Sharon's Jump Start

When we sewed together on Monday, Sharon came with a plan. That makes all the difference. When one has a plan, making progress is practically guaranteed.

A plan we made about two months ago was to designate July as 'Roman Holiday' month. We both have significant remnants and stash of this fantastic fabric, and it just seems a shame to allow it to wallow any longer in tubs, closet, or drawers.

So for her Roman Holiday quilt, Sharon is using a pattern from Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott called Daisy Chain.

Just look at those gorgeous colors. Mmmm. I have salivated over this line of fabric for a long, long time. Sharon needed to make three sets of  strips. Next she will press these and then sub-cut for squares.

This lower set of strips has a wider neutral for setting squares. It will provide the criss-cross design that will become apparent as the quilt comes together.

I have decided to go forward with that basket pattern from Moda that I spoke of a few days ago. I hope to get started asap. First order of business is a trip to my LQS to buy a pad of Moda Cake Recipe papers #7.

Happy Quilting, Friends!


  1. Little wonder that you are salivating - those fabrics are spectacular, and you have chosen a great pattern for them. That's a new basket quilt pattern for me. Looking forward to seeing it come together.

  2. I can't wait to see what the quilts will look like!
