What does this have to do with quilting, you may ask. And I will answer! I am scheduled to teach a strip class (fabric strips, people, like jelly rolls!) in June. The class I am teaching is my Candy Heart quilt that was published in Jelly Roll Inspirations. We are out of the jelly roll I used for my original quilt, so I needed to make a new sample and was very inspired by some lovely brown and red fabrics. In fact they look so yummy together I decided to name my special selection of strips Chocolate Cherry.
After a grueling week of altering prom dresses I treated myself to an evening of quilting and got the center part of the quilt pieced. I think I am liking this one even better than the original quilt! Tomorrow I hope to get the borders done and hopefully quilt it. Then it will go to the quilt shop for a few months. I hope everyone else likes this one as much as I do!
