  1. I think the suggestion of using a chevron pattern to quilt the Jolly Bars quilt is an awesome idea!

    Hi Roseann, I made a quilt with the same Jolly Bar last year and am sending you a link https://somethingrosemade14.blogspot.com/2016/10/bits-of-sunshine.html so you can see how I quilted with diagonal lines which is a nice way to break up the horizontal lines. I do like like your pattern and can see making another Jolly Bar Quilt with the ones I still have in my stash.

  3. My suggestion for the Jolly Bar quilting is either straight line or wavy lines across. Not very exciting but it would allow the lovely lines of the quilt to shine.

      Hi Peggy,
      I appreciate your suggestion! It is a rather linear quilt – the blocks remind me of bricks, the way they are stacked. This top may just be set aside for a bit – I’m not feeling it. LOL ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. Y’all continue to amaze me, not only with your beautiful quilts but also the beautiful fabrics you find.

      Hi Peggy,
      We have been lucky finding good stuff on our road trips! I don’t think we bought enough fabric for the Evening Star quilt so I’m hoping to find that same fabric at a quilt shop closer to us. Otherwise we have to drive back up to Oshkosh where we found the blue for the stars. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Good morning Roseanne, I’m looking at your quilt and I think a large zig zag aka chevron design would look very nice on it. Possibly in a varigated thread of similar colors, or you could select one of the colors in it, but stay in light color values.
    Keep the rows closley spaced about 1″. Or you could do 5 rows of 1/2″ then skip 2-3 inches and do another set of 5 chevrons. That is a nice easy way to quilt with straight lines, which I know you are pretty good at.
    Have fun with it!

      Hi Ellen,
      I hope you and Linda are well! Would you suggest this for Garden Gate or the animal panel? I could easily do a chevron . . . ~smile~ Roseanne

      • Ellen Ison says:

        Garden gate.
        The animal quilt you could do crosshatching in the blocks, again using a thread that won’t overpower tbe pictures. You could just do straight lines along the length of the sashing.
        I hope this has been helpful. 🙂
