I quilted my Jelly Girl on Monday, bound it and Tuesday and took it to quilt group on Wednesday. The fabric I used was for the backing and binding. This quilt used two jelly rolls and 83 blocks instead of one jelly roll and 39 blocks that the pattern called for.  So if it is a bigger quilt should it still be Jelly GIRL? Should it be Jelly Lady, or Jelly Woman instead? Just wondering.
I did most of the quilting freehand. It was fun and very fast.
I used a panto for the borders and that worked quilt well.

I quilted loops in the triangles and "smiles" in the hexagons to accentuate the blades to give it a spinning feel. 

I did work on more circles. I basted 500 and pressed 300. I figure I have only 75 more to baste and 325 to press. This coming week my quilt group is having a daytime quilt retreat for three days. We will not be spending the nights but getting together for the days. It is in a location we have never been before. It should prove interesting. I am planning on working on the DWR. (I have made the DWR my project of the month.) Hopefully I will have fun pictures to post.

I hope you all have a great week sewing and busting that stash.


  1. Totally awesome! The motivation bug sure bit you this week! What a fabulous accomplishment!

  2. Great Stash Report - I love the quilt. Your quilting perfectly matched the pattern.

  3. Wow, here you go again! Love your Jelly girl quilt and am admiring your quilting skills!! I would call a bigger version Jelly gal ;) And over 7 yards out - great work! The amount of circles is beyond my imagnination...

  4. WOW, you have been a quilting fiend! Really enjoyed being able to look at a close-up of the quilting on Jelly Girl. You did a great job!

  5. Penny, this is fabulous! LOL about renaming it. Jelly Broad doesn't have quite the appeal as Jelly Girl does it? What about Jelly Lane Bryant? :-) Seriously, I do like Barb's suggestion of Jelly Gal. Your work is a joy to behold. And your numbers are great. Have a great week.
