Jelly Roll Race Quilt -- Indy 500 Day with 1 Choice 4 Quilting

On Friday, more fabric was purchased at another garage sale for $10 (box and all).  There were a lot of Christmas prints.  I picked out the small prints that I thought my son would be able to play "I Spy" with and cut them and made my own jelly roll for the Jelly Roll Race Quilt with 1 Choice 4 Quilting.  I prepared the pieces by sewing them end to end the night before the big race.  It took less than two hours to zip together this race day quilt (a fun project for nap time).  It was fun because you didn't really know what the quilt would look like until you cut the bottom and opened it.  Fun challenge.  It's the perfect size for my four-year old son!  That is if I don't steal it for a lap quilt.  Happy Memorial Day weekend!

There's still time!  You can get in on the raceday fun.  Go to:
