For those who have not yet be confronted with this new temptation, jelly rolls are bands of fabric 2.5" large (6.5cm) by the width of the fabric, they are really easy to use and open up lots of possibilities, as they cut down the preparation time.
I started to make a log cabin quilt, and now wonder which arrangement to choose.
There are 24 blocks, about 10 1/2" unfinished.
I spread the blocks on the floor and took lots of photos, and would like you to vote on your favourite. You can do that easily in the column on the right.
I think this one is called "Sunshine and shadow" (l'ombre et la lumiere).
This display is called "Furrows "( les sillons), all the light and dark follow a diagonal.
I would mix the blocks and colors as in the photo.
I believe this one is called "Strike of lightning"(les eclairs du tonnerre), but of course the photo should be the other way to see it more easily.
This one is called "Barn raising" (construction de grange).
"Triangles", I suppose you could imagine many more names for this one.
"Windmill" (moulin a vent), the name provides a good description, but I wonder if my colors are strong enough to sustain this design.
This is the book I used, called "Log cabin", it is also translated in French. But I cannot seem to find it at the moment, no doubt it will reappear as soon as I have finished this post.
So go on, give me your opinion by voting on the right handside.
I shall make a quillow with my finished quilt, with my patchwork group.
