Saturday Sewing

Oh, it is good to be home and settle in for some sewing. 
These strips were from 'used' jelly rolls I bought at the bargain table at a quilt show I went to a few months ago.  I didn't have a clear plan for using them until today!
I saw this quilt as a free download from APQS called Square Peg in a Round Hole.
I reduced the size of the squares to 61/2" so I could use my Accuquilt to cut out the squares. 
You use the cut out circle to applique on the accent color solid square- 
Then you applique the background square to the second background solid color so the whole block is used.  *I did back each of the pieced blocks with fusible before they went through the Accuquilt. 
I think when I get a bunch more done, it will be fun to organize the blocks!
I like it when an idea works out the first time!

Oh ,yeah, I am going to have fun using up these bargain jelly roll strips I bought!


  1. Those colors would look fantastic in a little girl's room.

  2. Ooooo! Looks like you're having fun too! Love it!

  3. That is so cool! It's an amazing illusion.


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Another Pair!

The colors look like candy stripes- I thought of the old Fruit Stripes gum  but my daughter said it reminded her of the candy Sprees....
