I knew that our friends, Sam and Chelsea Miller, were expecting their first, and when Sam let us know that he would be out to visit in a week and a half, I challenged myself to get a baby quilt made in time to give to him. Yikes! Without mom around for help, I thought it might not be possible. I cut corners by purchasing a jelly roll (a set of pre-cut fabric in 2-1/2″ wide strips that are color coordinated), and I amazed myself by getting it done with 2 days to spare! Yippee!
