I did it - I made three quilts!

I went to a quilt retreat last weekend and actually finished three quilts - YAY for me!!
Here is one I finished:
Its a "1600 Jelly Roll Quilt".  I used a jelly roll from Marcus Brothers call Ombre Hand Dyes.
You sew the strips end to end til you get 1600" and fold them in half and sew together. Do this until its about the right size!
