I’d like to share my recent finish – Tutti-Frutti. Years ago I got a jelly roll of a batik line called Gelato by Timeless Treasures. My favorite ice cream flavor growing up was tutti-frutti. It has a light fruity flavor with bits of candied fruit called tutti-frutti. This fabric line of pinks and golds reminds me of tutti-frutti ice cream.

DSCN9218I made a small quilt for a mini quilt exchange some years ago but the rest of the jelly roll sat in a shoe box once again waiting for that perfect pattern to show up.

The perfect pattern was a non-pattern. I attached each 40″ strip to about 30″ strip of white background on both ends. I cut each the strip in half at with different lengths to give a random look. It took me for ever to work out the placement of the strips to get a random but balanced look that I was happy with.IMG_1102
