Jelly Roll and more
I've enjoyed the stress free hand stitching that my jelly roll project has provided, one of these blocks shown above. However the strange thing is that in doing this my mind has been free to wander and I've had ideas for JQs and for larger pieces later! So.... I have tried some samples for the August JQ. Using Markal sticks and some appliqué with raw edges and experimenting with weaving together strips of fabric to create a background on which I can stitch, so perhaps the Jelly roll was a a needed break to kick start myself again!
More of the weaving experiment later, I'm trying to do the machine stitch work now saving the hand stitching for a couple of train journeys.
