Jelly Roll Quilt - Finished!

Hello 
I got my jelly roll quilt finished.
its gone from this....


to this.........




It took a while, but I made all the petals and leaves separately and sewed them down whilst the quilt was still on the frame.
I stitched the Suffolk puffs down by hand.










 I'm pretty pleased with my quilting here.  It was a challenge to get the feathers to snake around the center section and get them to fit into the space. I've not done that before. I had to roll the quilt back and forth - a lot.



I will be entering this into my local show later in the year.  I always wanted to make a blue and white quilt and now I have.
I've been very busy working on a charity quilt recently.  Here's a wee sneaky peek to finish this post.
More next time......
Until then, happy sewing.
Rhianon.
