Back to Introductions today... are you tired of these yet? Sometime I wish you could talk right back to me so i knew what you were thinking... but I guess that's what twitter is for. By the way, are you on twitter? Its kinda fun, on the days when you have time to play with it. Just saying.
Anyway, this is my favorite jelly roll pattern in a long time. Something about it. Its simple. Its classic and so far, I love it in any color combination I have seen it in.
Actually it doesn't even use the whole jelly roll, can you believe that? Just 30 strips if I am remembering my math correctly....
... this is the cover shot of Jelly Parfait. Made from Fresh Cottons with a cream background and a very light sashing strip. Almost completely blends with the background but just adds a tiny bit of sparkle or something.
... a flat shot of the Fresh Cottons version showing the whole layout. We chose green as the bottom triangles but you could completely change the look of the quilt by going lighter or darker here.
... the same Fresh Cottons quilt, closer up. Love those little diamonds.
... a closeup showing a good shot of the quilting.
... same quilt made with Breakfast at Tiffany's. Might look a bit different since we changed it up a bit and alternated cream and green background strips. Same quilt. Totally different look.
... in this Breakfast at Tiffany's version we chose one of the dark chocolate florals for the bottom triangles. Between that and the alternating green backgrounds, the quilt has a much more solid, and strong graphic feel.
... here's what it looks like flat. Love the green tone on tone and the green dot together.
