well I loaded up this morning with this jelly roll, coffee and instructions from Moose on the Porch Quilts.
Clever Konda is offering this quilt along on her blog, and seeing as I had a spare jelly roll,I thought this sounded like a pretty good project.
So I followed the instructions, using my Moda Jelly Roll - Bistro
and tah dah!! Block one done....

Then I decided to continue piecing this quilt which I started at Thursday Quilt Group, week before last, and haven't really touched since...
so deciding on the layout, I pieced and bordered and voila!!! This was a Moda layer cake - Boutique by Chez Moi, lovely and colourful.
now I just need some backing and binding, and finit~ I will have to wait until I go to town (Dunedin) next week then...
