I've really been in a slump lately about getting any sewing done. I think the latest quilt is getting me down. There is so much work involved in it and it's taken so many months, that sometimes I just can't face working on it. I've not "let" myself start on something else because I don't want it to turn into a UFO but, I have to do something. I worked on the applique hearts last night and got a couple of them sewn on.
To get out of this rut I started on the quilt for my son and his girlfriend. They told me the colors they liked, red/gray/black/white, and I got some of the After Hours collection at Connecting Threads. The jelly rolls are only 20 fabrics so I got 4 of them. This was actually perfect because it takes one JR strip to do each color in a single braid, there are 4 braids. I got a black with a red/white patterned stripe for the piece between the braids and the large-scale print for the border. I'll have quite a bit left over, 36 strips and whatever of the yardage is left, to make something else with it. Maybe a little quickie from the Jelly Roll Quilts book.
