    Need a Pattern for a Gift Idea

    Good Morning Everyone!
    I just received another of my orders (hey, admitting you have an addiction is the first step to recovery right?) from MSQC and in it was the Make Due and Mend Jelly Roll and Charm Pack. I bought them for my cousin, who is teaching me how to quilt, and I want to make her a gift for x-mas using them. The problem? I have absolutely no idea what I can make with a charm pack and a jelly roll, and I don't know what pattern would be nice for a woman who likes country-style decor. Any ideas?

    Thanks in Advance-

    I forget the name of the pattern, but it turns out nice, where you border a charm square with a contrasting jelly roll strip to make a larger block, then sew the blocks together for a lap quilt. I know Jenny has a tutorial on it, and it turns out very "country" looking. I have that same fabric line, and someday will get to work on mine also. I think I'll make it for my sewing room day bed, which gets the leftovers of what doesn't work elsewhere.

    I found the tutorial, it's called "A Quilt Made for the Garden of Eden"

      Oooo I hope someone can recall what that is it sounds like fun and gives me a reason to buy a charm pack with coordinating jelly roll

        I don't have any suggestions, but I like Jean's idea.

          I got so inspired I dug out my Make Do and Mend stuff and played with it. it looks cute and very country using that pattern.
          I'll post a picture after church or later today when the rest of the day's craziness is over! Costume fitting for 35 people in 45 minutes, that means 1 minute and 15 seconds per person, won't that be fun!

            I can just picture the quilt Jean refers to - but done as a rag quilt!! OOOhhhhhh!

              I made that quilt also from Jenny her tutorial, goes real fast and when you use 1 jellyroll and 1 charmpack you end up with a real nice size quilt.
              I did not use borders on mine, so it could be a little bigger if you do put on borders!

              Have fun with your new project!!!

                      I did this pattern too for my mom's lap quilt. IMG_6211.jpg. It comes out very nice.

                            Played with my charms and jelly roll today to take a break from costume making, can't wait til the costume job is done and I can just do quilts again!
