You start with two jelly rolls; a solid and a pattern. I chose a Kona Snow jelly roll and a jelly roll of Into the Woods by Lella Boutique for Moda. I love the combination of white, teal, brown, pink, and red in it. It is yummy!
After sewing jelly roll strips into tubes, I cut the tubes into blocks that look like this:
But, apparently, I was in my own little world when I started sewing the blocks together, because mine look like this:
A huge difference! I might like this quilt just as well put together this way, as the original way according to the pattern. But what do you think? It would mean lots of unpicking of seams, and I don't know if I want to do that as I already have five rows sewn together out of eight total.
Have you had this happen? You are happily following along with a pattern, and then "Oops!" I'll have to think of a new name for this quilt...maybe "Winter in the Woods?" Something to think (or laugh?!) about!
