A FINISH!

I'm sure most of you have heard about the Jelly Roll Race Quilt, AKA 1600 Quilt (you can see it here).
I added a border and that extra-wide rick rack.  The green in the corners is because I ran out of the pink. I think that is called a design opportunity.  It's named Sunkissed Jelly and is for my 18-year old granddaughter, Rachel, who will be visiting me next month for a week.  I think it is a very girly quilt, don't you? She's pretty girly.
You just knew that dog had to test it didn't you?

Quilt happy,
Marilyn

Wow! It is so very pretty, Marilyn and your granddaughter will just love it. I love the rick-rack trim and that it is two colors...Miss "Thing" is sitting on it for a test comfort. Looks like it passes the test!!! LOL!

Beautiful! I was wondering how you were going to use that rick rack. Your grand daughter will love it. And I see that it has passed the test!

I'm starting my Jelly Roll 1600 tonight. It may end up being the backing for a black/white/lime green DNP that I just finished. Love the addition of the rickrack. You have to know she will love the quilt, after all, it IS puppy tested and approved!

I love it when you have photos of your schnauzer! It makes me fall in love with mine all over again. After all, they are furry people!

Very cute!! I love the ric-rac on it. It definately is girlie. I see that your doggie likes to lay on your quilts just like my doggie and cats do. :)

You are a Jelly Roll Queen. Beautiful quilt. Love the rick rack. And, of course, love your supervisor that tested this quilt too. Perfect photo for the Pets on Quilts Show.
