From Norway With Love Jelly Roll Race

Folded FNWL quilt

It’s been a while since I posted. I’ve been traveling quite a bit which makes it difficult to take pictures despite having finished several projects. But I’m home now, so I’ve got plenty to share!

From Norway With Love Jelly roll

First up is small quilt using a jelly roll from the line From Norway With Love by Riley Blake.

Finished FNWL quilt front

The finished size was about 50” by 50”.

More long arm sewing

I made it using the Jelly Roll Race method that I saw on this video by Missouri Star Quilt Company. I thought it was so cool how fast she made the quilt that I just had to try it. And it was that fast! Here are some photos from the making:

Some longarm sewing

My original plan for the quilt was to do a different pattern of long arm quilting for every few rows and use it as a sampler. But as it turned out, I liked the finished quilt so much I decided to just make something I really liked. I used it to practice swirls and was pretty happy with how they turned out.

Finished FNWL quilt back

Here’s the back side. It’s kinda funny to me because the swirls become rounder (as opposed to being more square) as you get farther down the quilt since I got better at them as I went along. But I definitely love this pattern and plan to use it frequently.

Showing the binding of the quilt

Finally, I decided to do hand binding method on this one. Not sure exactly what the fabric is but it’s a leafy green crosshatch that coordinates nicely. The hand binding was pretty relaxing actually. I did it in a number of sittings. It takes a while, but it certainly does look nice!
