Friday Night Sew-In Results

 No sewing done here at all last night!
 But I did finally unwrap my Ruby jelly roll.
I'm sure you can guess what I'm going to make. I got all the coloured fabrics cut out and sorted into blocks.
 Here are my sixteen blocks, all bagged and ready for stitching. Now I just have to cut out the white fabric.  It was getting too late to start on the white but that shouldn't take me too long. I think the longest part was choosing which fabrics to go in each block.
So a very productive night for me!
I hope everyone else had a great night too.

I find it takes quite a lot of courage to open a jelly roll. You've done a lot of great preparation, it will look lovely with the white.

wow that is going to be so pretty! first and only time I used a jelly roll, I made the one you sew all the strips together and it comes together in an hour (that's all I had patience for) but maybe some day I can do something more complicated like you (and be as organized as you too). Stopping by from the FNSI sign up.
