quilt

Last week I saw on the Fat Quarter site a Tutorial for a Jelly Roll Jam II Quilt-
Shortcut Quilt Series
I was intrigued and went had a look and decided there and then 'I'll do that'!
This is my second Jelly Roll that I have ever used and I got really keen

The Jelly Roll I used was Wrapped in Paisley by Kansas Trouble Quilters
Beautiful rich, dark, warm colours

I printed the pattern out
Looked at the Tutorial
Pattern here

Organized my strips

Sewed them together

Blocks all stitched together

Sorting out the backing strips
The backing is the rest of the strips sewn together
Can't get much easier than that!!!

Last night the backing and quilt top together

The back is together

So happy with this!!!
There are instructions on the pattern for larger sized quilts
So you never know, another day I might just do it again!!!

Thanks so much Fat Quarter Shop and Kimberly for a great Tutorial and Pattern
I'm sure to come back for more!!!

Post Script......I emailed Kimberly and showed her my quilt top and she came back with the following
Hi Dzintra,
Thank you so much for sharing this.  Your quilt is beautiful and I am so happy you made the quilt!  You have definitely made my day!!!

It looks great Dzintra.....and so quick. Would be a good pattern to remember for gift quilts. Handy to have the back done as well.

Good morning great artist!

I think one of the things that discouraged me from continuing a quilt I started long ago was that I had and still don't have an adequate SPACE to do such great projects. To have a great result as such, you really need to spread out and look what you can DO! LOVE THIS DESIGN! Are you loving the weather my friend? We are still having warm and perfect weather (it's only August but feels later since I'm back to school) and I suppose you are getting ready for beach weather soon!

Enjoy all the beauty that surrounds you!

What an effective quilt, and beautiful range of fabrics. You made it look so easy! I love how some of the strips are used to make the backing.
