Jelly Roll Quilt-a-long Block1

I was a little concerned as to how this block would come together; this is a first for me, using so many of the strips in one jelly roll to create the block.  I have to say though, I like the way it turned out, I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to block number 2.  Quite frankly, I wouldn't mind having my entire quilt made up of this layout :-)     (Edited:  I just checked the quilt-a-long site and block 2 is up...I think this one will be easier to layout than the first.)

This week, I'm planning to stitch up one of these--

The weather is warming up and I love to have plenty of (pretty little) bags to throw all of my stuff in.  This pattern is one of Alicia Paulson's  designs.  Do you take your own bags to the market?  I do.  Although, this bag might be to pretty for groceries...I love the way she has flowers inside that mimick the fabric print, talk about attention to details, I love it!

Have a great week.  Thanks so much for visiting and please do leave a comment if you have time.

Your quilt block is different and I like it. I like the bag, I would use it to take my embroidery with me when I travel. It is the right size from the picture. Take care.

I love your block Vee. It looks like a piece of chintz with this combination. And will look forward to seeing your shopping bag. I keep wanting to make some but there are so many projects calling my name. A friend of mine made some using a plastic bag as a pattern and they were adorable. Have fun sewing!
