Just a Breeze
(jelly roll project finished)

In searching for a Jelly Roll project to use either Aster Manor or Dandelion Girl I was flipping pages through "Scrap Basket Surprises" by Kim Brackett of Magnolia Bay Quilts. I love her Summer Breeze pattern with Robyn Pandolph scraps but why not Aster Manor??? :-) Have to call mine Just a Breeze because it doesn't indicate any particular season.



Here's my version - Just a Breeze. I don't have binding or backing fabric for this one so I'm not sure how soon it'll be quilted.


I'm ready for my next March project - Aviary Turnover.


I hope that you've been enjoying your needle and thread. I appreciate your visit - come again soon.



In Friendship!
