Jelly Roll Railway Quilt along....

The Fat Quarter Shop has created another awesome pattern
that can be done with a Jelly Roll or scrap strips. 
Jelly Roll Railway

The kit can be found HERE

I decided to raid my 2.5" strip stash to make this quilt.
I could have easily used a Jelly roll but I wanted to use my colorful stash.

I paired those happy colors with a bunch of low volume light background prints that I have been collecting. I think there are at least 48 prints in the quilt.

Now I have to choose a border.
I'm tempted to use the royal blue or the lilac with the flowers and bees...

Bella Skill Builder Block 5 - Half Square Triangles

Bella Skill Builder Block 5
Half Square Triangles

Sorry for the dark picture this time. The true colors show up in the group photo.
I used the recommended triangles on a roll to make these blocks.
It was very easy to follow and made trimming a breeze.

The Fat Quarter Shop has a tutorial for this block on You-tube.

Adding the Avocado Bella solid is going to really spice up this quilt :)
