Jelly Roll Quilt Top Completed

Here is my first Jelly Roll Quilt top finished. It was started at my group Connected Quilters' retreat at Sewjourn in December and borders added yesterday in the heat. The pattern for the blocks is called "churn dash" and the fabrics were from Moda's "Nest" range. Now I will have to ponder a quilting design - all over or custom?

A jelly roll contains full width 2 1/2 inch wide strips of every fabric in a range, usually 40 strips and there are many books and patterns available for making quilts from them. The jelly roll came from one of my favourite shops (Ballarat Patchwork) and the background, sashing and backing from another favourite (GJ's Discount Fabrics).
