Finally have the blocks finished!

I am learning a lot about working with jelly rolls. Most importantly, I am learning that I need more practice.  Guess I'll need to get more jelly rolls. :D I am so happy that I am finally done with these blocks.


There are 20 blocks total. Half of them have a print in the centers and the other half have white in the centers. Here's a few of my fave's:



I love the colors in this one.  Sherbet orange with the bubble gum pink. Fantastic combination.



I didn't know what to think of this flower pattern fabric at first, but I love it! All the different colors of flowers mixed together so well.


Big prints make me nervous, so I was glad to see the flowers fit into these square cuts so well.


Pink, of course, is one of my favorite colors and this flower print is so fun. The bunches of flowers looks so fluffy and soft.











All I have left to do now is the sashing and the border, but I need to muster up the energy to get them done.  The border consists of the left overs from the jelly roll, which means a whole lot of sewing strips.  I think I need to take a break from this one and call it a 'finish for now'. I'll come back to it in a couple of weeks.

I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finished Friday! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
