The tutorial for this quilt in a bigger version is here.
A while ago I ordered these shot cottons for a baby quilt. The parents used brown and beige as the main colours in the baby room and did not want it to be too colourful. I had a look around for a nice pattern in all kinds of brown. I could have used the above, but somehow I love the grey and the happy colours in it. And it's very difficult for me to think of a pattern in different colours
sometimes most of the time.
One advice on the net was to make your honey bun quilt from a jelly roll quilt pattern.
Great, but in the end I decided I wanted to use all colours and I loved this pattern by Kersten.
So I bought it, read it, read it again, and still didn't understand it.
The only thing I'm slow at is making quilts (and cleaning LOL).
So I thought I'll make a jellyroll1600 quilt from my shot cottons.
Now I could use my Go! Cutter for the first time for a quilt!
It was so easy cutting 100 strips of fabric into 1.5" strips.
I also put in 5 strips of a greenish fat quarter with tiny peacock feathers as subtle othter colour.
And here's the result!

I hasn't been ironed, I still have to clip all the loose threads (and there are many).
It's too big for a baby quilt, so I'll use my left overs for the back and it'll become a double sided quilt.
Maybe I can show you the final result tomorrow?
I have to hurry now!
