Gentle Wind - A Jelly Roll Quilt

| /

When my son was age 3, I had a client’s quilt to finish up on my longarm and no time to do it.  When chaos finally quelled for a hot moment, I tried to finish it up.  Wouldn’t you know, that was when my sweet boy wanted attention.  So, I cut thin 15” strips of fabric and tied them to the grates of an area fan.  I turned the fan on and watched my son laugh and giggle as the fabric strips flew into the air.  It entertained him long enough so that I could finish the quilt.  When I designed this quilt, I recalled that wonderful memory, and so I named it Gentle Wind.  Maybe I should’ve named it Cutest Boy In The World instead!
