Tumbler Quilt

I made this quilt to tackle a few things that I always wanted to do:

a.) Use one of those cool looking "Jelly Roll" things they sell in craft stores
b) Make a quilt using a one block pattern
c) put together a project FAST so I can actually accomplish something!

So when i was playing with the jelly roll, i realized i can just cut the strips on an angle and make perfect little tumbler blocks!

sewing blocks

Tried to line up the strips on my design wall
In the end the blocks never lined up right....  but it was fun and fast to make, and looks very pretty on the bed!
Xmas lights- my makeshift quilt hanging system!
