Luckily, one of the tutorials was for a quilt top you can make in - wait for it - one hour!! I know. Brilliant, or what?
I doubted I'd be that fast, but I had a sewing itch to scratch. Cup of tea at the ready I entered the Jelly Roll Race.
After an hour and a half it looked like this:
Poor Joan, my trusty vintage Alfa, decided I was taking the Michael and I spent more time fiddling with my bobbin than actually sewing. Then unpicking and re-sewing because the strips weren't lining up.
It was at this stage I decided I'd rather end up with a decent finished quilt top than race on regardless.
If this had been the Grand National I'd have fallen long before Becher's Brook. Having said that, after a mere five and a half hours I had a quilt top and that's a first for me!
It's approximately 155cm x 138cm and will probably become a throw quilt in my newly blue lounge. All I need to do now is finish it!
