The Other Oops

If you remember the other day when I said I had an Oops moment?  

Well after I finished that tractor quilt top on Wednesday last week, I dug out a jelly roll.  I had in mind what I wanted to do with it for quite some time.  & well, I just went with it on Wednesday evening.  I had in mind, this pattern of the 1600 Quilt.  It didn't sound too hard!  

Well no it wasn't really!  So before I went to bed that night I had this one hanging up pegged to the curtain.  It was only the next morning that one of the boys noticed it.  Before that, Stuart hadn't even registered that it wasn't the first one!  lol  So I was excited to have this one used & done.  I really like the fabric range.  It's Reunion by Sweetwater.  I don't get jelly rolls often but saw this in a different shop one day & bought it.  (where I work never stocked this line).  So there you go. One instant quilt.  (also used about 5 bobbins of thread in the sewing!  Wow, I have never run up so much thread so quickly!  lol
