Jelly Roll Twist

So do you remember when I  started a new Shortcut Quilt last month, Well I  am super excited to get to share the finish today!!!   This is Jelly Roll Twist and I had so much fun making it.  I just love the Shortcut Quilts because they are so fast!!  I actually had it all finished sans the binding in December.


I used a combination of Sweetwater's First Crush fabric line and Sandy Gervais' new #love line.  Don't they play so perfectly together!!   I just love all of those happy hearts and flowers in beautiful bold red, black, and white :)


And I varied from the fabric layout in the pattern a bit.  I opted to  just do the squares and strips totally random and I have to say, I just love it!!!   Don't you just love getting that "looks like super scrappy" look when really it is just a basic block rotated.   So fun!!!



When it came time to quilt it, I decided on a simple all over echoed paisley design.  This is such a fun and fast filler and I love all of the happy curves.  I have a video tutorial for this free motion design over here if you want to see how I do it ;)   It was hard to decide what color to quilt in as regardless what I choose it was going to pop on some fabrics and blend with others.  In the end, I went with red :)  

And that is my Jelly Roll Twist quilt!!!   And it is ready just in time for Valentines day!!!   I have never made a Valentines quilt before and I am excited to have this draped over the couch ready to snuggle up in front of the fire place with the special people in my life ;)


Oh, and if you want to make your own Jelly Roll quilt, you can pop over to the Jolly Jabber and get the free pattern as well as check out the video tutorial for making it ;)  You are going to have a blast with this one, so fast and fun!!!


I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

Linking up this finish to Amanda's, Sarah's, and Myra's ;)
