Love Jelly Roll Racing

Lil' Fluff checks out the back of the Quilt
I've just taken possession of an Elna 5300, my first electronic sewing machine, thanks to the generosity of the late Jean Smith. My Great Aunt was an amazing woman, great in so many ways, and is missed. I'd like to think she'd be pleased with this purchase though!

To celebrate, I tackled a Jelly Roll Race Quilt.  2 x Amy Butler "Love" jelly rolls. 3 hours. Done!
Well, not really done. Now I will 'um' and 'ah' over whether to undo some of the rows to make it more uniform. Then again, the randomness of it is part of the charm. Perhaps I will add some applique on top. Or maybe I will cut it up and incorporate into a different design. Needs borders too.  I have two Amy Butler fat quarters in my stash that I know of, but probably much more. I will have a hunt over the next few days before deciding.
