I've been seeing Jelly Roll Race quilts for a while now, but never tried one. Then I saw a tutorial on Missouri Star where Jenny Doan told about one made with batiks and black blocks between each strip.
Of course you know I wanted to try it with red blocks instead of black. So I did. Here's how it looked. All right, but nothing to get too excited about, right?
So I added a couple of borders. Better. But still not there yet.
Then I had the idea of adding that big Dresden plate I made a while back. Oh, yeah!
When I moved that plate to the top left, a scripture came floating up to my mind, Malachi 4:2, especially the first part of the verse.
So I put it on the label and now I know where it is supposed to go.
The colors are so vibrant, these pictures really do not do them justice.
But I am so pleased with the final outcome. Isn't it fun to watch the journey to a completed quilt? I know I had a lot of fun with this one. The couple to whom it will be going have had some struggles, but I believe this will be a reminder to them of how very much our God cares.
I hope you've made that discovery, too! I would not like to be in this troubled would without Jesus!
Have a great weekend!
Hugs and kisses and lots of love,
