About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Jelly Roll Race Day


Today we had a Jellyroll Race at The Farm….

And our winner was Claudette!


Look at that confident smile!


This novice, who has 2 completed quilts to her credit, beat out some strong competitors…


Like Sue, who came in second.  Sue has been quilting for a couple years now, and she is cranking out quilts on a fairly regular basis.


She beat me.  I came in 3rd.  I'm not sure how the heck that happened.  I accepted my defeat gracefully, but there might be some teenie tiny voodoo doll making in the near future.  She might want to watch her back.  


She beat Nancy.  Nancy came in 4th.  
I'm betting there was some thoughtful decision making as she sewed her strips together.
I should mention that Nancy was the Winner of the 1600" Strip.!!!



Faye did not participate in the race, but she brought along her Jellyroll quilt to share.
She worked on some paper pieced blocks…you can find her work at

We had a fun afternoon.  Good eats, Funny Conversation.
Thanks Again, Ladies!
