June Jelly Roll

OK, I know I have no business starting another project! :0) but I am. Someone posted about the feeling of starting a new project. True! This is for Doreen's June project made with a Jelly Roll and/or stash fabrics plus a background.

After a busy weekend, yesterday we woke up to a surprise morning thunderstorm. Didn't boot up any computers (good decision as a transformer near our home was hit closing down the Chico airport) which gave me the morning to pull for this project. I am using this batik jelly roll, sitting on white fabric for the background...
It only had 30 strips so I also pulled from my stash...
There were duplicate fabrics in the jelly roll so I hope it will work for this project!
 Even tho I told myself not to worry about matching up fabrics it still took me forever! Batiks are a challenge with color/contrast changes and oh so busy!
Doreen will be posting the next part soon! 
The pattern is called Willow Weave. Can't wait to see how it goes!

Weird weather...  we had a June record HOT 110 degrees on Saturday to a 40 degree drop in temp with thunderstorms and rain on Monday. Forecast is for 80s all this week. Yea!!! Have a wonderful week, thanks for stopping by :0)


  1. I'm curious, I can't wait to see what this will look like.
    Haha, really it put Chico Airport out of commission?!

  2. Such nasty weather! Happy to hear that heat has moved on! Your batiks are beautiful! This will make for a very pretty quilt!

  3. Yikes, that is hot! Have fun with the June sew along.

  4. Such a perfect choice of fabric for Doreen's sew along! Your quilt is going to be gorgeous !

    It was Way to Hot for me last weekend too !

  5. Fantastic colors.

  6. Batiks - my favorite as you now! Cutting a quilt to take to Tahoe for a new Grand Niece due in Sept. Just finished one for the big guy born in April. Got to have projects going while we are there. Will drive up the 23rd of June...call me if you can make it up to the lake. Friends coming in around the 4th, my brother also at some time. Would love to hug on you and have a good visit!
