Boho Quilt Finish

I have a second finish for the year to report! Yay! I purchased the fabric, 20 fat quarters of the Indie Collection by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics, back in February, 2014 from Moona Fabrics on Etsy. I finally made the first cuts back in August last year. It's a simple quilt that didn't take long to piece.

Started by cutting from each fat quarter 9 strips. 
Three strips measuring 3 inches, 
three strips measuring 2.5 inches 
and three strips measuring 1.5 inches.

After cutting the strips I threw them in a bag and mixed them up.

From the bag I would reach in without looking and grab two strips and sew together. 
Chain piecing is very handy here!

After sewing together four pairs, then each new piece would get pressed and cut into three inch strips.

Once all the strips were cut then they went back into the bag and were sewn together end to end creating one really long strip, in this case a total of about 1920 inches in length, as in joining a jelly roll for a jelly roll race quilt.

Once all the strips were sewn together end to end then I treated it as a jelly roll race quilt.
Start by folding the one super long strip in half without tangling it and sew. The first couple of folds is the longest most tedious, but once past that it goes really fast! There are lots of jelly roll race quilt tutorials out there so feel free to Google away until you find one you can follow if you're not familiar with it. :-)

Once it was sewn together I shipped it to Sharyn of Blossoming Designs to work her quilty magic. Then all it needed was the binding and a photo shoot. My sweet quilty model made it shine!

This quilt is available for purchase in my Etsy shop, DolceQuilts
