However, every now and then I buy fabric for no other reason than I love it and it's on sale (do you need a better reason?).
I bought this "It's a Hoot" jelly roll because it was the Daily Deal over at The Missouri Star Quilt Co. I've had it since November and I just can't decide what to do with it.
I started by drawing up this mixture of 9-patch and fence rails.
It's fun, but to my eyes it's a little too busy. Then I tried a friendship braid, mixing in a little bit of a white jelly roll that I also have lying around.
I have a Creative grids ruler that makes it really easy to cut the wedges but I'm just not happy with it. So I tried again with a very basic stacked coins design.
I think we have a winner! Sometimes simple is the way to go. As an added bonus, it should be super easy to piece together!
