It's Jelly Roll Time

My very first block for the Jelly Roll Sampler. I got a Kansas Troubles Jelly roll to make my quilt. It's called Butterfly Garden so will be anxious to get it opened and see all the different prints.
This one I made using a strip I had from the batch of scraps I won from Carol about six months ago. I am using a variety of White on White fabrics that I have collected. Good way to finally use some of them

The first week with Hubby home has been a challenge. He really is doing very good until he wakes me up twice in one night. But I had him out to our regular doctor this afternoon and it was a very nice day to be out and about. Stopped at the local Chinese resturant for a take out supper which was very good and Hubby ate a lot for a change.

These are the set of blocks I have made with the Thimbleberry Jelly Bean Mystery quilt which I started the first of the year doing 3 blocks a month.
Now I have received the final set of instructions to finish the quilt.
Lots of cutting to do first and now with Hubby home I don't have a lot of time to spend in the porch. I thought I would take pictures in finishing this quilt for you

This is the second Schnibbles I have made. I used the plate of Collection for a Cure instead of a charm set. Very different from the blue and yellow one I made from the charms that Kim sent me for Christmas. I still need to sew the side pieces on and it will be done. Maybe this weekend I can get some sewing done. Will be back

Thanks for stopping by.  Will update as I get this mystery quilt going.

I love to see you making that jelly roll calls my name too. Chinese food would stimulate anyone's appetite...and glad your dear husband is home and doing maybe a little better.

I'm glad your DH is doing better, hopefully he will start sleeping better, too. I'm getting more and more intrigued by Schnibbles, and yours is very pretty.
