Snowballs and Jelly Rolls

Back in October I started a Jelly Roll Sampler quilt with a Jelly Roll of Amelia from Me and My Sister for Moda and the book Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott. I did 7 of the 18 blocks, then came Christmas stsitching. When I got the box out again after Christmas I didn't like it as much so didn't touch it.

At the beginning of April, two things happened. Lynne at Lily's Quilt introduced the quilty world to a UK charity called Siblings Together, and started a drive to collect quilts that could be donated to siblings separated by the UK foster system. If you want some more info, you can check out the Flickr groups here.

Quilts for Siblings Together
And Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap opened the sign ups for Finish Along quarter 2.
So I signed up for both. I've done some individual blocks to donate to some lovely ladies making up quilts for siblings together, and today I finally got the Amelia box back out.

Today I made nine blocks. They are dead easy and very relaxing. These are the sixteen completed blocks. There are two more sampler blocks then seventeen snowball blocks. The fabrics are very busy and bright, but the it's going to be a very happy quilt, and I'm sure a girl somewhere will get great comfort from it. If I can finish it :)
