This quilt will so be worth your time and effort, Nicole! Just gorgeous!

I’d suggest Quilters Market, Cactus Quilt Shop (most fabric), and Quilt Basket (cute, plus coffee and yarn shops in the all in the same small strip mall). If she plans to head south of Tucson, there is also a cute shop in Green Valley called Quilt Central Studio. Also, next week is the beginning of the annual gem & mineral show season, so if she likes rocks…


That red & white quilt will be a great one for your brother-in-law! Trimming blocks as you go is often a pain, but it really pays off to do it. And, good for you tackling a UFO & getting it finished up! I haven't been to Tucson, but I'm going to take a peek at websites for quilt shops other readers recommend. Have a happy sewing weekend!

There is a book calledNeedle Travel that is updated yearly. The 2023 edition is published. It lists quilt and yarn shops open by city in the US. There is a code for each shop listing if it has quilting, yarn,spinning, or other needle crafts. It’s about $10.


I have a huge bag of jelly roll strips that I won from Bunny Hill Design like 8 yrs ago.

I would love to make a log cabin with them but I just don't know where the edge of the fabric is to get an accurate 1/4" seam with the pinked edges. I mean, where do you sew?

How did you handle that? I'm so unsure. ;p

This quilt will be very nice. I was gifted many "discount"jelly rolls and found that from strip to strip there was a difference, so I was trimming EVERYTHING as I went along. The first time, like you, I hadn't paid attention to the difference in sizes. I do now!


I really like this quilt. I think I need a red and a blue one. I did find the pattern on Primitive Gatherings website.
