Today was half a day at my kids school.
I was supposed to go shopping with our new neighbor, but we postponed it for tomorrow.
so this is what I did today :-)
I really love the black squares in there.
I will say one thing....
I bought the jelly roll online it was MODA batiks.
then when I started sewing the strips were crooked and not accurate.
what a bummer! this roll also had large zig zag edges which was a pain to deal with.
But I managed to make it work, it worked with this type of quilt, but if I had to precut into squares, I would have recut everything in the roll. I didn't realize this until first when I started sewing the black squares to the ends plus them the first step of sewing the looon strip together, starting with the two ends. when I started on row 2 I had two strips and two strips sewn together and was sewing those together, instead of lining where I sewed, I lined up the outside edges or rather watched BOTH.
Next time I buy a jelly roll it either has to be cut straight (which I'd prefer) or the tiny zig zag but I know that makes a lot of lint at the end.
