I’ve said time and time again that organization just isn’t my strong suit.  I sometimes think it’s the product of having too many irons in the fire.  Time and time again I’ve had to apologize for not being on top of things and this is another of those times.

As I was going through my email inbox today….I mean all the way through it…down to the very-very bottom.  I only do this a couple times a year-even though I know I should do it more often.  I found a few notes that I should have answered sooner.  I found a few things that were buried in the spam…and I found this…

How to Make a Jelly Roll Quilt: 9 Jelly Roll Quilt Patterns
Fave Quilts put out a Jelly Roll Quilt ebook, “How to Make a Jelly Roll Quilt: 9 Jelly Roll Quilt Patterns” ..and we have a quilt that is featured in it!

Can you believe I didn’t tell you??  Mollyhall one of the great gals that works at Fave Quilts worked hard at putting the book together and she did a great job.  She’s the same gal that collects and organizes all the great patterns and tutorials you see at Fave Quilts.  If you have a jelly roll or two lying around, you’re sure to find a great pattern in this book.

You might remember a bit ago Kelli and I made this quilt -Chocolate Covered Cherries- and offered a free pattern for it. Find the free pattern here if you missed it.

Well in the design process from start to finish of this quilt we had few debates and had made a test sample to see what we liked for colors.  We didn’t know if we wanted something scrappy or if we even wanted a two color quilt.  Kelli was itching to make a two color quilt so she tried some test blocks and put them together into this.

Kelli didn’t like it and decided that making the quilt into a big two color quilt was not what she envisioned the quilt to be.  The little test piece got set aside.  Then when I was cleaning the sewing room this week I found and it.    Now with fall here and Halloween getting into swing, it’s been revived into a cute little table topper.

I took it and machine quilted and bound it.  I have to say it turned out cute as a table topper…dimple but cute.  I can see a display of mini pumpkins on looking all festive.  I don’t know why but this next picture makes it seem almost navy.  It’s not.  It is black.

Anyway, we think it will make a perfect table topper.  Change it up for the seasons making it either two color or three color or scrappy.  I can see green centers and red nine patches for Christmas!!

For the quilting I used a brown thread.  Surprising right??  They say black and brown don’t mix so it was quite a debate for me….

Okay, I’ll make the confession here.  I thought the brown thread would look good.  I almost changed to charcoal but I was lazy and brown thread was already in the machine so why not give it a try.  In the end, it was the right choice anyway.

We wrote a new set of printable directions for the table topper version.  You can find them here.  I gotta say BRAVO to Kelli.  She has become an awesome pattern writer!!

..and here is Betsy in her quilt modeling debut.  In reality these are the actual colors of the topper.  The other pictures wash it out.

Betsy wouldn’t hold still so the picture is a little fuzzy but what a cutie!!
