Well - this has caught me on the hop! I had no idea that the Blogger's Quilt Festival was coming up until I saw an entry on another blog I follow. For my entry, I decided to go with my Jewel Box Quilt which I finished in July.
It has no special story really, it's just a quilt I made when I set myself a challenge to see what I could make from a Jelly Roll and a Layer Cake. In the end I came to realise that one Jelly Roll and one Layer cake go a long way! I made this quilt, plus another that will be published in Homespun next year, a table runner for my daughter and then I gave the leftovers to a friend and she whipped up a quilt for her grand-daughter. It felt like the neverending supply of Bliss fabric!
So, Stats. I love stats.
