Oh, my, that is so pretty!  Does pattern have a name?

sorry, she did not include the name, she actually was asking about getting a new machine.  and now of course I can't find the post to ask.

looking for that one, as I've seen it also.

I think I found it?.  Free PDF at      This one is called Frequency quilt, ~50 x 70”, free pattern by Osie Lebowitz for Timeless Treasures

This quilt came from here Quilt Inspiration website.  (     There are lots and lots and lots of very interesting jelly roll layouts.

Here's an interesting variation.   This is Zig-Zag Strips by Lisa Sutherland and the free PDF can be obtained here:

Zig Zag Strips Quilt Free Pattern designed and written by Lisa Sutherland of Quilt Jubilee

Similar one - free pattern.  I kinda like this better, because it's more random.  But I know you don't really dig random. 

wow, that is cool.  Almost worth buying a jelly roll just to do that pattern.

so I'm looking at how they constructed this.  they make strip sets, then cut into squares, sew drunkards path, then put the squares back together - wondering why?  Just sew the drunkards path to each end of a rectangle.  Otherwise you have to match the rows back together on the strip sets.  Maybe too hard to explain in the instructions.

and gets me thinking, you could do something very similar with the strings if you put them in color groups.  then cut in a rectangle, sew on a drunkards path on each end, opposing corners.  could be interesting.  hmmmm.

stop distracting me!  I need to start on those llamas.  gray & brown, gray & brown and more gray & brown.  at least their little blankets will be colorful.

Oh I like that!  I’ve had one jelly roll for years that I haven’t figured how to use. I really like it so I didn’t want to cut it into bits and I only have the one. This might be the perfect solution!
