Jelly Roll Racing

Recently members enjoyed a Jelly Roll Race. Sewing machines at the ready, all were keen to be finished. jelly go

For almost an hour, barely a sound except the racing machine motors, was heard!

One by one, the competitors finished and laid the quilts on the floor of the hall.

The results looked like a giant jewel coloured carpet and all were very happy with the result. Especially happy was Louise who finished in approx. 45 minutes; we hope that she didn’t eat all her prizes at the one time, a packet of jam (jelly) roll sponge cakes and a bag of jelly babies. jelly winner

The resulting quilts were much admired and we all remarked on the speed and variety of the quilts made. It was declared a great success by all and lots of fun was had!
