Thrifty Quilting

I find myself completely engrossed in quilting - actually doing it, reading about it, watching tutorials on Youtube. Yep, definitely got the bug!
So, what to do next.......

Have picked the Speedwell Quilt in here.
It's from this book

Two from One Jelly Roll Quilts: Designs to Make 20 Adorable Small-Scale Jelly Roll Quilts
Although the instructions are for using half a jelly roll, my plan is to make my own jelly roll strips, using thrifted fabric. So, lots of visits to charity shops to look for interesting fabric in good condition. Bedding is often the best buy, especially if it new or as good as. Will also have a search in the land that time forgot, (aka spare bedroom) to see what no longer worn clothes can be procured.
Will post any WIP's.
