More Crochet Squares and Jelly Roll Quilt Update

As expected, my new set of crochet magazines arrived the day after I had completed the other squares.
I've now done them, including one that I had forgotten to do from the last batch.  Now, I really am up to date!
I've also attached the border to my Jelly Roll Quilt.  This wasn't the colour I was looking for when I went out to buy fabric, but it just seemed to work, I hope.   I shall use the same fabric on the back.
I then spent forever cutting 31/2" strips from the remainder of the jelly roll and sewed them together to prepare the binding.  I think I have enough here, but if not, there are plenty of pieces to make some more. 

By the looks of things, I shall be making cushions to use up all the pieces

Very productive.
I like the border on your jelly roll quilt. I saved all the patterns for that one, but didn't make a start yet.

Your JR quilt is looking good! That pieced binding is really going to pull it all together nicely I think! :0)

I love that border on the quilt, and your squares are lovely.

Nice raspberry color for border. Like the use of the jelly roll for the binding.
Keep crocheting the squares look interesting

I like your border fabric and the binding will be great. Moving right along...

Your crochet blocks are so cute too.
