Jelly Roll and Fats ready to GO for summer wedding Quilts

Working on thinking on what pattern to quilt this with- hollar if you have a suggestion- cw
May 6th, got the top laid out and sewn up yesterday.  Originally laid out in 6 x 8  blocks, then took off top row and added to the side for a 7 x 7 setting.  Friday night sew-in got the borders on.  Breeley (11mo 2 days) has wore herself out 'walking'.  She laid herself down for a nap!.
A nice set of Fats in greens and blues and a Jelly roll in similar colors soon to be a beautiful Wedding Quilt for a young couple from church. I used my GO and the tri-die and 2 " sqs die to cut a practice block. I hope to cut the blues and greens up into kits for the gals at church to sew.

It might be fun to have the only 'rule' that the solid sq goes in the middle and the tri/sqs and 4-patch are up to the participant. Might make for an interesting project.
From the practice pieces you can see that the 'star' can spin right or left and the corner patches can go in several layouts. You can also make the star light or dark.
The Jacobs ladder can also be light or dark.

We decided to go with the jacobs ladder block for this project.  -cw
Alright, this last one is just being goofy!
