Jelly Roll Waves {a New Pattern!} + Finished or Not Friday and TGIFF {a Linky Party!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday and Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday! where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finishes this week are three quilts plus a Not Finished quilt top in Jelly Roll Waves, my newest pattern!  I loved making this quilt so much that I couldn't stop and just kept making them!  MAKERS GONNA MAKE!!


Jelly Roll Waves includes instructions for 6 sizes from baby to king, something I strive for in all of my patterns.  Jelly rolls can be used for traditional piecing, and strip piecing instructions use fat quarters.  Yes, another pattern with both traditional and strip piecing instructions included!!!  I usually prefer strip piecing, but I found this quilt was just so fun to piece individually.


The blocks can be laid out in vertical waves or horizontal waves, and the pattern includes those directions, too!!

The pattern also gives guidance in creating rows in different colors like this quilt below.


Also included in the pattern are details on how to make an ombre quilt.  Have you ever looked at an ombre jelly roll and wondered how ever would you cut it so the lights and darks end up where you want them?  I've included cutting instructions on how to cut an ombre jelly roll so it looks as beautiful as this one!


I made the blue version to test the strip piecing instructions.  This one is awaiting quilting.


Shannon of The Flemings Nine proofread and tested the pattern for me.  Her version is soft and sweet after the wild and crazy boldness of my quilts!


Each quilt will be featured in a future post, giving more details about each one.

Jelly Roll Waves is available to purchase in my Craftsy Pattern Shop.  It will be listed in my Etsy Pattern Shop soon, as well.

Finished or Not Friday {a Linky Party!} + Pastel Rainbow Wave Lap Quilt

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a pastel Rainbow Wave quilt.  This quilt top and matching backing have been in my closet for at least three years, so I think it was time to finish it up.  It started out as a twin quilt but shrank so much when washed that it's now an oversized lap quilt.


Fabrics are a Kona New Pastel jelly roll and a white jelly roll.  I bound it with a Boundless white solid, and it matched the Kona perfectly.  This is the first time I've used Craftsy's Boundless solid fabrics.  It feels just like Kona cotton and will be my new go-to for background strips.


I remember being so excited to find this perfect backing, and I'm even more excited that it's finished!
