2021 Designer Mystery – Month 1

I have been participating in the Fat Quarter Shop’s Designer Mystery quilt since nearly the beginning. I did take a hiatus when I took a hiatus from quilting. I have been doing them again for the past 2 years. I decided to participate again this year..

I love this fabric line, Strawberries and Rhubarb. By Fig Tree Quilts.

Joy in the Journey

Saturday was National Sew a Jelly Roll day. I decided to participate, but I wanted to use something from my stash. The main reason was because I didn’t find out about it until the middle of the week. The other reason is that I have so much stash fabric, that I really didn’t need to buy anything.

I had a mini jelly roll (Robert Kauffman calls them Rollie Pollies) from a Sew Sampler box a few months ago. I also had bought a yard of fabric for binding when I got it as I do with most of the fabric I like and plan to keep so I at least have binding in the fabric line. I have several moda Bella whites on the bolt that I keep on hand. I don’t really like to mix fabric manufacturer types, but I wanted to use stash.

I just winged the pattern. I love adding my borders in this partial seam method. It really is quite simple to achieve this look. Maybe soon I will post a tutorial.

The top is finished. I did have to buy a little bit for backing. I think it will make a cute gift
