Jelly Roll Sampler Block #5

Here it is. This one was just a tad more interesting to make. Had to make sure the angles and placements of the colored pieces were in just the right place. I will admit that I had to rip out a segment and unbelieveably it was one of the inner white pieces. Oh well.

This Jelly Roll Sampler has been addictive. Its hard to wait for the next installment 2 weeks later to be able to "see" and sew the next block. I have been thinking about doing another one in Christmas colors, just trying to decide if I want to buy a new jelly roll or to scrap stash it with what I already have. Better sense says Scrap Stash, but I love using a lovely already matched grouping of fabric.

Whats this, A giant Hole in My curtain?
Well to explain this: this room was originally my boys bedroom before I converted it over to my sewing room. The plan was to make new drapes but that project kept getting put to the side. Then I decided that because it gets so very hot here in Arizona and this window catches all the morning 1st rays, I needed to cover it up to make it a more pleasant temperature in my room. I have this grand idea to put another pocketed cover board right in the window space, taking away the awful heat, and providing me more storage spots. But I think I will miss my friends. You can't believe how many times I happen to glance out that hole from where I sit and see birds sitting on that pole you see out the window. Its been sort of fun to lean back, take a breather from sewing and watch my friends, the birds. I almost don't want to take away that awful hole, but it sure will be more feasible to work in a cooler room. When I get my project done, I will be sure to post about it.

Boy! I can hardly stand it. This is block #4! Being a part of this Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along has been so much fun. I can hardly wait for the 2 weeks to go by so I can find out what the next block is going to look like and then put it together. Now that I have 4 of the blocks done, its starting to look so cute. Check out my flickr for the complete set laid out by each other.
