Yesterday I posted that I had taken a Jelly Roll 1600 class that morning at Mulqueen's Sewing Center in East Mesa. I had seen the finished quilt in their shop and decided to signup for the class. I had no idea what Jelly Roll 1600 was or that it was a "race" to the finish. I didn't even check the web until I came home yesterday from class. Here is a link to a Jelly Roll 1600 "RACE". I won't bore you with the details here but if you want more info check this video. The 1600 refers to the 1600" strip of fabric sewn from 40 jelly roll strips. We used this long strip to begin the race. One lady on the video finished in 30 some minutes. Our winner finished in 48 minutes and we thought we were fast. I finished in 3rd place at 52 minutes and received a Mulqueen's gift certificate. They are to email me a photo of the three winners and I will post. It is interesting to see how each quilt top is so unique.
The quilt top is finished in class and then you add the batting, backing, and binding at home. I will be taking this to our vacation home in Kentucky to complete. I'll post a photo of the quilt when finished. It was fun class.
