Winter Blocks

I've been playing around with my Winter jelly roll, after I decided to use it for the Boxed In pattern in the jelly roll book I bought over christmas. I did all the cutting on Friday after finishing 4OT (and only managed to cut myself once!).


The blocks are pretty easy to put together; I'm happy with the first two, but I'm a bit uncertain about the third. The fabric is pre-printed with a log cabin pattern, which makes it look a bit fussy (in my opinion), though my mum likes it...




Because the jelly roll has 40 stips, and the pattern requires all 40, I couldn't avoid using this fabric. I'm hoping once its all assembled that it will blend in a bit more.

You're blocks are great...I think, like you said when that one gets mixed in with the rest it will be just fine. Have fun!

Hi Kate. Winter is one of my favourite ranges ... have a jelly roll in the cupboard myself. I reckon the last block will blend in fine when you've done all the others.

Your blocks look great, although I like the first 2 the best. But the 3rd is still looking very nice

Hi Kate - I love these blocks and the third one will look great in the overall quilt. Really really love your star quilt! Gorgeous!
