Jellyroll quilt a top

Just finished adding the rest of the borders and it is a top was going to be 6 blocks x 7 blocks but it would have been huge and would have to send it out to a longarmer so went with 5 x 6 and it ended up 75.5" x 90" good size so now I have 12 blocks left so they are going to be part of the backing.
I have to stop sewing as at this rate I will have all my projects done and have nothing to work on at the retreat in March.

Richmond # 6 block CWA quilt

Finished both blocks did alot of ripping and resewing on these don't know why just glad they are done

Jellyroll quilt

Sew 2 jellyroll strips together
Cut a 4.5"plain WOF to bothsides of the jellyroll strips Then cut @ a 45 degree will get 8 blocks and when pieced 2 lg blocks, the way you turn them you will get 2 different designs. This is what I've been working on. Don't understand why the pics are backwards? start from the bottom and work up on this post.
I've decided to do the first pic of this post got them all assembled and now adding a mint polka dot sashing and assorted prints of the leftover fabric from the cutting on the 45 also got some end pieces that look interesting for maybe part of the border will see what happens Hope to work on the last 3 rows, will be 6 blocks wide x 7 long should be a good size this is a real cheery quilt good for a winter day.
