Karli's Quilt - WIP

I love using pre-cut fabrics, except for cutting time that is halved, I love that the fabrics already match and that the difficulty having to choose fabrics that works well together is completely eliminated.   

I've made a few quilts using jelly rolls and charm packs and if they were more readily available here in South Africa I'm certain I would use it most of the time. 

'Willow by Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Jelly Roll'
I'm going to make a baby quilt for a friend, they are expecting their first baby and Karli is due in September.  They are so lucky to have a name picked out already.  The night before Kayleigh was born, we still had a list of about 8 names to choose from, and in the end we decided on a completely different name, one that wasn't even on the list, LOL  

She ordered these fabrics all the way from the US from Missouri Star Quilt Co and she has entrusted me to make her something really special..


Isn't it beautiful?  I cant wait to start!

I will keep you updated on the progress...

Happy quilting.

The fabrics are just beautiful. I'll be watching to see what wonderful creation you come up with. Thanks so much for sharing.

I, too, love the way the precuts take all the guesswork out of designing.

Love the fabrics. MSQ Company is excellent for pre-cuts too. (My daughter is a Kayleigh too!)

Love those fabrics. My quilt shop gets limited amounts of precuts so I order a lot online. They make it so much easier to have a scrappy, coordinated quilt.

That's a beautiful jelly roll! I love those colours! Can hardly wait to see what you're going to create with it!

Oh Marelize this is a gorgeous selection of fabrics but then I love Riley Blake. I'm busy wondering what your design will be and how you'll quilt it - I know one thing for sure, it will be gorgeous :)
