Jelly roll sampler block 2

Well, here I am at the end of another weekend with not a whole lot to show! I had to get report cards done this weekend and my back is still bothering me so sitting for any length of time is still difficult. I did manage to get the binding sewed on the elephant quilt. I like it because I didn't just sew on a black binding, but I found some multi-colored fabric in my stash and it seemed like it was just made for the quilt. I am still looking for elephant beads. I am not sure how I want to embellish it yet. I am still looking for the right beads.
I also sewed the second block in the jelly roll sampler quilt. I like this block much better. I am noticing that my quilt will be much darker than many of the others. I usually use lots of brights but for some reason this quilt is calling me to use the darker colors. I may remake this block in lighter colors, I really liked the pattern. I can't wait to see what comes next!


  1. The dark colors give it a very sophisticated look. I think I would like to see it in light colors too.

  2. Oooo! I like the dark colors! Very cool!
